Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo breaks cover
Skoda has introduced its highly-anticipated Fabia Monte Carlo hatchback on February 15. The car is the latest fourth-generation model in the Fabia range. The sporty exterior with black body details gives the new hatchback a dynamic appearance. Skoda has rolled out four different powertrains for the Fabia Monte Carlo hatchback.
The exterior of the new model is sporty and athletic thanks to the black radiator grille, wing mirrors and rear diffuser. The spoiler lip on the front apron also gets a black finish adding to the dynamic aesthetic. The Skoda lettering at the rear is standard and the automaker informed that customers can also avail the black roof if desired. The Monte Carlo badges adorn the front wings and the car also gets tinted rear and side windows. LED headlights are offered as standard and the car sits on 16-inch black wheels.
The interior of the car boasts height-adjustable sports seats along with a multifunctional sports steering wheel with three spokes and pedal covers in stainless steel. To echo the black body theme, Skoda has maintained the same colour scheme inside as well though with a touch of red along the door handles, roof lining and roof pillars to make it a little vibrant. The armrests on the front doors and the lower part of the dashboard feature a sporty carbon-fibre effect as decorative trim, with contrasting white stitching on the dashboard. The door sills also show off a Fabia logo.
