SKODA FABIA Monte Carlo Launches Feb 17
With the launch of this latest Monte Carlo variant, ŠKODA completes its new, fourth-generation FABIA range. The iconic name ŠKODA initially introduced exclusively for the FABIA has symbolised a sporty lifestyle since 2011. It commemorates the brand’s many victories at the legendary rally. The black body details underscore the new FABIA’s dynamic appearance, while the interior is characterised by red accents and carbon-look detailing on the armrests and dashboard. A choice of two engines deliver power outputs of 110 PS and 150 PS.
The sporty Monte Carlo variants have contributed to the FABIA’s success since 2011. They are inspired by the brand’s numerous motorsport victories at the legendary rally and complement the S, SE Comfort, SE L and Colour Edition trims. The powertrain options available for the Monte Carlo variant include a triple-cylinder 1.0-litre engine and a four-cylinder 1.5 TSI, with power outputs of 110 PS and 150 PS respectively.
Dynamic proportions and an emotive design with black detailing
Built on Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 modular platform, the fourth-generation FABIA features more dynamic proportions and a more emotive design. This look is further enhanced by details such as the black ŠKODA grille, model-specific front and rear aprons, a black rear diffuser and black alloy wheels with a diameter of 17 to 18 inches. The 17-inch Procyon alloy wheels are exclusive to the FABIA Monte Carlo.
Sports seats as standard, Virtual Cockpit with a specific, more dynamic background for the layouts
The now larger interior features sports seats with integrated headrests and a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel as standard. The interior is predominantly black, with the decorative dashboard strip, parts of the centre console and door handles providing a touch of red. The armrests on the front doors and the lower part of the dashboard are finished in a carbon-fibre look. The FABIA Monte Carlo can be equipped with all the safety, assistance and comfort features as well as infotainment systems available in the range. The Virtual Cockpit comes as standard and provides a specific, more dynamic background for the layouts.
