The Škoda Fabia

The Fabia is a supermini, the first generation (1999-2006) starts with the 1.2 6v engine Classic. The only trace of non-VW ┼ákoda left in the Fabia is the 1.4 8v “MPI” Engine, which was a modification to ┼ákoda’s own 1.3 engine, and was used in pre-Volkswagen ┼ákodas such as the Estelle and Favorit. In 2005 the Fabia received a facelift, the Sport model was added with the 75hp 1.4 petrol. This engine was quickly dropped for the 1.2 HTP, which was not as powerful but is a much more free revving engine. Again in 2006 the Fabia the 1.4 16v 75 bhp petrol engine was replaced with a more powerful 1.4 16v 79 bhp engine.

The term MPI (Multi-Point Injection) is used by ┼ákoda to differentiate from 16v models and (in the case of the Octavia) FSI engines. The 75 bhp version of the 1.4 16v was only mated to Volkswagens, the 1.4 8v was dropped in 2003 as it failed to meet emissions requirements. Its performance is heavily hampered by its old OHV (Pushrod) design.

Fabia vRS, introduced in 2003, the Fabia vRS, while not the first diesel hot hatch, was the first exclusively diesel hot hatch, having no petrol equivalent. The engine is VW Group’s 1.9 litre Pumpe-D├╝se Turbocharged-Diesel producing 96 kW (129 hp) and 229 ft┬Ělbf (310 Nm) at 1900 rpm. It was named the “Diesel Car of the Year 2003” in the Scottish Car of the Year Awards. Official figures state 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 9.5 seconds, but several motoring magazines and websites have timed this to faster (Autocar: 7.1 seconds, Auto Express: 8.1 seconds, and FastHatchbacks.com: 8.5 seconds). The in gear acceleration times are 50-70 mph in 5.6 seconds, quicker than BMW’s 330i which needs 6.0 seconds. 20-40 mph in 2.4 seconds is as quick as the Lotus Elise 111R. Despite this the Fabia vRS can achieve better than 5.4 l/100 km (45 MPG US).

The second generation (2007-present), petrol engine linup is a mixture of newer engines from the Volkswagen Group and some carry overs from the outgoing model. The base 1.2 remains the same while the higher powered version will have its power output upped to 70 bhp. There is only a single 1.4 litre petrol on this model, producing 85 bhp.

The range topping petrol engine will be the 1.6 16v engine producing 105 bhp. There will be an option to link this engine to a 6 speed tiptronic transmission. Diesel engines consist of the same 70 bhp and 80 bhp 1.4 TDI units from before. The range topping diesel will be a 1.9 TDI producing 105 bhp. It is rumoured that eventually a 1.4 TSI running at 125 bhp will become the range topping petrol and that the next generation vRS will also receive the 1.4 TSI to the tune of 170 bhp.
