Skoda Fabia price now starts at Rs 5.42 lakh, low priced model dropped

Once among the best selling premium hatchbacks in India, the Skoda Fabia seems to have lost its sheen a little bit. Also, the Czech car maker has discontinued the base variant of the Fabia hatchback, probably following low demand as the variant lacks features that are considered to be standard for all cars these days. It seems that the made for India and in India sedan Skoda Rapid has surpassed sales of this hatchback and it is apparent as well that the car maker is aggressively promoting the Rapid rather than the Fabia. The reason is obvious, India identified itself more with the Rapid as it is made for India rather than the Fabia.

The entry level variant was low priced but was the stripped of model and thus it did not sell well. The reason is that those who wish to buy a car like Fabia will prefer luxury, comfort and will seldom prefer a Fabia for the name only or without the features. This is the reason why the Fabia entry level variant was wiped out by the car maker. Also, Fabia is almost five year old in the country the car itself was never a volume puller for the car maker. Possible factors that desisted it from securing the top player Skoda car was that it lacked right pricing, had unrefined and noisy engines but the overall appeal and the Czech premium interiors have mesmerized many and it still is the only car that people prefer for luxury.

In order to take away the pricey image, Skoda launched this entry level version in 2010 but the strategy really could not work well. Now after the trimming, Skoda is available in diesel and petrol variants and the entry level petrol car now has a price tag of Rs 5.42 lakh whereas the Skoda Fabia Ambition Plus diesel is priced at Rs 6.63 lakh.
