Two new Skoda Fabia models announced
The Skoda Fabia range has been expanded with two new specifications
The Skoda Fabia is now available with two extra specifications, the Fabia Reaction and the Fabia Monte Carlo TECH estate. The Reaction is only available for the hatchback model, while the Monte Carlo TECH is being offered now for the estate as well as the hatchback.
The Skoda Fabia Reaction model, which features extra standard equipment, is being offered at an introductory price of £9,690. With the normal price of the Reaction model at £13,405, this is a saving of £3,715. You can read more about the offer on last weeks' Car deal of the week post.
The standard equipment on the Reaction model includes air conditioning, a leather steering wheel, 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a black roof and tinted windows. The model also comes with metallic grey paint as standard, and is available only with a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 68bhp. That means the car will return 51mpg and emits 128g/km CO2.
The Skoda Fabia estate has also been updated with a new specification, called Monte Carlo TECH. This was previously only available on the hatchback model and includes sat-nav, Bluetooth, a new black grille and wheelarches, 17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, air conditioning, sports seats and tinted windows.
The Fabia Monte Carlo TECH estate is available with either a 1.2-litre TSI petrol or a 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine, with both engines producing 104bhp. This new spec for the Fabia estate costs £12,575 for the petrol model and £13,545 for the diesel, and is available with red, white or black paint.
The 1.6-litre diesel model is the most economical, getting 67mpg in the Fabia estate, while the 1.2-litre petrol model only returns 53mpg, though it is a bit faster than the diesel. The Skoda Fabia is a practical small estate, with a 505-litre boot and 1,480 litres of space with the rear seats folded down – that’s 237 litres more than the hatchback model.
