This seems to be a good deal if it comes under 10 lakhs OTR.
Hope that they don't spoil the party by announcing just the 1.2L Fabia engines to go with this.

Looking eagerly to a test drive report from GTO.

Oh my ! This is going to be a heart breaker if Skoda prices the Scout around 7 lac. Esp cos I recently added the Fabia 1.6 to my garage and am still in my honeymoon days with 'her'.

I read a statement on one of the links posted elsewhere on this thread saying (or speculating) that the 1.6 is a fuel guzzler. I just wanted to share my personal experience in comparison with a friend's 1.2 MPI. My 1.6 gives about 11kpl (tank 2 tank) in the city and has never let me down below 9kmpl in tight traffic with the AC on. While the 1.2 MPI gives about 11-12kmpl in city with similar driving conditions.

Now, here's the best part. The 1.2MPI gives about 15kmpl and the 1.6 returns the same if not more!

That's definitely justice, and I'm loving it! Oops.. unless you'd like to drive pedal-to-metal method.. Which I haven't yet tried and waiting eagerly to cross the 5000 mark to start opening up..

Drive on.. Safe.

Skoda also need to look the proper A.S.S. and service parts. The cost of some normal stuff is too high. Last time we was about to fix a deal with FABIA but hearing some parts cost we just backed up. A pair of Fog lamp cost 16K :(

the latest Autocar says that the Fabia Scout is expected in mid 2012. SO Skoda look like they are trying to re-create some magic in the segment vacated by Fiat Adventure/ Weekend etc.
Pricing is speculated at 6-7 lacs ex showroom. apparently there wont be any change from the existing Fabia except for higher ground clearance and some cosmetic "rough road" cladding and appearance cues.

Yummy. Some other sketches showed just a Fabia with claddings. This one looks like a bit stretched. The rear quarter glass is outside of the rear door. If only they offer 4x4 as an option !!! (Shankar Balan would know why I am sighing )
