Pros : Style, driving pleasure

Cons : Hard to find

Look and Style If we compare the looks of the new Skoda Fabia with those of its predecessor we will observe that it has new headlamps, tail lamps, fog lights and all new front grill. The interiors have also been redesigned with entirely new color combinations. The new alloy wheel cover design increases the looks of this hatchback car. Comfort With new 1.2 litre pertrol and 1.6 litre petrol, and 1.2 Litre diesel riding on new Skoda Fabia is more smooth. Use of leather in the interiors gives new Skoda Fabia a soft look and feel. Large controls and displays make the ride a lot easier for the driver. Pickup The 1.6 litre 105 Bhp Petrol, 1.2 litre 75 Bhp Petrol and 1.2 litre 75 Bhp diesel engine in new Skoda Fabia make sure that the hatchback gets enough power to steer through indian cities and highways. Mileage My diesel car gives 13.0 kmpl in city and i think it will offer more on highways as i haven't tested it much on the highways. Best Features Appearance, Comfort, good mileage Needs to improve I think there is little to be improved of this little gennie. Overall Experience In all, the new Skoda Fabia is a solid hatchback for Indian roads. Best quality interiors apart from driving pleasure is what I like about the new Skoda Fabia. I have also driven Hyundai i20, Ford Figo, Indica Vista, and Honda Jazz but I like Skoda Fabia than these cars.

    You forgot to quote the horrible After Sales Service that Skoda is famous for.. and the cost of spares/ownership can put even a rolls royce to shame :).. ask me I owned that diesel noise box.. if its the looks that you are after go for i20 and polo (from which fabia was designed)

    vishnu |04 May,2011 11:52:19 PM

    New fabia is having the same engine which is used in polo. it doesn't make much noise.Cabin noise is very very will get 20 in highways. but its less powered when compared with the old fabia

    Buy a Skoda and then u may have to sell your granny to maintain it. The dealers of Skoda are handpicked bastards available in the market and they do the job of fleecing the gullible customer very well. Actually, the spare parts cost more than the car. Once the warranty period is over the dealer themselves will manipulate with the parts and fill their pockets. Never trust a Skoda brand in India. Buying a Skoda means bringing home your worst nightmare in full throttle. Believe it or go ahead and make your life miserable.

    i see the frustration. can you quote facts as i do not want to experience this

  • hari |05 May,2011 10:31:21 AM

    hey guys i never felt that the service of skoda is miserable ,i had 4 skoda cars and i never felt that it is so expensive

  • Naveen Reddy |05 May,2011 12:13:22 PM

    I too accept abt the pricing of spare parts... but the new fabia is almost 70% localized and I compared few parts like bumper, its cheaper than swift bumper. Also I have not faced any problem with service... may there are few guys facing prob in service but i think every other car manufacturers have the customers facing service problems. But I am sure there is no service prob at least now with Skoda... we too own two Skoda cars. Adding to this... I too heard there are service prob with Fiat, but my brother own a Fiat car and he did not face any prob with them, in fact he is very happy with their service. I think its the case with very automobile company available in india, i think its the prob with the dealers...
