Skoda's superb fuel economy CHEAP, NOT NASTY: Skoda's TDI is thrifty on fuel. NEIL McDONALD LAST year's Global Green Car Challenge threw up all sorts of fantasy-land economy figures. However, one of the surprises was the Skoda Superb 2.0 TDI. It recorded 4.59 litres/100km despite being a competing vehicle carrying gear as a support vehicle. We've just spent a few days in a the 125kW/350Nm TDI and we can attest to its real-world thriftiness. We recorded a low of 5.3 litres/ 100km --- .1 of a litre better than the car's official figure --- in a mix of peak hour and mostly country driving over more than 450km. With a delicate touch, the big Czech will deliver more than 1100km of driving between refills. The exceptionally roomy Am- bition TDI is also not too far shy of the Ford Falcon or Holden Commodore when it comes to practical cabin and boot space. Not only does the boot open conventionally but press another button and the whole rear window and boot opens --- hatch-like --- to reveal a massive luggage area Skoda calls the TwinDoor. The TDI impressed with its comfort, excellent seats, quiet ride, responsive engine and solid build quality. The only mark against our TDI was the faux wood panel on the centre console, which was lifting. New year New Nissan X-Trail ST Manual $31,990 Drive away Metallic paint as shown $495 extra.
