2022 Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo Edition Is Here!
2022 Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo Edition – Overview
Skoda has ruled out reintroducing the Fabia RS and will not go any farther with the supermini than the Monte Carlo trim level.
According to the Czech company, the wagon will not return for the fourth generation because today’s flagship model completes the product line.
As with previous versions in this MC specification, the enhancements are primarily cosmetic.
Skoda has used a range of black accents on the outside, which can be seen on the front grille and apron and the mirror caps and side skirts.
The false diffuser and huge “SKODA” lettering on the tailgate are finished in the same black.
The contrasting black roof that extends to the A-pillars and rear spoiler completes the two-tone design.
The standard wheel size is 16 inches, but you can upgrade to a set of 17 inches. Both include plastic trimmings that can be removed to improve aerodynamics and help lower the drag coefficient to 0.28.
A dynamic front grille with adjustable slats also contributes to the Cd’s remarkable performance. Finally, those willing to forego comfort in exchange for more style can opt for the even larger 18-inch alloys.
The cabin is especially carried over from the lower Fabia model levels but with standard sports seats and plenty of red highlights.
There’s also some imitation carbon fibre on the dashboard and door cards, as well as some white stitching to brighten things up.
The Monte Carlo comes with LED ambient lighting; however, the completely digital instrument cluster measuring 10.25 inches is an additional cost.
A fully loaded specification will include:
- A trunk-mounted subwoofer.
- Five USB-C connections.
- Wireless charging.
- A 9.2-inch infotainment system with a 64 GB SSD stores the navigation system’s maps.
The Fabia Monte Carlo is equipped with up to nine airbags and adaptive cruise control that works at speeds up to 130 mph (210 km/h).
Despite being marketed as the sportiest Fabia, the Monte Carlo is only available with standard engines. That means the 1.0-litre naturally aspirated engine, a three-pot with a tremendous 80 horsepower (59 kW) and 93 Nm (69 lb-ft) transmitted to the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission, is a viable option.
It takes 15.5 seconds to get to 62 mph (100 km/h) and has a top speed of 111 mph or (179 kmph).
Next up is the turbocharged 1.0-litre, a three-cylinder with a five-speed manual transmission that produces 95 horsepower (70 kW) and 175 Nm (129 lb-ft).
The sprint time is reduced to 10.6 seconds, and the top speed is increased to 120 mph (193 km/h).
The 1.0 TSI EVO engine may be configured to produce 110 horsepower (81 kW) and 200 Nm (148 lb-ft) and a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The sprint time for the three-pedal version is 10 seconds, while the DSG version is a tenth of a second faster.
Both have a top speed of 127 mph (205 km/h).
The larger four-cylinder 1.5-litre with 150 horsepower (110 kW) and 250 Nm seems to be the best fit for the Fabia Monte Carlo (184 lb-ft). When equipped with the DSG, it can sprint in eight seconds and attain a decent top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h).
Date of Launch
The top-of-the-line Skoda Fabia will be available in Europe later this year.
