Skoda is moving to offer more petrol engine options for fleet users with the arrival of new petrol-engined versions of the Octavia and Superb SE Tech models.
There’s now an Octavia Estate 1.0 TSI 115PS DSG which can deliver official economy of 65.7mpg and a 0-62mph of 10.2 seconds, and a BIK rate of 23 per cent, as well as the 150PS 1.4 TSI and, from later this month, a new 1.5 litre TSI with Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) with a manual gearbox (DSG later in the year).
The Superb SE Tech can now be had with the 150PS 1.4 litre TSI, which offers a reasonably lively 0-62mph of under 9.0 seconds, can be had as an estate or hatch and comes with leather and Alcantara and privacy glass.
Henry Williams, Skoda’s UK Fleet boss, said:
We have added petrol engines to the ŠKODA fleet range due to increasing demand from customers. Octavia and Superb already offer a formidable package and by adding even more choice we are demonstrating our commitment to respond to the changing market and the needs of our customers.
A very sensible move.
