Although this would not be the kind of car I would ever want, a brand new car with ABS, ESP, alloys, MP3 socket, central locking, electric windows and 4 airbags for sub-£6000 is amazing! HOT - get scrapping those old bangers!!

Havent voted... but bad deal IMO, and the picture Adidas Addict has posted is misledading as the car you actually get will be a boggo spec model with hub-caps and plastic bits on the outside, powered by a wheezy pathetic 60bhp 1200cc 3-cylinder engine.

If you pay extra for metallic paint this is what you will get:

Ignore the fact its an 07, will be exactly the same as the 09 model this deal is for.

60 bhp lol.
Will it make it up a hill?? :oops:
Not votin either way tho.
I just dont think i could drive a car with 60bhp!
#5
Considering the spec (MP3, aux, rear discs, TPM, ESP etc, it's not that bad. The 3 cylinder 6 valve engine will be fine for pottering about at low speeds - a good city car, but you'd have to really push it for longer journeys, much like the older Corsa's that were 3C, but they were 12v and a bit pokier.

Pretty sure the image posted is not what you'd get, what with the spec being steel wheels instead of alloys pictured. Looks alright though to be fair :)
#6
Skoda/VW are good cars but with the scrappage allowance there will be more deals like this. Still if you want a small car and get easy in/out (high seating position), this is what I would consider if I was looking.

i just bought a 51 plate skoda fabia for a runabout. 70 hp i think. not too bad. the interior quality is the best amongst small cars i must admit.

It's okay in these wee engines, as it's not all about the ponies - they are HTP (high torque performance), but a 1.2 petrol isn't going to be all that torquey (106Nm) anyway! It'd be fine on hills though, even with the modest power. It's a shame you can't get the diesels at these prices.

Changed it for an actual Fabia 1 pic now

I think the spec and engine is perfectly fine for the price, its a run around not a hot hatch.

Review from Auto Express



The Fabia is spacious, solidly constructed, feels grown-up and is comfortable and easy to live with
Skoda Fabia 1
Auto Express Car Reviews
By Oliver Marriage
April 2007

While Skoda's brilliant Octavia hit the headlines for winning our recent Driver Power reliability survey, it was the original Fabia that first set the firm on the comeback trail.

While the new Fabia appears more grown-up, it's not actually that much bigger than the car it replaces.

Not only was it a great supermini (we voted it our Car of the Year in 2000), but it was also a big hit with UK buyers. More than 130,000 have been sold here in the past seven years. So, can the new Fabia prove as successful for the Czech marque by moving the game on another step?

We've already been impressed by the 1.4-litre diesel, which we were first to test in the UK last week. Now we've got our hands on the entry-level 1.2 petrol variant, will we have reason to change our minds?

Not if the styling is anything to go by. No radical thought has gone into the design. But the Roomster-look nose is neat and attractive, and crisp lines hint at a no-nonsense personality.

The most noticeable change from the outgoing car is the introduction of black A and B-pillars. Using a styling touch the firm seems to have borrowed from MINI, the windscreen is given a wraparound appearance and quality feel which the matt plastic mirrors and handles maintain.

While the new Fabia appears more grown-up, it's not actually that much bigger than the car it replaces. It sits on a modified version of the same VW Group platform as before, so the wheelbase remains unchanged, while overall length is up by only 22mm - and it's 4mm narrower. It's not the class's biggest car, but Skoda says no competitor has more interior space.

The 300-litre boot is certainly not matched by any rival, while there is plenty of space for at least two occupants in the rear. Equally pleasing is the driving environment, with good seat and steering column adjustment to ensure comfort at the wheel, even if the chairs lack side support.

What really sets the Skoda apart, though, is the quality of its construction. Higher-spec 2 and 3 models get soft-touch dash plastics, yet this basic 1 version still feels tough. Add the generous amount of cabin space, plus thoughtful dashboard design, and it's hard to believe that this car is on sale for less than £8,000.

And this is before you get to the driving experience. Delivering a mere 59bhp, the new all-aluminium High Torque Performance (HTP) engine isn't the last word in horsepower, but the three-cylinder unit is characterful.

It's also remarkably free from vibra-tion and, while not that quiet, has a slick-shifting five-speed manual gearbox. On the road, the Fabia is solid and capable, with fine motorway manners and decent suspension control. However, the Skoda doesn't offer the sense of excitement or fun of class leaders, so it never really comes alive.

Yet this is a small drawback in a car which is otherwise very competitive and great value. After the success of the Octavia in our Driver Power survey, Skoda's new Fabia is proof that despite the competitive price, drivers don't need to compromise on quality.

Exactly! It's got a better spec than others around the same price for sure. It doesn't mention aircon though ... is this an option perchance?

Well spotted! Skoda = Volkswagen owned (of course), and despite the stigma, it's a better car than people are willing to admit.

Aircon at that price - haha no chance. It would be an optional extra along with metallic paint and floor mats.

The Hyundai i10 has it for less.

edit: but the inclusion of MP3, ESP, aux, rear discs is loopy considering the costs compared to aircon - cracking specs for a small car!

All Hyundais have Aircon I think, but the i10 is next class down from this I think (city car VW FOX etc), smaller. The fabia is basd on the VW Polo (supermini, I guess hyundai i20)

Correct, not really fair to compare the i10 to this car.

I know, but I was merely pointing out that 'budget' smaller classes may have it as standard. I'd never compare a Hyundai to anything made by Europe anyway :lol:

Floor!! Luxury - I assumed there would be no floor or at least big holes so you could stick your legs through and 'paddle'. :p

Only kidding. :thumbsup:

If you look, it says you can apply this to all new Fabias.

MPG on this car? ...

For the price it seems great for a new car, still think you're better off getting a more recent second hand diesel car.
#23
I think less than £6k for a car is a good deal. These are good cars. I own an older Fabia VRS and it's 200 bhp rocks.

Circa 50mpg if you are conservative. In a 1.4 diesel, you'd see around 70mpg if driving like an angel (my gf has a 1.4 HDi 206 that returns over 70mpg)

Diesel is only worth it if you do above average mileage (i.e. more than 10k) otherwise its a waste of time.

60 bhp is more than the original Mini Cooper had.

Not a bad deal as its well built, roomy and has decent residuals, but not that great - £300 more (after £2000 scrappage allowance) will buy a base model Fiat 500 1.2 Pop, which is quicker, more stylish, has better basic spec and holds its value well.

Also the fabia is Sloooooooowwwww! 96 MPH top speed and 0-60 in 16 seconds (officially) but a recent magazine tested it at 17.4 seconds (yawn!). For anyone looking for just a town/city runabout and if space isnt crucial, the VW Fox 1.2 (£4,650 including scrappage allowance) or Toyota Aygo (£5,285) are also worth considering - the Aygo returns over 60mpg!

I have a 1.4HDi 206 too, MPG is awesome, seems rather under publicised too.

Don'r knock Skoda! I got a Skoda Fabia 3 1.4 TDI 57 plate and it's the best car I've had so far and my monthly expenses have halfed since trading in my old Rover 25. Group Insurance 3, £35 tax and the economy is great.

However, i wouldn't recommend going for the Fabia 1 as it's VERY basic - got for Fabia 2 at least.

I'm adding HEAT to this offer as it's great as a first car for a learner or as a very cheap runaround town.

When you open the bonnet and actually look at the engine, it's got VW bages stamped everywhere.

Stole a few Skoda jokes;

[COLOR="Red"]Why do skodas have a rear wash wipe ?

........To remove the flies that crash into them.


What do you call a Skoda with a long radio aerial?

A dodgem!



What do you call a skoda driver who say's he has a speeding ticket ????

A Dreamer.


I had to part with my skoda as it was costing too much,

I was only doing 10 miles to every pair of trainers!!



Whats the difference between a Skoda and a tampon?

The Tampon comes with its own tow rope!
[/COLOR]

Yes things have moved on very much indeed for Skoda. Joking aside these cars are pretty good, would go for the diesel myself. VRS awsome!
#31
0 to 60 in 16 seconds. Don't get into a drag race at the traffic lights with this car! :p
#32
a fiat 500 is again, a smaller car than this - its based on the panda chassis, rather than the punto. you get more for your money, but less actual car.

60bhp will be fine on a car like this. it'll be a bit slow up the hills, but it'll happily keep up with regular traffic all day long. Its worth considering that transits et al normaly only have ~90bhp, and they weigh a huge amount more than this
#33
you would have to pay me to drive that!

The scrappage scheme isn't quite the deal it would seem for many cars:

Skoda also happen to create the most reliable and well put together cars in the VAG group which includes, VW, Seat, Audi so don't be a snob.

Plus those thinking Diesel don't you pay more for the car and more for the fuel which makes the car less economical unless your doing lots of miles like 20k a year. Plus with this engine you could easy get dieselish economy figures.
#36
Argh! People saying they would never buy one because it isn't fast enough for them or cos they wouldn't want a Skoda - fine - but then this deal was never going to be aimed at you, not on here or by Skoda. This is a fantastic deal for older people looking to purchase a new realiable car, or maybe someone who only drives round the city. The spec and reliablilty you get for under £6000 is amazing. How anyone can say it isn't is beyond me....

since trading in my old Rover 25..


It wouldn't need to be very good to improve on that!

I've had my Seat for 12 years now, if the Skodas are as good as the Seats (they seem to be even better) then I'd have no hesitation in buying one.

Has anyone driven one of these "high torque" small engines?
I recently drove a small engined Corsa, which felt quite torquey, but also felt like it had a really heavy flywheel.
Is that how they get the torque?
#38
HTP is just a brand skoda use, its the same old 1.2 3-cylinder used by VW in the Fox/Polo and Seat in the Ibiza. They are OK In town but when you want to go fast (i.e. dual carriageway or motorway) its struggles and gets noisy.

Salamanda

Plus those thinking Diesel don't you pay more for the car and more for the fuel which makes the car less economical unless your doing lots of miles like 20k a year. figures.


Absouletely spot on. I seem to have to explain that to people on a daily basis, diesels simply do not add up if you are doing a low mileage.

I have a 1.4HDi 206 too, MPG is awesome, seems rather under publicised too.


I think it is down to the combined cycles etc - hers does over 70mpg if you are sat at 60 constantly in 5th, but the official figures are always combined/extra urban/urban etc. There should be a category called 'endurance'! My Focus 1.8 diesel (tractor) does above the 'quoted' and has on occasion returned over 65 to the gallon, but more frequently around 55-60.

However, we digress!

People quoting speed :-D Go for a VRs. Quit mocking Skoda, as it's a bit old these days. Most jokes can be re-hashed by changing 'Skoda' to any other make that one particular person dislikes.

Diesel becomes more economical on the purse over 14k miles in most cases, depending on what you get. Diesel engines are built to a higher tolerance and tend to have better lifespans, so the benefit there is seen over a longer period of time. My experience is that they have cheaper insurance too, probably more so due to being under 25. Tax tends to be peanuts too!

But people buying these cars are going to be popping to the shops for teabags and milk. I can't imagine seeing a Fabia 1.2 tear-arsing about through the Maccy D's car parks!

Exactly, people blindly say 'Get a diesel' but when you do the sums petrol is by far the cheaper option for regular mileage drivers, I only do 8000 miles a year on average so would be wasting money by choosing a diesel.
