New skoda fabia review

New skoda fabia review

With the experience of Tata Aria visit still fresh in my mind, I was in a dilemma when I was asked to visit the showroom to have a first-hand experience of the new Fabia. The reason was simple-with the kind of regard I had for the old Fabia, I didn’t want to see a stripped down version and change the image I had in my mind of the first true luxury hatch in India. But, I was left with no choice and had to go to check her out. One first look at the car and I slightly felt comfortable. The car, though cheap by around 70k compared to the previous avatar, did not look as bad as I had expected. Instead, the fresh new face, with the wider peeled headlamps and bold new grille and the monstrous looking fog lamps, gave it a character, like some of its higher-priced siblings. The flow lines from the sides of the bonnet gel with the upper grille so well, and looked inviting. The lower grille had also received a fair amount of makeup, and with the low air dam at the front, the car gave an impression of a toned up version of the old Fabia. The car length has also been increased by 8 mm and comes quite close to the line of control between a compact and an entry-mid car. The height has also, gone up by 8mm, and the ground clearance by 12mm, which is…huge.

I brought in this machine into my family. Learnt to drive on it and today cherish the moments I spend with her. She is comfortable as for the driver and passenger. Its a good car for a family of 4. Short distances 5 people could be seated. Have travelled on it multiple times on long drives of upto 500Kms one way and managed to get 18kmpl if speed is within 80kmph on high way. City drives I presume she gives about 11-12 kmpl. engine is good, handling is good, you end up feeling safe, which is very important. Have had multiple instances of accidents but always she took the dents and ensured no damage to the body parts. Overall, if you want a long lasting car for money's worth giving a good driving experience, this is a good buy.
