Two Fabia special editions to raise your temperature

The Reaction is one of the two special edition models.

SUMMER time and the livin’ is easy… especially if you want to buy a Skoda Fabia.

The Czech carmaker is celebrating summer with two new additions to the Fabia range, which will hit dealer showrooms this month.

The Fabia Reaction and Monte Carlo Tech Estate variants have been packed with high levels of equipment and offer great value.

For instance, the new Fabia Reaction is equipped with all the essential features needed to look and stay cool this summer and joins the range with an introductory price of just £9,690 – a £3,715 less than the normal price of £13,405.

Despite its highly affordable price tag, the Reaction features an extensive equipment list. Air-conditioning and a three-spoke leather steering wheel are fitted as standard, while the exterior benefits from a unique combination of 16-inch black Comet alloys, rear spoiler, black detailing on the roof, mirrors and grille, and Sunset glass. Combined with the Meteor Grey paintwork, the Fabia Reaction has serious head-turning ability.

The Reaction is fitted with a 1.2 12V 69PS engine and is only available in hatch form.

The new Monte Carlo Tech Estate follows on from the popular hatch version launched earlier this year. Available with a choice of two advanced engines — 1.2 TSI 105PS or 1.6 TDI CR 105PS — the Tech is based on the Monte Carlo model, but adds Amundsen sat-nav and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.

Thanks to a striking design that includes gloss black wheel arches and grille, the Monte Carlo Tech Estate combines sporty looks with exceptional practicality.

Available with three colour options, red, white and black, the 1.2 TSI 105PS petrol model is priced from £12,575, while the 1.6 TDI CR 105PS starts from £13,545.

Commenting on the arrival of the new models, Alasdair Stewart, Skoda  UK brand director said: “We’re always looking at ways of delivering better value to our customers, and these two new additions to the Fabia range do just that. We’re confident that buyers will appreciate the high equipment levels and stylish design that both the Reaction and Monte Carlo Tech offer.”

The Fabia Reaction and Monte Carlo Tech Estate are available for customer order now. With limited stocks available at Skoda retailers across the UK, buyers will need fast reactions to secure one.
