Skoda shows sporty Fabia vRS at Geneva
Tuesday 09 March 2010
Skoda has introduced a new high-performance version of the Fabia. The vRS has a 1.4 litre petrol engine fitted with both an engine-driven supercharger and an exhaust-driven turbocharger, a combination that is good for some 180 horsepower. That's enough to propel the vRS, in either hatchback or estate form, to 100km/h (62mph) in just 7.3 seconds. VW's second-generation seven-speed DSG gearbox is fitted, and there are a variety of cosmetic tweaks that distinguish the vRS from other Fabias.
The introduction of the vRS coincides with a hard-to-spot facelift for the Fabia range and also for the practical Roomster model which shares its frontal styling.
