Skoda Car Loan Australia Volkswagen Car Loan Australia

Anticipated to retail at under $20 000 on-road, driveaway-no-more-to-pay, Skoda has given its Fabia an update for the 2017 model year, with the revised model showing-off a powerful, new 1.0 litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. Here is 1800Approved's top 3 reasons to look at a new Skoda Fabia and get some of the great qualities of a Volkswagen at a more competitive price tag;

 

1. Powerful, reliable and cheap to run - The new Skoda Fabia's 1.0 litre engine is the same TSI unit used by others in the Volkswagen Group family.

The new engine replaces the current 1.2 litre four-cylinder engine but continues to provides a choice of two power outputs - 70kW/160Nm or 81kW/200Nm - front wheel drive.

 

The 70kW unit can propel the Fabia to 100km/h in 10.6 seconds (0.3 seconds quicker than before), with a top speed of 185km/h.

The 81kW unit with a top speed of 196km/h, is a full 1.1 seconds faster to 100km/h in 9.5 seconds.

The smaller capacity brings improvements to both emissions and fuel consumption, both options performing in the 4.3-4.5 litre per 100km range on a consistent basis.

 

2. Skoda’s Connect Services, including Infotainment Online and Care Connect brings real-time info on congestion, nearby facilities (such as service stations), parking and emergency services or breakdown connectivity. Skoda even provides potential owners with a handy umbrella, stowed under the front seats, and an ice scraper stored on the fuel door (for those of you in our chilly southern states). Its an obvious European Car !

 

3. Safety features include Front Assist with autonomous emergency braking at city speeds, adaptive cruise control, fatigue detection, tyre pressure monitoring and Skoda’s multi-collision braking system.

 

The 2017 Skoda Fabia is expected to arrive in Australia around the middle of the year. Exact Australian specifications for 2017 are still to be finalised.
