The Skoda Fabia TDI for 2014
It was fifteen years ago now that we first seen the world famous Supermini the Skoda Fabia arrive on our roads. We are now just going into the third generation of the model and it could very well be set to be one of the finest additions from the firm to go on sale. The Supermini/city car sector of the car industry is rapidly expanding and the competition amongst competitors is certainly continuing to grow as the years go by.
Does the brand new Fabia model have the potential to take on some top flight contenders such as the Fiesta from Ford and the new Corsa from Vauxhall though? What changes and alterations have been introduced with this brand new addition that could potentially make you a proud owner of a new Fabia?
The new changes to expect from the Skoda Fabia TDI
So regarding what work has been done to the new Fabia model during production time, we see that the firm have included a total of four engine units up for grabs which include both petrol and diesel variants. There is both a 1.0 and a 1.2 TSI petrol selection up for grabs which sees power development from either 59 brake horse power or 108bhp. If the diesel variety is more you're kind of thing though,a 1.4 diesel engine is on sale which comes in two power forms one packing 89 and the other 108bhp. A seven speed automatic DSG transmission system is also included with the 89bnhp diesel model.
Its the good range of kit to come along with the car that also impressed us. We see that as standard throughout the whole range, some pieces of equipment such as Bluetooth connectivity,heated wing mirrors,front electric windows,remote locking and stop start technology. There is however the SE trim level on offer from Skoda which welcomes in more equipment for an added £1,000 on top of the standard purchase price. Features such as 15 inch alloy wheels,a leather steering wheel,automatic braking, a trip computer and a new surround sound system.
What price have Skoda put on the new Fabia?
The best value for money version of the Fabia in our opinion would be the added equipment trim level which is the SE. Prices for the SE Fabia come in at £15,390. With the competition on the city car market becoming intense though, does the new Fabia have the standards to compete with its rival the Volkswagen Polo in which it shares the same platform.
