The fantastic new Skoda Fabia vRS will be officially launched in the UK on Thursday 29th July 2010, and prices and specification have been confirmed.
The new vRS is the fastest production Skoda Fabia ever built, and builds on its predecessor's reputation for high performance, low running costs and remarkable value for money.
Available as a hatch and estate, the Skoda Fabia vRS is powered by the fantastic 1.4 TSI 180bhp engine in tandem with a 7-speed DSG transmission, with ESP, HHC (Hill Hold Control) and XDS (Electronic Differential System). Acceleration from 0-62mph takes just 7.3 secs, with a top speed of 139mph (140mph for the estate).
The new Skoda Fabia vRS features stylish 17-inch 'Gigaro' alloy wheels, LED daylight running lights, sunset glass and vRS body kit giving it a very sporty appearance. Customers can also choose an optional white or black roof with a range of body colours, including the new Rallye Green, inspired by the Skoda Fabia S2000 rally car.
Inside, the Skoda Fabia vRS boasts figure-hugging vRS sports seats, a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel with radio controls and paddles for changing gear and MDI (Multi-Device Interface) for use with iPods and other mp3 players.
Overall, the Skoda Fabia vRS offers fantastic value for money, particularly when compared to the competition. Where else can you find a 180bhp engine with DSG, paddles, LED lights and loads of standard kit for £15,700 for the hatch and £16,495 for the estate version?
