Munich, 26. July 2016 – even in its first edition, the fabia was the exact opposite of funky. A straightforward type just, bells and whistles were never his thing. With the equipment line "monte carlo" skoda tries to loosen up the down-to-earth style a bit, which looks like the combination of a pair of colorful shoes with a dark gray double-breasted suit including a dark gray tie. The fabia combi does not deserve this, as it has won over many buyers with its stylish appearance.
Good use of space
The equipment does not change the basic quality of the car. Like the larger octavia and superb station wagons, the fabia is a car that offers very good use of space. At 4.26 m, it is almost as long as the current vw golf to the millimeter. It offers 380 liters of luggage space, the fabia station wagon 530, if no spare wheel is ordered. But even with this tire, skoda claims 505 liters, surpassing even a current opel astra sports tourer. Clearly, the fabia combi makes a lot out of its limited possibilities. The skoda surpasses the astra in other respects as well. The variable loading floor, which is currently not available for the opel station wagon, always costs an extra 140 euros in the fabia, but can be operated with a flick of the wrist. In addition, the carpet is easy to clean.
It’s also clear that skoda can’t do magic. When it comes to passenger space, it quickly becomes clear that the fabia is a small car, albeit a comparatively coarse one. Long-legged drivers would like a wider adjustment range towards the rear. Since no one can sit in the rearmost position of the front seats in the rear anyway, skoda was able to free up the last few centimeters as well. Even more consequently, a sliding backseat bench solved the problem – it’s a pity that this is generally offered so rarely.
