Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The car is bestowed with equipment which makes it €2,250 (around Rs. 1.62 lakhs) cheaper than a standard model with similar features. The value for money special edition will have a limited production run of 1,000 units.
While there is no change to the external appearance of the vehicle, there are some notable changes under the skin. The car gets sporty suspension with stiffer dampers settings. The ride height has also been lowered, immediately putting the Indian market out of consideration.
The hatchback, which was recently updated with Skoda’s new logo and badges gets extra add-ons like any other special editions. 17″ alloy wheels and tinted rear windows and windshield come as a part of the special edition package.
Other standard features of the Skoda Fabia Young Spirit special edition include air conditioning, power windows, central locking, fog lights with integrated daytime running lights and a Swing audio system. The special edition Fabia is available in three shades namely Sea Blue, Cost-ocean Blue and Green Pistaccio.
The car is powered by the 1.2 litre TSI turbo petrol engine which develops 86 PS of power. The engine has an impressive fuel economy of 19.23 kmpl in their driving cycle.
The Fabia Cool Young Spirit is priced at €15,429 (around Rs. 11.14 lakhs). There is little being done by Skoda India to pump up the sales of the slow selling premium hatchback. It would help if Skoda introduces such special editions in India.
