Our Cars: Skoda Yeti 1.6 TDI Greenline

15 April 2011: How does the Greenline's range compare to other Yetis?

The 1.6-litre TDI CR in the Greenline is 9mpg more economical than the next most efficient engine, the 2.0-litre TDI. But what does that mean in terms of miles and how does it stack up to the rest of the range?

All Yetis have a 55 litre fuel tank with the exception of the 1.8 TSI and 2.0 TDI 140, which have a 60-litre tank to stretch the distance between fill ups. Even so, the 1.8 TSI is the model that will see the most forecourt action, needing a fill-up every 460 miles.

Compare the 1.6-litre Greenline to the next most economical model - the 2.0-litre TDI - and you'll find that it will save around £180 per 10,000 miles in diesel (assuming a fuel price of 140p per litre and acheiving the official Combined figure).

I've put together this little graphic to demonstrate the differences.
