Comments

The 2.0 diesel Octavia Combi shows excellent control of pollutant emissions. Even in the toughest of the laboratory tests - cold ambient temperature and high-load highway - the emissions are never excessive, and the on-road tests generally show a similar level of performance.

Comments

An average fuel consumption of just 4.2 l/100 km is an excellent result for a car in this category, and demonstrates high energy efficiency.

Comments

Emissions of CO2 are never excessive and those of Methane, CH4, are barely measurable. Values of N2O, a potent greenhouse gas, are elevated in some tests, but this has little influence on the Greenhouse Gas Index of 4.6.

Our verdict

The Škoda Octavia 2.0TDI demonstrates what can be achieved from a modern diesel equipped with the latest exhaust after-treatment technology. The car scores highly in all three areas of assessment: 6.7/10 for Clean Air, 7.7/10 for Energy Efficiency and 4.6/10 for Greenhouse Gases. This leads to a rating of 3½ stars, a remarkable achievement for a combustion-engined car with no electrification to assist its efficiency.
