Not the most spacious car in the back seat.

Mr Reliable ! — Probably the best small car i have owned, its performance is very economical with a real turn of acceleration for a diesel. The build quality is as expected on an economy built car, its just ok. Safety wise it has loads of extra features including side bags. Cost of ownership is good , its low rated tax and diesel usage gets the best mpg off around 55-60. Its a drivers car because you feel every turn , bump and camber change in the road and have to be a driver rather than a motorist. All in all i would thouroughly recomend this wee spitfire of a car.

Not A Bad Drive Overall — Drive is not suited for indian roads and traffic. Interiors and Build is good. and u have to be mentally balanced* to drive it. (*-sudden adrenaline rushes do not go very well with a fabia). its fun overall, and not on the costly side either

Tadah Hai Par Mera Hai....lolzzz Nice Car Indeed. — FOR : Performance , Interiors , Built quality. AGAINST : Price , Noisy The car is all about nice interiors with a lot of features that you normally do not see in hatchbacks in indian market. Definately over priced but i think its worth it. Build quality is superior and ABS works great , with a sun roof to seldom flaunt.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

The economy

Cons

The look

The Fabia Greenline — The Skosa Fabia Greenline Combi is a very politically correct car to buy because of the very little Diesel it uses. The interior is very comfy and nice and it has a large selection of extra equiptment. Not a car for the eye as much as for the bankaccount.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

cheap to buy, cheap to run, and brilliant heaters!

Cons

abs to eager, could be prettier

45

Fab Fabia — this is only 1.2 70 3 cylinder 12v so not the quickest but not the slowest, easily out run a saxo 1.4 petrol. accelarating is ok and will go just over a ton. fuel economoy is quite good for a petrol, have had 60mpg (i wasnt in much of a rush that day) . admittedly not the best looking of cars but its great value for money and would recommend to anyone. the only thing i dont like is the abs kicks in way too early! a small engined bundle of fun great for a family or first/second car. . . .

Pros

lot of power from a small engine, comfortable

25

Skoda Fabia Ii 1,2 Elegance — Itsa good car, small engine but with nice power boost. precision shifter, got all the addons u need. Best byy vehicle for that amount of money. It accelerates even when going uphill, although some ppl told mhat wouldnt b possible lol. I really enjoy direving it. It spends 8 l of TNG per 100 km. Maintenance - dont know its a brand new vehicle. But regular oil change and stuff is pretty cheap. Braking is great, handling is ok, since its a tall car.

Pros

Good perfomance, average 8.5 litre/100km, high quality saloon.

Cons

The engine is noisy after 3000rpm.

My Skoda Fabia — The quality of VAG in this car, very good perfomance for this engine - 1600cc 105 bhp. The fuel consumpion is good, average of 8.5 lite per 100km. I like the sport seats, they are very comforatble. Also this car contains 6 air bags, ESP, 4 stars at ENCAP. I don't like the noise from the engine, after 3000rpm the engine sounds very noisy.
