2015 Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo revealed

The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo will be a sporty new model near the top of the new Fabia range, and it has made its debut at the upcoming Geneva motor show.

The Monte Carlo used to be a special edition, but due to its popularity on previous generations it is now a permanent addition to the range.

The Fabia Monte Carlo is based on SE trim and adds a selection of sporty features to the car, including 16in or 17in black alloy wheels, black design elements to the exterior, like door mirrors, and tinted windows and a tinted panoramic glass roof.

Inside, it comes with a three-spoke sports steering wheel, sports seats and a black interior.

Despite the Monte Carlo not getting a power boost over the standard Fabias, it is also available with optional sports suspension.

Pricing is set to be revealed closer to its on-sale date, but because of the amount of extra kit 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.

The Fabia Monte Carlo will be available to order in the UK from around June, with the first deliveries scheduled to start around August.
