Andrew Chesterton road tests and reviews the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo with specs, fuel consumption and verdict. Read Andrew's full review here: http://carsgui.de/2bPuvTm See more at the CarsGuide.com.au Fabia hub: http://carsgui.de/2coupDu Check out other hatchbacks here: http://carsgui.de/1T0SuNu - - - - - - - - - - When you think of brands with a proud motorsport history, Skoda probably isn't the first that springs to mind. But the folks at the Volkswagen Group would like the change that. With this, the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo, named for one of the world's most iconic rally races, the Rally Monte Carlo. But if you're expecting a race-spec pocket rocket, prepare to be a little disappointed. The Fabia Monte Carlo joins the existing Fabia range, which was updated last year. It scores the same engine as the current top-spec model, producing an unchanged 81kW and 175Nm from its 1.2-litre turbocharged engine. That power is channelled through a seven-speed DSG gearbox and sent to the Fabia's front wheels. It's enough to push the Fabia to 100km/h in a not-very-rally 9.4secs, or 9.6secs if you opt for the wagon, which is being offered in the Monte Carlo for the first time. Still, not exactly sporty. What do you get, then? The good people at Skoda have fitted the Monte Carlo with a sportier suspension tune than the one found in the rest of the range, and it's been designed to evoke the rally cars of old. So you get this new black grille frame, side skirts, spoiler and rear diffuser, along with 17-inch black alloys. Inside, you get this cool panoramic sunroof, Apple Car Play or Android Auto and a standard rear-view camera. The camera joins an impressive suite of standard safety gear, including autonomous braking across the range. You'll also get cruise control, and you can option an adaptive system, too. As always with Skoda, practicality is key. The wagon body shape carries a $1,150 premium over the hatch. Ticking that box will give you 505 litres of space with the rear seats up, and an impressive 1370 litres with the seats folded flat. Hot hatch it is not, but the Skoda Monte Carlo is a fun, well-equipped and good looking, and in wagon form, it offers a lot more practicality than anyone else in the city car segment.

The infotainment building blocks come from the second generation of the Group’s Modular Infotainment Matrix, offering state-of-the-art functions, interfaces and equipped with capacitive touch displays. The top systems Columbus and Amundsen have a Wi-Fi hotspot. An optional LTE module is available for the Columbus system. The Internet connection is based on today’s fastest mobile radio standard, with which passengers can surf and access email freely with their phones and tablets. The new mobile online services ŠKODA Connect are divided into two categories: Infotainment online services are used for information and navigation; the CareConnect services for assistance in case of breakdowns and emergencies. The Emergency Call button, which will be part of the standard equipment in Europe from 2018, is now available as an optional CareConnect service. Additional online services can be accessed via the ŠKODA Connect app. These can be used to remotely check, configure and find the parking place of your car using a smartphone. The intelligent capability of pairing a car with a smartphone has reached a new level in the ŠKODA KAROQ. The SmartLink+ platform, compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLinkTM, is available as an option for the basic infotainment system Swing. SmartLink+ comes as standard with higher infotainment systems. The Phonebox with inductive charging couples the smartphone to the roof antenna and simultaneously charges it wirelessly. Reliable helpers: driver assistance systems The ŠKODA KAROQ offers a comprehensive range of driver assistance systems. New comfort systems include Park Assist, Lane Assist and Traffic Jam Assist. Blind Spot Detect, Front Assist with predictive pedestrian protection and Emergency Assist serve to increase safety. Additional driver assistance systems are available for the ŠKODA KAROQ to keep the car at a safe distance from the car ahead, to make it easier for the driver to change and keep in lane, to point out important traffic signs, and to assist when parking. The freely programmable digital instrument panel is available for the first time in a ŠKODA. In the ŠKODA KAROQ, the cockpit displays can be set to the driver’s individual preferences. Full-LED headlights with clear-lens optics are available as an option for the ŠKODA KAROQ from the Ambition trim level upwards. In the interior, new LED ambient lighting in the decorative door trims and the dashboard creates a pleasant atmosphere, which can be set to one of ten colours. It is clear from the exterior shape, modified lines and larger dimensions that this is a completely new vehicle. The ŠKODA KAROQ is a sports utility vehicle with character: The emotive and dynamic design with numerous crystalline elements characterises ŠKODA’s new SUV design language. The compact SUV measures 4,382 mm in length, is 1,841 mm wide, and 1,605 mm high. The increase in size benefits the passengers. The kneeroom is 69 mm. The long wheelbase of 2,638 mm (all-wheel version: 2,630 mm) gives the ŠKODA KAROQ a comfortable stance on the road and provides an indication of the generously proportioned interior. The ŠKODA brand stands for an exceptional package. This also applies to the new KAROQ. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 521 l with the rear seats in place. With the rear seats folded down, the volume increases to 1,630 l. The VarioFlex system consists of three separate seats, which can be individually adjusted and the seats can also be completely removed – and the SUV is then converted into a van with a maximum load capacity of 1,810 liters.

New design highlights inside and out
Front and rear design updates produce a remarkably high-class appearance, while headlights and front fog lights with new outlines and state-of-the-art lighting technology also freshen up the look of the car. LED headlights and LED rear lights are now being offered for the Škoda Fabia for the first time. The choice of alloy wheels has been extended too, including the addition of 18-inch wheels for the hatchback. The redesigned instrument cluster, new trim strips for the dashboard and two-tone finishes for the seats help to give the interior a more noble feel.
Economical and lively petrol engines
The line-up of engines for the Škoda Fabia will consist of four petrol drivetrains, each with three cylinders and a capacity of 1.0 litre, whose performance is as eager as it is efficient. The MPI engines feature indirect injection and produce outputs of 44 kW (60 hp) and 55 kW (75 hp) respectively. The two TSI drivetrains are both packed with advanced engineering, including turbocharging and direct petrol injection, enabling them to generate 70 kW (95 hp) and 81 kW (110 hp). Both TSI engines are fitted with gasoline particulate filter. The most powerful of the quartet of engines can be matched with a seven-speed DSG gearbox as an option.
By concentrating on sophisticated petrol engines for its drivetrain portfolio, Škoda is paying careful consideration to the requirements of the target groups in the small car segment. Boasting further improved economy and exceptional emissions performance, the state-of-the-art three-cylinder power units are on a par with frugal diesel engines for fuel efficiency.
New driver assistance systems for increased safety and convenience
By expanding the choice of driver assistance systems, Škoda AUTO has once again transferred advanced technology from higher vehicle classes to the small car segment. The new Blind Spot Detection feature alerts the driver to the presence of vehicles in the blind spot or approaching rapidly from behind when driving on multi-lane highways. The Rear Traffic Alert system monitors what is going on behind the vehicle and warns of a risk of collision when reversing. Another newly available feature is Light Assist, which automatically switches to low beam as soon as the system detects oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead.
Infotainment system 'Swing' now with 6.5-inch display and Škoda Connect
The infotainment system 'Swing' now offers a 6.5-inch display and also allows drivers to use the full range of mobile online services from Škoda Connect. When equipped with the 'Amundsen ' navigation system, the Škoda Fabia will also now offer the Online Traffic Information service with real-time information on traffic holdups. Meanwhile, innovative SmartLink+ technology makes it possible to enjoy all the benefits of the Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLinkTM and SmartGate standards.
Even greater variety of 'Simply Clever' features
The brand's signature characteristics that set the Škoda Fabia apart in the small car segment include a wealth of practical touches designed to increase comfort and functionality in day-to-day use. An even greater number of these 'Simply Clever' features is now available. The ice scraper concealed in the fuel filler flap now incorporates, as a new function, a gauge for measuring the tyre tread depth. The car can also be equipped with USB ports for the rear-seat passengers for added comfort. Customers can also opt for a double-sided boot mat. The side compartment in the boot of the Škoda Fabia Combi also features a portable LED flashlight.
The Škoda Fabia is embarking on the next chapter of its success story with wide-ranging enhancements in terms of both design and technology. The popular small car made by the Czech carmaker will now boast even greater appeal thanks to restyled front and rear sections, the introduction of LED head and rear lights, as well as a refined interior. Lively and efficient 1.0 gasoline engines, as well as additional assistance systems underline the sophisticated character of the Škoda Fabia. The revised model is being unveiled at the International Motor Show 2018 in Geneva. The market launch is in the second half of 2018.
