New Skoda in December

The new Skoda Fabia will be launched in Ireland on December 1, with the cheapest version costing €13,895, the car maker announced yesterday.

Model Vogue Williams (pictured) was present at the announcement in Dublin, at which Skoda Ireland head of marketing and product Raymond Leddy said the Fabia is "a completely new car".

"It is not a facelift but is entirely new inside and out, utilising the latest engines and technologies," he said.

Since the car's launch in 2000, over 3.4 million Fabias have been sold worldwide.
