Skoda Fabia – The mini tank October 5, 2013

Posted by Midhun in None.

Skoda Fabia has proved to be a wonderful car from the time it was bought. It was got after a research of two months about all hatchbacks in the country in the most authoritative site for cars in the country – Team BHP. There have been many pros and cons discussed about the car. But the feeling when you get into the car and drive is what turns you on ๐Ÿ™‚

What I like :

  • The doors open wide and in a three stage manner ( I am told this is typical of all European cars). Love it as it stops the door from hitting against a wall or fence if you parked the car pretty near to it.
  • Adjustable steering height and depth – I also have it fully out and up. But I think it is cool
  • Awesome comfortable seats – they warp you around nicely unlike the ones in Swift which feel pretty thin and lifeless
  • MID – displays all the required info in front of you. The one that mostly use is the instantaneous fuel consumption of the car.
  • The key – it seems nothing else would fit other than the keys provided by Skoda as the lock generates a random number when the key is pulled off. Pretty secure.. Huh ? ๐Ÿ™‚
  • The same goes with the music system. If it has been stolen out of the car, it would work in no other car – not even another Skoda Fabia
  • The golf ball shaped gear knob and the smooth gear shift – there is no other hatchback which does gear shifting better ๐Ÿ˜€
  • The sturdiness of the car – You can always rely on it. Hence it is called the “Mini Tank”
  • Elegenceย  and thoughtfulness oozes out of every part of the car

What I do not like :

  • The engine is not upto the mark ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I knew this when I was buying the car. But being bought for city driving, this was brushed off. Now when I hit the highways, I do feel the urge for more power. Then too, it is not so very bad. I touch the maximum of 155 kmph ๐Ÿ™‚
