Next-gen Fabia due next year

Skoda has prepared two special editions of the aging Fabia for the UK market.

The Fabia Reaction is available exclusively as a hatchback with a 1.2-liter 12V engine developing a modest 69 HP (51 kW). Pricing kicks off at 9,690 GBP and you get a three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, air-conditioning, 16-inch black Comet alloy wheels, rear spoiler, black detailing on the grille, mirrors and roof, along with a Meteor Grey paint scheme.

Skoda says by ordering this limited-run model you will save 3,715 GBP since a standard version with this level of equipment costs 13,405 GBP.

As for the Fabia Monte Carlo TECH Estate, it's a follow-up to the hatchback launched earlier this year on the UK market. It can be had with either a 105 HP (77 kW) 1.2 TSI engine or a 105 HP (77 kW) 1.6 TDI CR diesel. It's based on the Monte Carlo model but adds Bluetooth and Amundsen satellite-navigation system.

It can be had in black, white or red, with pricing starting from 12,575 GBP for the gasoline model and from 13,545 GBP for the diesel.

Skoda's chief designer Jozef Kaban mentioned earlier this month the next-gen Fabia will be launched in 2014 and he described it as being a "really good-looking car."
