The management of the Czech company Skoda decided to revive the release of the hot-hatch Fabia RS. Calling a new generation of this car "charged" will be quite difficult, because in the complete set the car will receive a hybrid power unit.
In addition, we should not expect the appearance of Fabia RS next year: the transition of Skoda models to electric and hybrid technologies will begin in the 2019 year. At the moment, nothing is known about the technical characteristics of the new hatch. Most likely, the subcompact gasoline engine and the electric motor will be included in the power plant, and its total capacity will be HP 200-220. with a turbo engine power 180 HP and a preselective robotic gearbox. Hatchback accelerated to the first “hundred” in 7,3 seconds, and its speed limit reached 225 km / h. The refusal of RS modification in the current generation in Skoda is explained by low sales, but from unofficial sources it became known that it simply could not stand the competition of the more expensive Volkswagen Polo GTI.
In the Skoda model line of our car rental company there is no budget hatch-beka Fabia, but there is a sedan Octavia economy class, available for rent with a driver on very favorable terms.
