Pros : safety,road grip, features.

Cons : engine sound.

Look and Style:it has a great look when u see it from front view it gives u a sedan look.the style and aerodynamics shape gives a branding feel. Comfort the overall comfort is when it compared to other hatchback models. Pickup the pickup is average in 1.2tdi engines, petrol engines are overall ok. Mileage coming to mileage it gives u effective mileage on highways, when u drive perfectly. Best Features crumple jones, tight shut lines, door bars.

    Its quite early for right comments (review) for me, since just driven for a week and only 1000 km. But can share ones feeling. I opted for classic petrol. Drive is good, compared to Figo or Maruti Vechil of similar class i.e. 1.2. Pick up is smooth. You can feel the difference, its visible and felt. 4.35L is advertised price, the actual cost of car is much more, if you take Skoda Shield into account (extended warranty for 2 years). Car is sold only with it. Extra 25-30k. Its quite trim down variant of Skoda Classic European version. Engine is quite Noisy. I am looking for doing some damping under the hood. Don't know where to do it in Delhi NCR. In Europe car is available with proper sound proofing and hence quite successful. Hope Skoda Motors India, will learn from TATA (as in case of continuos improvement by doing small changes in Nano) and will do some by reducing Engine noise, and adding stop and drive facility for greater fuel economy. The same shall be be available as accessory for old customer of Skoda Fabia like me.

    i want to ask certain questions For Skoda Fabia 1) Averages in city and outside city in Petrol and diseal Model? 2) Maintenance cost upto 4 years and after 4 year. 3) Cost of spare parts high or low? 4) Why Skoda cars' is not seen in US market? 5) Running Smoothness only with 3 cylinders instead of 4 cylinders? 6) cooling of AC? 7) Resale value after 5-8 years?

    vinod |21 Feb,2011 10:55:37 AM

    HI bhadresh, responding to ur question, for skoda fabia,petrol u will get avg of 14 in cities and 16 in the highways. diesel version u will get avg of 18 in cities, and 20 in highways depending upon driving.. maintainence cost for petrol vehicle is 5500 for an year, 6500 per year for a diesel version. that will be same for its period of time u use it. spares costs are moderate and affordable too. skoda is a russian vehicle by german engineering. where the nations rivalries lead them to not to enter into the us market, other that nothing, engineering classesness will give u more smooth driving with 3 cylinders. cooling is really good in the 1.2 engine and for rear u hav floor vents, which gives u max cooling. life time of the vehicle is reduced to 4 years, so it depends upon the vehicle condition and the kms u travelled. thank you...

    Skoda Fabia 1.2 Petrol in city - 13kmpl highway - 15.5kmpl. Fabia Diesel in city - 16kmpl highway - 20kmpl. One regular service for the Fabia would be costing about Rs.3500 to 4000 you can calculate the cost of maintenence accordingly for 4 years according to your useage with 5000kms as service interval. American brands are more prefered like Ford and GM in the USA. The Fabia Diesel and Petrol are superb performers with a very refined engine which is also seen on the VW Polo, AC cooling is flawless and very quick. Skoda cars have a good resale for example the Octavia which even now sells at a premium even after its out of production. Thanks, CarDekho Team

    Himanshu Mahajan |10 Apr,2011 12:02:05 AM

    Hey Car Dekho Team, You have mentioned that service interval is 5000 kms, but skoda dealers say its 15000 kms.... what is correct ????

    Its is really shocking revealation that most of people those who have posted their remarks about this hatch are not positive. every time iam in search of some ve remark ;while i am making up my mind to buy this. Only apprehension needed to be addressed is the issue of service & maintainance. Pl.suggest some expert advice.
