Comments

Control of HC, CO and PN is good in all tests. However, emissions of NOₓ are less well controlled, especially in the high-load test. Here, the high NOₓ emissions are penalised to the extent that the car scores no points in this test.

Comments

Energy Efficiency is generally adequate, with an average consumption of 5.5 l/100 km. In the high-load highway test, efficiency drops to marginal.

Our verdict

The third-generation Škoda Octavia is tested here with the 110 kW, 2.0 diesel engine. With exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalyst reduction and a diesel particulate filter, control of pollutant emissions, especially hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulates (PN), is good. For Clean Air, the car is let down only by its emissions of oxides of Nitrogen (NOₓ). Adequate in most tests, marginal in the cold-start test, control of NOₓ is poor in the high-load highway test, with emissions so high that the car fails to score any points in this part of the assessment. This largely contributes to its modest 6.7 for the Clean Air Index. Its Energy Efficiency is also at the three-star level, with adequate performance in most tests and marginal performance in the high-load test. Values of CO₂ very close to its declared value of 139 g/km were recorded in all tests except the high-load assessment. Overall, an average performer, with room for improvement in control of NOₓ emissions.
