If FAbia wants good market share , it has to be priced below the City

Was just wondering abt the rear leg room in the Fabia , if the Octy was so tight at the rear , how would the Fabia be ??

Its quite cramped. Can't hold a candle to the NHC in that dept. So the USP of Fabia has got to be the build quality & the diesel engine which I hope they'll bring.

I have a feeling that since the Octy has abt 90 horses in the diesel , the Fabia diesel will put out abt 75-80 max , also the Fabia weighs a little more than the Accent.

Dont u ppl think that the Accent CRDI is justified as a better buy since the FAbia will also suffer heavily on the rear leg room.

Fabia in comparision will have just better build quality , but the the build quality of the Accent aint that bad for the average Indian.

Guys Skoda is a very strong car

Instance : My cousins L&K had an accident with an ikon .

Ikon hit skoda at rear end.

Ikon = hood is bent and front end went half inside, The guy whos drivin is taken to hospital in an ambulance. dont know how much it cost for repairs

Skoda = back sensors came out of the bumper, wo small scratches on the bumper, no paint damage. damn the car is like a rock. paid 1500rs got covered under insurance

I think evry penny of that 16lakhs is real worth

heehh

Hi,

I donít expect the Fabia vRS to be priced at 7-8 rather in the 9-10.5 bracket and as for taking on the city the 7-8 lakh fabia will make honda sweat for sure.

Regards,
Satyam.
