The SUV Yeti will soon enter the Indian market followed by a stripped-down version of Skoda’s premium hatch, the Skoda Fabia, by end of this year, and next year will mark the entry of yet another Skoda sedan priced in the range Rs 6-10 Lakh is what we had told you earlier. Here’s more on the facelifted Skoda Fabia.
The new car was unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and we know not if it’s gonna excite many. We believe it all depends on the price tag. The current Fabia has failed to create the magical effect just because of its slightly hefty tag. Features are plenty, but not many are ready to pay the price. Let’s see what’s new and exciting about the new Fabia.
The car will be entering the Indian market in October. There will be a few changes in the appearance. However, what’s under the hood is what’s gonna transform the Fabia’s image. We hear that the new Skoda Fabia will feature a new engine. The 70 bhp 1.4-litre PD TDI Inline-3 diesel engine will be replaced with a splendid 1.2-litre diesel engine. It will carry the motor that the Volkswagen Polo flaunts.
With the new motor under its hood, the facelifted Fabia will hopefully deliver 74 bhp. The engine is more fuel efficient too and low on displacement with cleaner emissions. Featuring Volkswagen’s latest common rail technology, the VW Polo’s 1.2-litre common rail diesel engine ensures excellent overall performance. The diesel motor offers outstanding fuel economy and is incredibly quiet as well. The new Fabia will hopefully perform in a similar manner.
