• Skoda Fabia Cabrio in the works?

Skoda Fabia is one of the most successful models on the European market. It comes with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines, with power ranging from 58 HP to 103 HP. Now what do you think would happen if Skoda decided to bring forth a convertible version for the popular Fabia? The Czechs are actually really taking this type of modification into consideration, but the fact is, outside of Europe, a convertible model isn’t high on the list of demands and Skoda will have a tough time recuperating their production costs.

Of course, if built, the Skoda Fabia Cabrio would share the same platform with the future Audi A1 Cabrio, making it a cheaper alternative. The convertible version will be offered with a choice of both TDI and FSI engines.

Skoda is expected to make a final decision in the next year. Now, if Volkswagen has plans to produce a Golf Cabrio then some might say that they should go ahead and give the Fabia Cabrio a try. It should prove to be a cool little car in Europe.

Golf cart? Are you serious? That slow? Oh noh, what is the purpose of this anyways? Looks and sounds very funny but am sure that this one is serious. And we have to consider the effort to be made here.

This is exactly the point of the whole Skoda brand. Plain, fairly priced and reliable. If this sounds boring it’s not. I’ve had many cars, cheap and expensive, you name it, but I have to say that the Skoda is the car that impressed me in the most positive way because of the things already mentioned.

not that much appealing as the sedan version.

At 1642mm wide, this car is narrower than the Swift, or the Polo or the Fiesta, or the Corsa, so how can it be blessed with "class leading space"? Is it possible for 2 adult passengers to share the front seats without the driver elbowing the passenger with each gear change?

there is no doubt that it’s frame and wheelbase is reliable as the Audi A1, but i hope it can perform well as the a1.
