Quality combined with economical consumption and an attractive price, the three core values ​​Skoda Octavia Green Line really should appeal to many consumers.

Since Skoda is part of the Volkswagen Group is the Czechs for the wind. The brand sets down and strong sales can be explained by his very interesting model range completely surrounding the slogan "Simply Clever" was built. Skoda is now becoming emerge as the Volkswagen of the 21st century with designs that are affordable without compromising in terms of quality. To ensure that quality is parent Volkswagen, which seems therefore to consumers tastes. In the first two months of this year, sales in Belgium with more than 80% over the same period last year.

The Skoda Octavia is one of those models is eagerly taken by the public. Its timeless design is available as sedan and Combi. In profile, the sedan looks very simple, making it quite boring can happen. Skoda would be solved by a chrome strip to provide for the Octavia, but after a long look in the options list was clear that Skoda does not offer this option. The front and rear gives lucky enough charisma to the Octavia a timeless elegance to give. For the efficient execution GreenLine Skoda has some aerodynamic modifications carried out to create a better air flow. The car makes use of tires with reduced rolling resistance and is on 15 "rims. A rather useless sticker above the front wheels indicates that the model is a green line.


The interior of the Skoda Octavia retains the reliability of a Volkswagen that as we are accustomed. While the total remains very simple but in that simplicity lies precisely a certain charm. When you get in is also the space for both front and rear passengers, there is more than enough leg and head room. In the backseat, we managed during our ride to the Geneva Motor Show, even in a mobile editorial on its feet: enough space for press folders, notebooks and two passengers for a long ride. The driver has very logically positioned controls, a very high-touch steering wheel and instrument panel that a very good read. The chairs are also very comfortable and offer enough support when you're cornering. The Octavia Saloon has no shortage of storage space, besides the obligatory storage compartments is in the trunk space for a respectable 585 liters luggage. The tailgate folds also very wide, making it very easy loading and unloading. Who can even fold down the rear baggage moving 1,415 liters.

The green line version has a 1.6 TDI with 105 hp and 250 Nm torque on board. That sounds at first sight quite limited, but in reality this is amply sufficient. Once the Fabia GreenLine put in motion, he is not difficult to perform in everyday situations. The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h takes 11.4 seconds, top speed of the green line version is 192 km / h. Important, however, that theoretically a consumption 3.8 litres/100 km combined cycle should reach. We drove the Skoda Fabia GreenLine at the Geneva Motor Show, from Ghent but a journey of 821 km. In addition, we consumed an average of 5 litres/100 km, so by increasing the speed limit to drive. Best strong performance since the Octavia GreenLine was loaded and four editors had to accommodate. In terms of consumption and performance so we find a nice balance, especially when the Fabia GreenLine used for which he serves. If you sporty, it may be proportional consumption rise sharply. We did the test period to measure a sporty driving style, and consumption rose rapidly to 5.7 litres/100 km. So if you want a sporty Octavia can be more interesting for a greater capacity to choose.

Skoda Fabia GreenLine convinced us during this road trip with his comfortable ride. The Octavia was almost literally a finger controlled, the car did not seem to give in to his job. This makes the driver very easy to make very long trips, because there are hardly any adjustments needed to send the Octavia on the right path to take. Shifting the five-speed is also very flexible, the feeling here is entirely in line with the rest of the car. The handling feels very familiar and gives a sense of peace and security. There is also hardly sounds inside the cabin, just in the first and second gear, we hear a prominent diesel grunt, but once you get into top gear on the highway are the remains remarkably quiet inside. The front passengers not complain, though a critical colleague noticed a slight noise at the rear, but never was really disturbing.

If that's still not enough to convince the GreenLine Skoda Octavia also with a recent achievement: its price. The base price for this GreenLine version is 20,905 euro, but you get free metallic and pack Ambiente Green Line. This package includes MP3 compatible radio / CD, rear parking sensors, cruise control, leather finishing, automatic light and rain sensor and a rearview mirror with automatic dimming. A very extensive equipment for a very reasonable price, you'd think. But thanks to CO2 emissions of 99 g / km Fabia GreenLine also makes this claim a government rebate of 15% or 2,865.75 euros and an additional discount of 1,800 euros on top of that Skoda offers. That brings the total price of the model tested at 16,239.25 euros, price / quality simply unbeatable.

Conclusion

With such pricing, the customer is not hard to surrender to the Fabia GreenLine. It therefore seems appropriate for a wide audience, people who value quality simply the best on the market want. Ok, the Skoda looks not immediately exciting, but it offers sober elegance. The interior is not outlandish, but impresses with its effortless quality finish and availability of space. The Fabia GreenLine has no trouble doing a lot of kilometers, and the driver and passengers will not tire. The editorial was also pleased with the unanimous choice for this Skoda for our ride to the Geneva Motor Show. His offer space and comfort easily exceeded even last year's car: the BMW X1 . That there is some noise to find the rear window and consumption rises if you sporty get started with the green line appears to be degenerating into nothing more than nails on low water search. Skoda, simply clever!
