Skoda has revealed prices for its Fabia vRS hatchback and estate models which will go on sale in the UK on July 29 priced at £15,700 and £16,495 respectively.
The vRS is powered by a 1.4 TSI 180bhp engine in tandem with a seven-speed DSG transmission, with ESP, HHC (hill hold control) and XDS (electronic differential system).
Acceleration from 0-62mph takes 7.3 seconds, with a top speed of 139mph (140mph for the estate).
The new vRS features 17-inch ‘Gigaro’ alloy wheels, LED daylight running lights, sunset glass and vRS body kit.
Customers can also choose an optional white or black roof with a range of body colours, including the new Rallye Green, inspired by the Škoda Fabia S2000 rally car.
Interior equipment includes vRS sports seats, a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel with radio controls and paddles for changing gear and MDI (multi-device interface) for use with iPods and other mp3 players.
