Countless new features introduced to SKODA portfolio for 2021 model year
More powerful range-topping engines for the ŠKODA SUPERB In the new model year, ŠKODA’s flagship SUPERB will boast a higher output for its two top-of-the-range engines, along with lower fuel consumption and fewer emissions. The most powerful 2.0 TDI diesel from the new EVO generation will deliver 200 PS (147 kW) as opposed to the previous 190 PS (140 kW). In the range-topping 2.0 TSI petrol version, the output is increasing by 8 PS (6 kW) to 280 PS (206 kW). Both engines comply with the Euro 6d standard, which all of the other engines will also comply with at the start of the new model year.
The power of the 2.0 TDI is increasing from 190 PS (140 kW) to 200 PS (147 kW) in the KODIAQ too. Just like this engine, the 2.0 TDI with an output of 110 kW (150 PS) and 7-speed DSG complies with the Euro 6d emissions standard. The equally powerful 1.5 TSI will also be converted to Euro 6d and will be fitted with a new-generation 6-speed gearbox in the manual version.
New entry-level diesel for the ŠKODA KAROQ In the 2021 model year, the ŠKODA KAROQ is available with optional tri-zone Climatronic air conditioning for the first time and can now be equipped with Area View and Trailer Assist too – just like the KODIAQ. When switching its engine portfolio to the Euro 6d standard, ŠKODA is replacing the previous entry-level 115-PS (85-kW) 1.6 TDI diesel with an equally powerful 2.0 TDI from the new EVO generation. In terms of exhaust gas treatment, it uses the ‘twin dosing’ process – just like the 2.0 TDI delivering 150 PS (110 kW), which is replacing the previous 1.6 TDI and is available with all-wheel drive and a DSG as well as front-wheel drive and a manual gearbox. The entry-level 1.0 TSI petrol engine will generate 110 PS (81 kW).
The engines fitted in the successful SCALA and KAMIQ compact models will also be converted to the Euro 6d standard for the 2021 model year, and subtle details will provide the finishing touches to the cars.
