Default Is this true ? | Fabia at 4.54 L

BHP'ians,

I got to see this Ad from a website named Frodoe.com

Check this out! I have not seen Skoda at such a price.

Fabia was always starting around that price range only. No surprises here.

Thats the ex-showroom price, without considering octroi, for the base (Active) model.

Add around 50k to get it OTR.

Could it be stock clearing to make way for the refreshed Fabia that's being talked about in this here?

SKoda introduced discounts of around Rs 50,000 on its petrol versions to clear the stocks before the BS4 came

This news is the same. Look at today's Hindu. Its the same add. The same discounts 60K claimed in bold. But in fine print it says savings up to 50K!

They also claim its BSIV compliant and mention it in bold.
Still may be worth a wait for the refreshed Fabia if they come with TSI !

I am also in a similar car hunt. I too check the Skoda Fabia. The On road price is coming to Rs . 6.10L for Classic in Bangalore.

I feel its once of the best cars in the segment and some of the features in Fabia are not available in other cars.

I feel only Fiat Punto and VW Polo can complete with Fabia.

Checked out the Ford Titanium, but quality wise it doesn't come near Fabia.

Have evaluated a lot of models like Chevrolet Beat, Hyundai i10, Maruti Ritz, Maruti Swift, Tata Indica Vista Aura but none of them come upto Fabia.

I am still in two minds on taking the Fabia. The 50K + Corporate discount had made me to consider this model.

Good things of Fabia is its loaded with safety features like Front & Rear impact beams beams, crumple zone, side impact beams, airbags, Sensor power windows, etc and that's all for Rs 6.1 Lakhs.

Interior quality is also very good and has rear AC vent also.

Only worry is the Service, in Bangalore the new Vinayaka Skoda dealer seems to be good.

And at last it all depends on how you handle the car. The sales person at the dealership was saying some drive the Fabia like Ferrari in bad roads and city traffic. He was saying if the car is driven with care nothing can happen even after 10 years also.

I got a service quote of 8K from the dealer for 1st service, Just in 3 months the cost has more than doubled.

I got the spare Price and Service charge details from Skoda today so was comparing the rates with Punto and i20.
My car hunt is still going on.


Skoda Fabia quality and safety features are very good. Only thing nagging is the rates and Service deliveries.

The FABIA is something you buy if you know you are not going to change the car for maybe 10 years. Reason - The car depreciates like a stone in water, its going to be painfull selling off an almost brand new car after two years for half the price.

I'll go for the FABIA only if the vision is long term. I think parts can be managed, SKODAs have become pretty common fare now

I am looking at a 5 + year term. So need a good quality car which can come 5/6 years atleast.

Compared to the Punto some of the parts looked a bit expensive but again the quality is different. So need to shell out some extra bucks.

We have several reviews of the Fabia on the forum. Go check it out to get an idea of long term experience.

By the way, even the current Fabia diesel should stopped right?
Because of BSIV reasons.

If that is true, we should see a CRDI even in Fabia?
What is happening on that front?
