Skoda Fabia vRS - Web Exclusive

New Skoda Fabia vRS

May 17, 2010

The new Fabia vRS is the fastest production Fabia ever built. It builds on its predecessor’s reputation for high performance, low running costs and value for money.

Available as a hatchback or wagon in Skoda’s European markets, the vRS is powered by the VW Group’s 180hp 1.4 TSI engine in tandem with a 7-speed DSG transmission. It also has ESP, Hill Hold Control and the GTI’s XDS Electronic Differential System. Acceleration from 0-62mph takes 7.3 sec, with a top speed of 139mph (140mph for the wagon). Combined fuel economy is quoted at 38mpg US combined.

The vRS features 17” ‘Gigaro’ wheels, LED daylight running lights, sunset glass and vRS body kit giving it a sporty appearance. Customers can choose an optional white or black roof with a range of body colors, including the new Rallye Green inspired by the Škoda Fabia S2000 rally car.

Inside, the 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.

Seen as a cut-price GTI, the vRS offers value for money, particularly when compared to the competition, including its VW Group cousins from VW, Audi and Seat.
