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

ESP, HHC (Hill Hold Control) and XDS (Electronic Differential System).

compared to the competition. Where else can you find a 180bhp engine
with DSG, paddles, LED lights and loads of standard kit for £15,700 for
