Pros : styling, driving comfort, stability, power

Cons : noisy cabin

Look and Style The new Skoda Fabia, is a visual treat, well designed and styled car, stands out in the parking lot amongst a whole host of Korean and Japanese models. Look wise, I rate Punto as the only car that is more likely to gain better appreciation from the discerning lot. Comfort Quite comfy interiors, with ample cabin room, enables you to stretch comfortably. Though the back seat is a bit low, compared to a tall boy, which is slightly difficult to ingress... the overall sitting posture is comfortable. The car takes on rough roads quite comfortably... and zips through the smoother road. Ground clearance is also quite reasonable. Pickup Nippy and efficient.. You will feel the power of pick up when you overtake in highways... It's one of the best in class.. Mileage Average.. 13 kms in city conditions.. not too good, not too bad either Best Features Overall luxury feel of the car - including the styling, looks, premium features, driveablity etc. Needs to improve Cabin is quite noisy.. many times you wonder you are driving a diesel car. Overall Experience Quite nice.. Very good upgrades from Wagon Rs and Santro's of the world

    Hi Krishna, Thanks for your review. I am based out of Bangalore and planning for a 1.2 Petrol Ambiente; test drove the car recently and agree with your comments. One more thing which I am worried is after sale service. In many of the reviews and comments I see people are not having pleasant experience with Skoda's after sale service. By the way which color do you have? I am planning for Cappucino Beige. Thanks & Regards

    Firoz, Its a good bet... as a vehicle.. The only concern like you have expressed, is after sales service.. By the way i have seen the sales experience, i don't have too much of hope about the after sales experience. The hope is too many Fabia's, that are joining us everyday on road.. which will force them to step up the service support.
