The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is the new sporty model at the top of the Fabia's range, and has been revealed at the 2015 Geneva motor show.

The Monte Carlo offers a selection of visual upgrades and optional sports suspension, but does not come with any enhancements to the engine line-up. It is set to be the sportiest model in the Fabia range, given the company has confirmed that it is not offering a vRS model of the new Fabia.

The Fabia Monte Carlo is based on SE trim and adds equipment such as 16in or 17in black alloy wheels, black exterior design elements and tinted windows and a tinted panoramic sliding glass roof.

Inside, it gets a three-spoke sports steering wheel, sports seats and black interior details.

Pricing is set to be revealed closer to its on-sale date, but because of the level of extra kit that it comes with it is expected to be closer in price to the SE-L than the SE model, which means it is likely to start at about £13,600.

Not specifically about the Monte Carlo model, but it occurs to me that the new Fabia Estate appears to make the Rapid Spaceback immediately redundant. Compare the figures: Fabia Estate from £12,460 OTR with 530/1,395 litres of boot space. Rapid Spaceback from £14,500 OTR with 415/1,380 litres of boot space. Am I missing something?

It will be interesting to see one of these in reality. The "Monte Carlo" treatment of the previous generation of Fabias had the odd effect IMHO of making them look rather worse finished than the the more "cooking" versions.Presumably this was not the intention!

What makes it "sporty" in your opinion?

If I want an autonomous car, I'll take a taxi.
