2014 Skoda Octavia Greenline Deals

The ultra-frugal version of Skoda’s excellent Octavia saloon (or hatchback, technically) is now on sale from £20,150.

The Skoda Octavia Greenline III defines its size and practicality by earning a combined 88.3mpg on the European combined cycle while emitting just 85g/km carbon dioxide. Theoretical range is nearly 1,000 miles on a single tank of diesel.

Company car buyers will undoubtedly favour the modestly priced but well-assembled Octavia Greenline thanks to its Bik (Benefit-in-Kind) rating of 13% for 2014. A VED band A status also means that owners won’t pay any road tax.

Despite the Octavia Greenline’s environmental credentials, the Volkswagen Group 1.6-litre TDI engine still develops a respectable 109bhp. The model will only be offered with a six-speed manual gearbox.

Options include bi-xenon headlights (£900), satellite navigation with European maps (£550), tinted rear windows (£140), heated front seats (£200), rear side airbags (£280), and cornering front fog lights (£150). The top warranty offer is a two-years extended warranty, which covers five years or 100,000 (£535). The standard warranty is three years or 60,000 miles.

Starting at £20,150, the Octavia Greenline comes with 16-inch alloy wheels shod with high-pressure low-rolling resistance tires to boost fuel economy. Boosting efficiency further is engine stop-start and regenerative braking, which recuperates energy normally lost in the form of heat during braking and uses it to recharge the car’s battery.

The new Skoda Octavia Greenline III is currently available through AutoeBid for £17,333, although further savings for buyers may well be available. That represents an immediate saving of £2,417 for one of the most frugal, practical and best value family saloon cars ever built. Build quality and reliability will also be inline with Skoda’s recent stellar reputation.

Rivals include the Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion, the Vauxhall Insignia ecoFLEX, and the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion.
