I think Skoda will do a Swift pricing on the Fabia, looking at the equipment or the lack of it, no body coloured mirrors, door handles, alloys, music system. Though the good thing is that it has a rear wiper.

Must have assembled it there.

There seems to be a lot difference in the pics posted by tushky and this white fabia. Differences i spotted
1. HeadLight seams to be topnotch in the pic posted by tushky (expensive look)
2. Fog Lamps absent in the white fabia
3. Alloys absent in the white fabia.

The head light seams to look like lamps in amby. They have to hold on to the finish present in the grey fabia....or its going to make the car look bad.

New Indica v3 will have expensive headlamps.. even Xenon headlamps.. then why not fabia?? ok. dont give is foglamps. we can fit foglamps after. but skoda should sell fabia with expensive looking headlamps.

guys..i have been in constant touch with the skoda auto india through email, they have confirmed me that its going to launch by the end of this year and its build quality would be as good as octavia/laura and would have all the safety features and top notch quality in the top model, but are not ready to disclose any further details about pricing,exact launch date and variants.

guys..fabia's build and material quality would be best in the b+ and C+ segment, so it would be priced a higher than swift. i am sure that it would be priced between 5 - 6.5 lacs. diesel would cost the highest..ofcourse.

cars competing with fabia are grand punto and the SRV.
isnt fusion too a competitor for the fabia in that price bracket?
or does it compete with swift and getz even though its expensive?
