New Skoda Fabia and Roomster prices announcedNew prices reflect revised engines and cosmetics
10 March 2010
Updated versions of the Skoda Fabia and Skoda Roomster were unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, and Skoda has today announced revised prices for both models.
New looks, new engines
The revised Skoda Fabia and Skoda Roomster feature high-tech new engine choices, and styling changes designed to reflect the rest of the Skoda model range.
The visual difference is most striking from the front, where both cars feature wider headlights, redesigned radiator grille and stronger crease lines in the bonnet, chiefly influenced by the latest Skoda Superb.
Under the bonnet, there's a new line up of four petrol engines and two turbodiesels offering between 60bhp and 106bhp. The petrol highlight is the 1.2-litre TSI turbo that already features in the Skoda Yeti and other Volkswagen Group products. It offers either 85bhp or 105bhp, with respective CO2 emissions as low as 121g/km and 124g/km in the (134g/km Roomster).
A twin-clutch DSG automatic transmission is offered on the 105bhp petrol version, with a five-speed manual otherwise standard.
The diesels are both 1.6-litre CR TDI units - the CR standing for Common Rail injection, better for efficiency, performance and refinement - and both emit 109g/km in the Fabia (124g/km Roomster).
Both revised Fabia and Roomster models are available in S, SE and Scout specification - although the Fabia also comes in more luxurious Elegance trim.
start at £9,330 on the road for the Fabia 1.2-litre 60bhp non-turbo petrol S, rising to £14,895 1.6 CR TDI 105 diesel Estate in Elegance trim.
The Roomster starts at £11,260 for the 1.2 70bhp S, rising to £15,380 for the 1.6 CR TDI 105bhp Scout.
All prices quoted include the new first-year ‘showroom’ road tax rate.
