Now that Getz diesel is lauched and available in showrooms first week of next month, and that with 110ps power, I think there would be a tough competition betwen Fabia and Getz. People who have been waiting for Fabia may consider Getz as another option. It is relally a good move by Hyundai to launch the Getz now that the swift's waiting period is near 6 months and Fabia launch postponed till Jan 2008.

company claimed mileage for that is 35 Km/L !!
Yes its very true, when Logan can give 35, why cant a hatch give It might be giving 35 but not in sane driving practical conditions.

Finally, Fabia is going to be here in Jan/2008; Price tag will be 5-7 lacs.
With ABS, front and side airbags, 6CD changer, climate control and optional sun roof.
All that equipment is to overshawdow the engine which is a 3 pot

fabia looks awful. i saw some 'test' vehicles parked in my neighborhood. interiors are better looking (as expected.)
it will be dead on arrival i guess.

lets see it this way, if the equipment levels, trim levels and feel good factor is there, then a 3-pot is not an issue is it? there is always a traedoff b/w giving a costly engine and lesser luxury and the other way round. btw, skoda's 3-pot engine matches even the latest generation multijets. octy gives 19kmpl in city for that diesel engine. and it has enough power to thrash other cars on the highway. so expect good things with the skoda fabia!

Skoda India Reply my mail today . There are planning to Launch the FABIA in the End of this year.

Dear Pankaj,
Thank you for showing interest in the new Fabia.
As per our plans the new Fabia hatch – based on a new platform, with new engines, with more space and comfort, and renowned ©koda's detail-to-quality – will be launched towards the end of 2007. The car will be highly specified and will bear the same design and engineering hallmark as its European counterpart.
We are yet working on certain aspects of this new project, and thus final dates and price of the new Fabia are to be confirmed. Nevertheless, expect the new Fabia to be priced competitively, and built to standards that customers have come to expect from ©koda cars.
Kindly appreciate that I can not divulge any specific information. I shall keep you informed when we go ahead with the launch of new Fabia.
Hope that you will join our family of ©koda customers.
Regards,
Farzan | Product Planning

GEEK the Octy is not a 3 pot. A 3 pot engine = lots of vibration due to odd cylinders causing uneven weight balancing.
