Skoda Fabia & Skoda Roomster (2010) facelift at Geneva

Wed, 24 Feb 2010

The 2010 versions of the Skoda Fabia and Skoda Roomster will be at Geneva

Skoda are taking the term ‘Facelift’ quite literally with the 2010 Skoda Fabia (and 2010 Skoda Fabia Estate) and the 2010 Skoda Roomster. They’ve grafted on a new nose for both in a facelift for the models which will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

Skoda say that the new nose “…accentuates the cars’ width, with a totally redesigned face that gives both cars a more dynamic look, increasing their road presence.” So there. The facelift comprises of a new radiator grill with a set of wide 3-D headlights. But the big changes are under the skin for 2010.

Both the Fabia and the Roomster get a new set of engines – four petrol and two diesel. Skoda are highlighting in particular the new 1.2 TSI 105bhp petrol engine with twin -clutch seven-speed DSG ‘box which manages 53.3 mpg and sitll rows along quite well. The four-pot 1.2 TSI comes in two flavours – 85 bhp and 105bhp which can be had with a five-speed manual.

We’ve listed the new engine options for both the Skoda Roomster and the Skoda Fabia below. Both cars will be at Geneva, and we’ll take a closer look then.
