Skoda's revised Fabia, Fabia Estate and Roomster will cost slightly more than the outgoing models when they go on sale in April - although they are still set to compete strongly on price.

The base Fabia will, equipped with a 1.2-litre 60bhp powerplant, will cost £9330. That's an increase of £200 over the current entry-level model, but it's cheaper than the VW Polo and Seat Ibiza, the car's VW Group stablemates.

The most appealing Fabia could well be the new 1.2 TSI model, which has 105bhp and can be ordered with a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG gearbox. With that mechanical spec it costs £12,725.

The best Fabias for CO2 emissions should be the new common-rail diesel models; the 1.6-litre unit produces either 90bhp or 105bhp, and emits 109g/km of CO2 in both states of tune. Oil-burner prices start at £11,840.

Skoda has yet to announce pricing for the hot Fabia vRS that was launched at the Geneva show.

The Fabia Estate will cost from £10,425, roughly the same as the outgoing car, and while some models will adopt a small increase - such as the 1.2 TSI DSG over the outgoing 1.6 Tiptronic - they will also offer a substantial saving in CO2 emissions.

Skoda has also confirmed pricing for the Roomster. It will cost from £11,260, a rise of around £300 on the outgoing car. The range-topping 1.6 TDI Scout will set you back £15,380, £160 more than the outgoing 1.9 TDI variant.

Re: Skoda confirms Fabia prices

It doesn't matter how long I look at this new Fabia, I just don't like it. It's boxy and ugly and the interior looks and feels cheap. (or at least the pre-facelift one did and I can't see any great difference between the two)

Nope, I'll hang on to my old one for a bit yet and then I feel another non-VW brand coming on.

Yes but the question is how do you back that up? There are strong arguments both ways. The facelift looks very very similar to the latest Polo, Ibiza and A1 with the same style dashboard design and equipment, and identical engines and gearboxes.

The first Fabia was the first car to use the platform that also spawned the previous Polo and Ibiza, but the latest Fabia still uses that platform whereas the latest Polo/Ibiza use the new one. I've heard the differences between them aren't actually that great though so don't think it really matters as much as what engines they use e.t.c. and the Fabia is now bang up to date.

I'm sure the Polo and Ibiza will soon get the 85BHP TSI, but it's probably in short supply at the moment and has only just been announced for the Fabia/Roomster and A1.
