2011 Skoda Roomster Review

With range Skoda Fabia, Škoda Auto has established a solid foundation for the portfolio of five cars. The roots of urban family are evident everywhere. Bold, elegant lines of its exterior design to the smallest component is an example of Skoda Fabia attention to detail thanks to simple, smart and innovation. And now, in spring 2010, the Skoda Fabia has been completely redesigned with a new face and an increased focus on energy efficiency and comfort. Breadth of his technical innovations go well beyond a simple facelift.



The Škoda Fabia Combi and Roomster Skoda also receive bold new look inside and outside as well as numerous technical changes under the skin. However, although the appearance might have changed the characteristics of this multi-talented pair no. With a luggage capacity of 505 liters with the rear seats and 1,485 liters with the plans, the Skoda Fabia Combi continues to provide the type of boot space beyond what is normally offered in this class. Meanwhile, the Skoda Roomster, with its system Varioflex extremely versatile rear seats, continues to meet the demands of families and individuals as active. Your boot volume can be extended for a minimum of 480 liters to 1810 liters, which makes the Skoda Roomster a champion of the load

New Skoda Fabia RS is also celebrating its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2010 and the first time Skoda Fabia Sport is available in the property. Its combination of a powerful 132 kW (180 hp) engine and low fuel consumption of just 6.4 km itres/100 say as president of the class.

These variants of the Skoda Fabia Skoda Auto offers a range of range of models in the segment of small cars meet almost all customer needs.

The completely redesigned front end features strong horizontal forms that visually lowers the Skoda Fabia despite its size is unchanged. The Fabia looks much healthier now, but does so without compromising comfort. "With this new development has not escaped our attention," describes the development Eckhard Scholz Executive review. The reason for restructuring is in the range of new state of the art engines and turbo-charged often, which will debut in the Škoda Fabia, including a double load unit. Changes in general motor program has become necessary to redesign the front of the Skoda Fabia and therefore the possibility of postponing his face was taken. The bumper and its attachments, fog forms, the hood and the soil surface before - is not shared in recent Skoda Fabia.

The new grille and headlight shape in three dimensions to define the look of the new Skoda Fabia, emphasizes the horizontal lines the width of the front. "The proportions seem much more relaxed," explains lead designer of Skoda, Jozef Kaban. Her new face is stronger and more dynamic but also more elegant and mature, he now appeals on an emotional level.

Despite its redesign, the virtues Skoda Fabia existing were not forgotten. The surface of the visor-like window that wraps around the cabin has always been a central part of the Skoda Fabia, and the rest. Possibility of an additional roof paint was observed.

Thanks to the new headlights on the front fenders back, side profile is long, while the Skoda Fabia is elegant taillights Škoda have C-shaped graph All these features ensure that the new Fabia goes on to illustrate the brand.

New aluminum alloy wheels and models as well as new Rally colors green, aqua blue Pacific blue finish with the renovation of the little Skoda. The hatchback version of the Skoda Fabia is now also available with roof rails for the first time. The lightweight construction and attention to detail to maintain their weight of only two kilograms.

Inside, the cabin strengthened by new materials and visual sophistication. Chrome inserts for ventilation, frame shift lever and handbrake button to broadcast high quality Skoda Fabia. The new three-and four-spoke leather-wrapped is optional and controls with multi-function sound systems and telephone. Attractive, Breathable seat pad and updated controls Climatronic give the new Škoda Fabia feel of a car with a much higher class.

driver information display has also been redesigned, the central screen now has a gear shift indicator, which contributes significantly to higher fuel economy. On versions with the DSG gearbox selected speed is displayed while the constant display of outdoor temperature on the central screen is an important safety feature. cruise control and warnings reduced speed limit is the maximum speed allowed in the country with speed limits on highways and on vehicles with speed restrictions because of the snow.

The monochrome previous boom has graphics-based navigation system of the Skoda Fabia has now been replaced by Amundsen advanced system large Škoda. It is equipped with a touchscreen than five inches, SD card reader and a connection to external memory devices. Another mobile device interface (MDI) for use with iPod, Aux, USB and mini USB are also available and located in the glove compartment. This replaces the previous CD-changer.

GSM preparation is also new. The system is capable of maintaining two different Bluetooth connections at the same time through streaming audio. This means you can phone through the handsfree device while listening to music from an external source added. The two connections can be operated via buttons on the steering wheel, leather-wrapped multifunction option. The voice command is also activated by a button on the multifunction steering wheel wrapped in leather or GSM II for Comfort.

New Skoda Fabia has been improved engine range is the key to any innovation. A total of seven petrol and three diesel engines are available. Capacities range from 44 kW (60 hp) and 132 kW (180 hp) and petrol engines, while diesel units provide between 55 kW (75 hp) 77 kW (105 hp). All engines meet the emissions standards of Euro 5 offer good fuel economy and CO2 emissions and then very low. All cars are manual transmission gear indicator to promote fuel-efficient driving. Place the arrow on the screen of the dashboard when you propose to shift gears to maintain the most efficient range of engine speeds.

As elsewhere in the Škoda family, is the engine range is determined by the arts cuts. Significantly reduces the ability completed precision fuel injection turbo-charging or double-charging and direct high for the optimal combination of performance and energy efficiency. Turbo-charging increases the levels of couples, particularly in gasoline engines, while the traction is available from very low revs with conventional, naturally aspirated engines. The unity of the supreme power in the range of Skoda Fabia is the gasoline engine with four cylinders in the Skoda Fabia RS. Despite its capacity in just the double payment by a 1.4 liter turbocharger with wastegate and a movable mechanical compressor ensures that the power is 132 kW (180 hp) while peak torque is an equally impressive 250 Nm from 2,000 rpm throughout 4500 rpm. Despite muscle performance, combined consumption of just 6.4 l/100km, while CO2 emissions are just 148 g / km.

But the performance was not the sole objective of development. Compatibility with the environment, noise levels and therefore performance engines set new standards in the Skoda Fabia. When connected with the seven-speed DSG direct optimized - the new 1.2 TSI engine 77 kW (105 hp) offers exceptionally low operating costs. The fuel consumption of only 5.3 liters of gasoline per 100 km (53.3 mpg) and CO2 emissions of just 124 g / km are exceptional in their level of performance. The ITS 1.2 is available in two performance levels - 63 kW (86 hp) and 77 kW (105 hp). Both are combined with a five-speed manual transmission, smooth as standard.

As the engine improvements and reduction of friction and the adoption of lightweight construction also increase efficiency. For the 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine with a new lighter crankshaft was developed, which is 1.7 kg lighter than its predecessor. Also provides for production: the whole cast is a kilogram lighter than before and there is less waste production.

Diesel engines offer a range of services from 55 kW (75 hp) to 77 kW (105 hp), with capacities from 1.2 to 1.6 liters. All are equipped with diesel particulate filter and pressure injection through a broadband system by common-rail. With an injection pressure of 1,600 bar is reached, and fast response piezo injectors that allows up to five injections per cycle, the refinement of the engine has been improved significantly and there is a drastic reduction of fuel consumption and emissions exhaust. Additional cleaning of exhaust gases is achieved by an oxidation catalyst and the recirculation of exhaust gases in all versions of the standard diesel Skoda Fabia.

The development of the region was to reduce the noise level of two three-cylinder petrol 1.2 HTP. Instead of the normal chain of cam sleeve-type, a toothed chain was chosen by the three parties to the roll part of the flexibility of the chain and gears in silence. This creates a significant reduction in turnover, in particular the intersection has three cylinders, especially in the higher revs, which were previously considered objectionable. The noise levels at all engine speeds, the most common between 1600 and 3400 rpm is also clearly reduced.

The range of engines for the new Skoda Fabia:

HTP/44 1.2 kW (60 hp) - EU: 5 (no attributes)

1.2 12V HTP/51 kW (70 hp) - EU 5/EU2

16V/63 1.4 kW (86 hp) - the EU-5

TSI/63 1.2 kW (86 hp) - EU 5

TSI/77 1.2 kW (105 hp) - EU 5

16V/77 1.6 kW (105 hp) - The European Union 4/EU 2

16V/77 1.6 kW (105 hp) (A) - EU 4/EU 2

TSI/132 1.4 kW (180 hp) - EU 5 RS

1.2 TDI CR DPF/55 kW (75 hp) - EU 5/EU 4

1.6 TDI CR DPF/66 kW (90 hp) - EU 5

1.6 TDI CR DPF/77 kW (105 hp) - EU 5

A number of security systems to ensure the safety of all occupants of the Skoda Fabia and other users. Four airbags protect occupants in each Skoda Fabia, while the other two options are available. ABS with Brake Assist is also standard equipment and, in many markets, ESP, which now includes a tire pressure warning assistant or a hill, is also equipped.

The new projector system is designed to provide glare-free lighting and reflector off, or if the headlamp units are installed. with energy saving lamps is integrated into the new dual-chamber, about half the power consumption. This technique also allows better illumination of the road in the fog.

In emergency braking situations - 7 m/s2 over 60 km / h - the brake lights or hazard lights flashing at a frequency of 3 Hz to warn following traffic. If after the emergency brake, the speed is below 10 km / h, and the slowdown is less than 2.5 m/s2, the emergency lights go with your normal cycle (1.25 Hz) to alert The following drivers.

To increase security, Skoda Fabia windows can be controlled by the remote key. This can close the windows when you leave your car or open a window from a distance to cool the interior when parked in the sun.

In any event, the anti-theft system in the new Fabia has become even stronger. A new generation immobilizer protects the new Skoda Fabia more effectively against theft.

Mechanically, the largest power brake makes the new Skoda Fabia react during braking, thanks to the larger cylinder. This allows for faster and especially more likely to lag behind.

With finely tuned ride, four-wheel independent suspension - MacPherson struts and triangulations and a torsion beam rear - and an excellent impact resistance of the body Skoda Fabia offers more comprehensive protection and comfort ever.
