Skoda Adds 1.0-Liter TSI 3-Cylinder Engine To Octavia Range

Skoda’s new 1-liter 115 PS TSI engine has already started to replace the old 1,2 TSI, as a better, more efficient option in the Octavia range.

This small 3-cylinder engine hasn’t reached every market though, and as of right now, it’s only available in countries such as the Czech Republic, Germany and the UK, whereas buyers in France, Spain and Italy can only order 1.2-liter or bigger displacement petrol units.

Aside from the 115 PS power output, the 1.0-liter TSI also produces 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque, helping the Octavia hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 9.9 seconds as long as the driver is shifting via the 6-speed manual transmission.

A 7-speed DSG automatic is also available, and will only add 0.1 seconds to the car’s 0-100 acceleration time.

The Octavia 1.0 TSI can reach a top speed of 202 km/h (125 mph) and average 5.4 l/100 km (43.5 US mpg) in the city, or 3.9 l/100km (4.1 DSG) on the highway – which is roughly the equivalent of 60 mpg in the US. As for CO2 emissions, they stand at 104 g/km (106 DSG), which is better than what the older 1.2 TSI units are capable of.

Prices for the 1.0 TSI Octavia start from £16,660 in the UK, €19,090 in Germany and 395,900 Kc in the Czech Republic. This engine configuration is also available in some Eastern European markets such as Hungary and Romania.
