Because after Seat presented the new Ibiza on the basis of the new MQB A0 platform, it is expected that the cousins Volkswagen Polo and Skoda Fabia also pass the hand to the new generation. Meanwhile, the Fabia sees its four-cylinder 1.2l TSI engine replaced by the new 1.01 TSI TSI.
It will then be joined by a Performance version of 245 hp and equipped with an electronically controlled self-locking differential that benefits some of the group’s cousins such as Golf Gti Performance or the Seat Leon Cupra.
All engines are available in sedan, or break Combi in manual or DSG six-speed. The diesel also adds a version with all-wheel drive, mounted automatically with the DSG.
The high-end model of the Skoda Octavia is equipped with a 245hp four-cylinder TSI gasoline engine, 11.5 hp more than its predecessor could offer. The maximum torque of 370 Nm is obtained between 1,600 and 4,300 rpm. There is a choice of six-speed manual transmission or, for the first time on an Octavia RS, a dual-clutch transmission with 7 speeds. The Sedan reached 100 km / h in 6.6 seconds (Combi in 6.7 seconds) and a top speed of 250 km / h.
