Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo lands with a $23,490 list price, with the wagon carrying a $1,150 premium. Beyond that, options are refreshingly limited. Buyers can select the $1,800 Tech Pack, which adds proximity unlocking, climate control, rain-sensing wipers and adaptive cruise control, or you can add navigation, for an extra $950 – but that’s almost irrelevant given Apple CarPlay and Android Auto arrive as standard, so you can easily use your phone’s maps.
And that’s about it for options. You’ll get cruise control, a heap of exterior and interior style elements, push-button start and that mammoth glass roof all as standard fare.
Skoda’s also running a brand-wide drive-away offer, which has no scheduled end date. The deal wraps up all your on-road costs for an extra $1,500.
