Overall an awesome looking cars with fabulous features, nothing c...

Look and Style: Its a matter of personal choice but I find the front and side views of Fabia amazing. The fact that its longer than other cars in its segment does add to the look. The front grill, headlights and foglamps all come together to give it a very macho and sporty look. The rear could be better for sure though. I would rate it 4/5 for exteriors. Once you step inside the car, you are equally impressed. Its spacious and loaded with features. It has two glove boxes and one of them has light in it. I love it as it gives extra storage space. The seats are very comfortable even for long road trips (I just did one from Bangalore to Madurai, alone). The only complain I have is the huge bump in the rear cabin right in the middle, which makes it uncomfortable for the person sitting in middle. He/She cannot sit comfortably and have to spread legs to avoid the bump. Wish it could be smaller. The 2-din music system, steering wheel, chrome-finish stick, black-beige interiors all give it a very premium feel. I would again rate it 4/5 for interiors. Comfort: Very comfortable once inside. With AC and light music on, you are completely in a different world. Not noisy at all. Pickup: Initial pickup is ok, not super quick but its good as in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you don't end up ramming into another vehicle in front. You can drive comfortably in second gear at very low speed and the vehicle would not stop. So you need to go into first gear only if your car has come to a stop otherwise second gear is fine. You can feel the stability and power of build quality in 4th and 5th gears when driving on highways. Very stable and quiet. So its a pleasure to drive at high speeds. Mileage: So far I have driven it 2000 kms, out of which 1000 kms are on highway. I have not kept a separate account of highway and city mileage. My overall mileage has been close to 15.5 kmpl, which makes me think that highway mileage is close to 18 and in city mileage is close to 12 kmpl. Best Features: Build quality, sporty and macho looks, comfortable interiors, highway mileage, boot space. Needs to improve: Remove the bump in rear cabin so five people can sit comfortably. Rear of the car can be redesigned to match the awesome front and side looks. The doors can be opened from inside even when centrally locked, little risky in kids are riding. Overall Experience: So far amazing, touchwood.

    I bought the fabia elegance diesel in feb 2012 and I must say that it can overwhelm any low cost sedan. Excellent drive quality, suspension, interiors, security features. Skoda has paid attention to even the small things like a single click on the remote unlocking will unlock only the driver side and a double click will unlock all the doors. The multi utility readings give the top model a luxurious feeling. The rear windshield has a defogger and works really well in winters. The new fog lamps look simply awesome and give the vehicle a smiling look from the front.i personally didnt like the round fog lamps in the earlier version. I got the rear door nicked a few days after buying the vehicle and I must say that the repair work was done in a very neat manner at Jai Auto in New Delhi. The Service Head was really helpful and cordial and got the whole paper work done in a professional manner and the Zero Depriciation insurance policy helped save a lot :-) I just hope that the normal routine services are treated in the same manner and I am sure it will be The only minuses that i observed were the absence of automatic air conditioning and steering mounted stereo controls

      Hi divji, I went through the same dilemma but chose Fabia over Swift, Polo, i20, etc. Most of the stories about ASS of Skoda were old and few of my friends who had purchased Fabia recently were quite happy with their choice. Honestly they have not yet experienced Skoda ASS as they bought in late 2010 or 2011. However, now the parts are being manufactured in India and not imported from Czech so this has hopefully brought down the cost of parts. There are two dealers now (I bought from Vinayaka) so there is bit of competition, which hopefully should/will improve service. But I can understand where you are coming from. Primary reason for me to buy Fabia was I had fallen for it to put is in the simplest manner possible. Once I test-drove Fabia, I did not like any other car that much. Its looks, interiors, safetty features and the overall feel was just very different. So I went with a car, which I love. I myself have not experienced Skoda's ASS so far so fingers crossed. So far the car has been good.
