Default Skoda fabia : Spy pics

last week, i spotted a Blue Skoda fabia with MH registration on kanakpura road, took a couple of pics from the rear. over took him and wanted to take pics of the front, the driver on seeing me trying to take pics, was in a hurry to overtake me.. i only managed to take a bad photo of the grill .. the bagde and name was masked with tape. it looked a little bigger than the swift. couldnt get good sight of interiors.

I have been waiting for this car for 2 years i think so when it was first said to be heading for india hope it comes soon and heard that its going to have a octavia 1.9tdi engine (de tuned i think so)
hope the company doesn't mess the pricing up

I dont see the Fabia being priced below 6.5 lakhs and I really dont think the Indian market is ready for a hatch costing that much.

You are right. People can buy a fully loaded Palio with similar build quality at a much lower price. And the dealer network of Skoda is not any better than Fiat - Tata, I think.
