Exclusive: Skoda denies Fabia RS, confirms Monte Carlo edition image

Skoda will be keeping its word and it will not offer an RS version of the new Fabia generation but this will be gaining a Monte Carlo special edition in the near future.

There have been quite a few months now since Skoda has officially pulled the wraps off the new Fabia generation and the model is currently being offered with a wide range of engines and in two body styles, hatchback and wagon. The sub-compact vehicle will not be receiving an RS variant, as a Skoda representative has confirmed to inautonews.com, but a Fabia Monte Carlo has been confirmed.

“This time we unfortunately do not have plans for Fabia RS. Our customers appreciate high performance cars more in the compact car segment. This is the territory of ŠKODA Octavia RS The new ŠKODA Fabia will be available next to the standard version as a ŠKODA Fabia Monte Carlo derivate. But this time is too early to speak about exact date, when the MC will be launched” said the company’s official.

The 2015 Skoda Fabia starts from 11,790 euros on the Old Continent and for the money you will be getting the Active trim level, packing a 1.-liter unit under its hood, along with 15-inch steel wheels, daytime running lights, 4-speaker sound system, electrically adjustable side mirrors, tire pressure monitor and more. For the current range topping version, the 1.4 TDI, you will have to pay 20,520 euros, which is similar to the previous Fabia RS generation. The Monte Carlo might become even more expensive.
