2010 Skoda Fabia facelift pricing announced

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Skoda's Fabia range the hatchback, the estate and the Roomster MPV has been facelifted and will soon be available in the UK with a new pricing range.

The hatch model is priced from 9,330 pounds sterling, while the Roomster has a base price of 11,260 pounds sterling. The redesigned models have new engines, a fresh radiator grille and new headlights that have been widened to emphasize the horizontal line of the front end design.

Aside from that, the range also got new alloy rims and is now offered with a wider range of exterior colors. Three diesel units are offered in this range: a 75hp 1.2 liter TDI, a new 1.6 liter TDI that generates 90 HP and another version of the engine providing 105 HP.

These three engines all use common-rail injection and are equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter.

Those who prefer a petrol-powered version can choose from a 60HP 1.2 liter (not available on the Roomster), a 70HP 1.2 liter, an 86HP 1.4 liter, an 86 HP 1.2 TSI, a 105 HP 1.6 liter and a 105 HP 1.2 TSI. All of these engines meet EU5 emission standards.

The advantage to these downsized TSI and TDI engines is that they offer improved fuel consumption and lowered CO2 emissions.

For instance, the 105HP 1.2 TSI coupled with the seven speed dual clutch DSG gearbox returns a fuel economy figure of 44.3 mpg (53.3 UK mpg) and is capable of emitting 123 grams of CO2 per kilometer. There is a 56 grams reduction as compared to the model it is replacing - the 105HP 1.6 unit that's mated to the Tiptronic automatic gearbox.

Press Release

FACELIFTED ŠKODA FABIA AND ROOMSTER PRICES ANNOUNCED

Following on from their sparkling debut at the Geneva motor show, Škoda Auto has announced prices for its new, improved Fabia and Roomster models.

With fantastic new engines, a fresh face and a whole raft of technical refinements, both the Fabia supermini and Roomster MPV are even more attractive than ever. And being Škodas, both also represent great value for money, with the Fabia range starting at just £9,330 and the versatile Roomster from only £11,260 (all prices with 1st April Road Fund Licence inclusive).

The new look is most evident in the redesigned radiator grille and 3D-shaped headlamps, which have been considerably widened, highlighting the stronger horizontal line of the cars’ faces. This gives both Fabia and Roomster a more dynamic look, while losing none of the cars’ elegance and appeal.

Both cars also benefit from a new range of engines which includes four petrol and two diesel units, with power outputs ranging from 60bhp through to 105bhp. The vast majority of Škoda's new engines benefit from direct fuel injection, while many feature turbocharging technology.

The result is a reduction of both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as well as improved performance and refinement. Nowhere is this more apparent than when the new 1.2 TSI 105bhp petrol engine is combined with the optimised, two-clutch seven-speed DSG transmission. This delivers impressive power with excellent combined fuel consumption of 53.3 mpg and a CO2 emissions reduction of 56g/km to 124g/km (against the previous 1.6 105bhp Tiptronic). The four-cylinder 1.2 TSI engine is available in two power levels – 85 bhp and 105bhp. Both of these will also be available with a five-speed manual transmission.

All engines comply with EU5 emissions standards, with both 1.6 CR TDI units emitting less than 110g/km CO2.

Both Fabia and Roomster are available in S, SE and Scout specifications, while the Fabia line up also features Elegance trim level.

Fabia hatchback prices - all prices shown with 1st April Road Fund Licence inclusive.
