Skoda press release :
Škoda Auto is presenting the new Fabia vRS hatch and estate at the
Geneva Motor Show, where it will join the sports-tuned Octavia vRS.
Both Fabia vRS versions are indeed impressive: for the first time ever,
Škoda Auto is using a double-supercharged, four-cylinder petrol engine
providing 180bhp, in an engine of just 1.4 litres.
A sophisticated compressor-and-turbo combination increases the
engine power smoothly and harmonically, and the maximum speed of 140
mph (141 mph in the estate version) and 0-62mph acceleration in just
7.3 seconds in both versions mean a sporty driving experience. With
fuel consumption of 44.1 mpg, the Fabia vRS offers high power and
maximum fuel efficiency as well as excellent environmental parameters.
Both versions boast an attractively designed front bumper and
integrated fog lamps with integrated LED lights that can be fitted with
cornering lights as an option. The vehicle’s unique position in the
Fabia range is underlined by 17" lightweight alloy Gigaro wheels
developed specially for the vRS, red brake callipers, tinted windows, a
new rear bumper with a diffuser and dual exhaust. Depending on the
colour of the body, the roof, roof spoiler and wheels for the Fabia vRS
hatchback will be available in a choice of black, white or silver.
The vehicle’s sports-tuned chassis – with ESP, ABS and ASR – is
designed for powerful dynamic and safe driving performance. To enhance
the driving experience, the new XDS electronic differential improves
the car’s cornering ability. It brakes the inside front wheel
electronically to increase the torque on the outside front wheel.
Accelerating through corners, the resulting torque gives the vRS
impressive agility. A tyre pressure monitor (TMP) and uphill start
assistant are standard, providing greater comfort and safety.
Both the Fabia vRS hatch and estate are fitted with
height-adjustable sports seats with vRS logos on the backrests. A
height- and reach-adjustable, three-spoke leather-wrapped sports
steering wheel has paddles for manual control of the seven-speed DSG
gearbox. The purity of the interior design is underlined by an
Onyx-shaded dashboard and stainless steel pedals with an anti-slip
In connection with the new design of the Fabia vRS, Škoda has also
adapted the design of its rally car, the Fabia Super 2000. Under new
FIA regulations for the Super 2000 category, the vehicle has been
widened to 1,820 mm. To improve the performance of the Fabia Super 2000
rally car, Škoda has also adapted the engine’s air intake and exhaust
