2010 Skoda Fabia vRS to get 180 HP gasoline engine, debuts next year | Rpmgo.com

The competition in the small hot hatchback market is definitely a tough one, and will become even tougher as a Skoda source revealed that the upcoming Fabia vRS performance model will be a massive step up from the previous generation and offer a 180 HP gasoline engine, borrowed from the Seat Ibiza Cupra, the VAG cousin of the Czech model.

The new Skoda Fabia vRS will appear on the market next year, and will benefit from a more aggressive design, revealing the performance-inclined nature of the vRS as opposed to the regular Skoda Fabia models. The engine will take it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 7 seconds and to an impressive top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph). It will be most likely attached to a seven speed DSG gearbox, with paddles on the back of the steering wheel.

In terms of price, expect the 2010 Skoda Fabia vRS to cost around €17,500 or £16,000 when it will be made released.
