Models and Specification
Fabia offers great levels of equipment, from entry-level to top-of-the-range:
The Classic trim level includes driver and front passenger airbags; ABS anti-lock brakes; power steering; height- and reach-adjustable steering wheel; height-adjustable driver’s seat; an RDS radio/cassette sound system with four speakers (1.2 54bhp only); “Symphony” sound system with single CD player (except 1.2 54bhp); pollen air filter; and a fold-flat, split rear seat – all fitted as standard.
In addition to the airbag featured in the Classic range, Comfort models are also fitted with anti-lock brakes with EDL and ASR (16v manual and TDI PD), electrically-heated and -adjustable door mirrors, electric front windows, front fog lights and remote central locking with deadlocks. Air conditioning is optional with all Comfort engines while a trip computer displaying time, outside temperature, distance travelled and fuel economy is also standard.
Fabia EleganceTop of the range Elegance models add some luxurious touches. Additional standard equipment includes heated front seats, air conditioning, alloy wheels, heated washer nozzles, ABS with EDL and ASR, and an alarm system as is remote central locking with a folding key.
It doesn’t end there. Little nuances have been designed into the Elegance and the vRS, such as, when the front wipers are on and reverse gear is selected, the rear wiper comes into play immediately. In cars with air conditioning, it’s not only the cabin that remains cool; the glovebox is also cooled, spelling the end to warm drinks.
To compliment the ethos of this hot hatch, the standard equipment list reads as like the sporty cat the vRS is. It comes with remote central locking, a stereo system with eight speakers and a single CD unit, twin front airbags, height adjustable driver’s seat, height and reach-adjustable steering wheel; a high level third brake light, pollen air filter and so it goes on.
