    About to buy a Superb - Greenline or Petrol - advice needed

    Hi all,

    I've decided to buy a Superb and just wanted a little advice if poss.

    I want a 2015-18 Superb Laurin & Klement but not sure which engine to get.

    I use the car and do 20 miles a day urban (A-roads and clear of traffic in the morning but a lot of stop and starting in the eve).

    I've done some research about fuel consumption and emissions etc but what I can't find the answer to is this -

    Should I get the Greenline II diesel or a petrol model? I understand diesels can get clogged when used mainly for urban but wondered whether the Greenline technology is any different in that respect? Obviously it also comes down to fuel consumption and some folk have told me you don't get much better economy than a petrol if just using it for urban....

    Also I'm concerned for the future of diesel prices and laws etc.


    Any advice gratefully received.


    Thanks a lot

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
