At the Geneva Motor Show Skoda will reveal the new Fabia vRS and estate. For the first time, the carmaker is using a double-supercharged, 1.4-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine capable of developing 180 BHP. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 7.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 140 mph. Both versions boast an attractively designed front bumper and integrated fog lamps with integrated LED lights that can be fitted with cornering lights as an option. Also, both have height-adjustable sports seats with vRS logos on the backrests. The interior design is underlined by an Onyx-shaded dashboard and stainless steel pedals with an anti-slip surface.
New sports version of the Fabia
World premiere for Fabia vRS Estate
Unique engine: 1.4 TSI 180bhp
Skoda Auto is presenting the new Fabia vRS hatch and estate at the Geneva Motor Show, where it will join the sports-tuned Octavia vRS. Both Fabia vRS versions are indeed impressive: for the first time ever, Skoda Auto is using a double-supercharged, four-cylinder petrol engine providing 180bhp, in an engine of just 1.4 litres.
A sophisticated compressor-and-turbo combination increases the engine power smoothly and harmonically, and the maximum speed of 140 mph (141 mph in the estate version) and 0-62mph acceleration in just 7.3 seconds in both versions mean a sporty driving experience. With fuel consumption of 44.1 mpg, the Fabia vRS offers high power and maximum fuel efficiency as well as excellent environmental parameters.
Both versions boast an attractively designed front bumper and integrated fog lamps with integrated LED lights that can be fitted with cornering lights as an option. The vehicle`s unique position in the Fabia range is underlined by 17" lightweight alloy Gigaro wheels developed specially for the vRS, red brake callipers, tinted windows, a new rear bumper with a diffuser and dual exhaust. Depending on the colour of the body, the roof, roof spoiler and wheels for the Fabia vRS hatchback will be available in a choice of black, white or silver.
The vehicle`s sports-tuned chassis - with ESP, ABS and ASR - is designed for powerful dynamic and safe driving performance. To enhance the driving experience, the new XDS electronic differential improves the car's cornering ability. It brakes the inside front wheel electronically to increase the torque on the outside front wheel. Accelerating through corners, the resulting torque gives the vRS impressive agility. A tyre pressure monitor (TMP) and uphill start assistant are standard, providing greater comfort and safety.
Both the Fabia vRS hatch and estate are fitted with height-adjustable sports seats with vRS logos on the backrests. A height- and reach-adjustable, three-spoke leather-wrapped sports steering wheel has paddles for manual control of the seven-speed DSG gearbox. The purity of the interior design is underlined by an Onyx-shaded dashboard and stainless steel pedals with an anti-slip surface.
In connection with the new design of the Fabia vRS, Skoda has also adapted the design of its rally car, the Fabia Super 2000. Under new FIA regulations for the Super 2000 category, the vehicle has been widened to 1,820 mm. To improve the performance of the Fabia Super 2000 rally car, Skoda has also adapted the engine`s air intake and exhaust system.
