The modern turbocharged TDI engine of the OCTAVIA COMBI GREENLINE achieves fuel consumption of a mere 3.5 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of just 90 g/km while retaining the driving dynamics. The turbocharging delivers ample power in low rpm, where the engine is in use most of the time.
Brake energy recovery translates into efficient energy management and a simply clever way to help reduce fuel consumption. Kinetic energy is transformed into usable electricity and stored in the battery or used in electric systems, saving the fuel which would be otherwise used on these tasks.
When a vehicle is stationary, the engine continues to consume fuel and emit pollutants without delivering any benefits at all. This is where the Start-Stop system comes in, automatically switching the engine off when the car is at standstill, thereby instantly reducing fuel consumption.
The right choice of gear ratio can save fuel and increase driving comfort at the same time. Lower engine speeds mean lower fuel consumption and a quieter engine. The gear change recommendation is made on the instrument cluster display.
Using low rolling resistance tyres is a simple way to lower both fuel consumption and emissions. Lower rolling resistance is achieved with a bespoke rubber compound, specially designed tread and higher recommended pressure.
One of the modes offered by the Driving Mode Selection system is Eco – a mode for environmentally conscious drivers who make economical driving a priority. A feature of the Eco mode is a specific mode of engine control, the Climatronic air conditioning, and AFS headlights control.
