Renault Symbol

vs Skoda Fabia

New Renault Symbol is a new three-box saloon which features appealing look-and-feel. Its length of 4. 26 metres and height of 1. 43 metres ensure nicely balanced proportions. The harmonious forms of its headlamps and body colour look mirrors underpin the front end’s status-enhancing looks. Seen from the side, its lines are those of a prestigious saloon and the presence of a third side window ensures first class visibility.

The reliable layout of the back is also suggestive of status, an impression which is compounded by the body colour back bumper and wrap-round back lights. The use of chrome trimming for the grille surround and back panel adds a further note of refined distinction (depending on equipment level). New Renault Symbol can also be ordered with an auxillary Exterior Pack (additional lights and satin chrome door handles) and 14-or 15-inch aluminium alloy wheels.

A broad range of accessories allows owners to further modify their car’s looks as a function of their personal taste. Items available from release are a back wing, chrome look mirror housings, door protective mouldings and specific aluminium 14-wheels. Three non-metallic body colors are available (glacier White, Vif Red and Roy Blue), as well as several metallic body colors (cendrГ© Beige, CassiopГ©e Grey, Г©cume Blue, NacrГ© Black, Г©clipse Grey, PoivrГ© Beige, Platine Grey, Olive Grey and Dyna Red).

The same seductive appeal and level of perceived class are apparent inside New Renault Symbol, too. The practical dashboard exudes a sensation of convenience and well-being, while the trim strip of the dash brings an added touch of elegance and refinement. The dash itself features a rev-counter, warning lights and the trip computer screen.

The gearlever knob falls readily to hand, while attributes include a chrome steeringwheel trim (depending on version) and the height-adjustable driver’s bench. A door sills are available as accessories.

New Renault Symbol features segment-leading fuel consumption performance. In their respective categories, the 1. 5 Dci 85hp diesel motor and the petrol 1. 2 16V 75hp return record low combined cycle fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for a three-box car of this size, i. 3 litres/100km (equivalent to CO2 emissions of 116g/km) and 5. 9 litres/100km (equivalent to CO2 emissions of 140g/km).

To achieve such low figures, Renault’s developers paid especially close attention to New Renault Symbol‘s aerodynamics (cda = 0. 691) and to keeping weight to a minimum. Indeed, the 1. 2 16V 75hp-powered version tips the scales at a low 904kg to give it a particularly appealing performance-fuel consumption ratio. New Renault Symbol contributes actively to the ‘120-140’ pledge outlined in the Renault Commitment 2009 plan which saw Renault commit to selling one million cars in 2008 that emit less than 140g of Co2/km, including one third that emit less than 120 g/km.

New Renault Symbol facilitates the life of its owners. It benefits from the new servicing policy presented by Renault at the start of 2008, and consequently longer servicing intervals (variable from sphere to market). Depending on country, servicing intervals (oil change and air filter) are each 15000, km for petrol and diesel engines alike. In the case of petrol engines, the sparkplugs, timing belt and accessory drive belt are to be changed each 60000km.

The timing and accessory drive belts of diesel engines must be changed each 75000km. The diesel filter has to be replaced each 15000, km.

With the Skoda Fabia series, Skoda Auto has established a strong foundation for its five-car portfolio. The supermini’s family roots are evident throughout. From the bold, elegant lines of its look look-and-feel down to its smallest part, the Skoda Fabia exemplifies Skoda’s attention to detail via easy, clever solutions and innovation.

And now, in spring 2010, the Skoda Fabia has been completely updated with a new face and an even greater emphasis on energy efficiency and convenience. The breadth of its technical innovations goes far beyond a mere facelift.

The Skoda Fabia Combi and Skoda Roomster also receive the bold new exterior inside and out as well as numerous technical changes under the skin. But while the looks might have changed, the characteristics of this multi-talented pair have not have not. With luggage capacity of 505 litres with its back seatings in place and 1485 litres with them flat, the Skoda Fabia Combi continues to offer the sort of boot room that exceeds what is normally provided in this class.

Meanwhile the Skoda Roomster, with its extremely versatile Varioflex back bench system, continues to fulfil the requirements of families and active people alike. Its boot volume can be extended from a minimum of 480 litres to 1810 litres, making the Skoda Roomster a load-carrying champion.

The new Skoda Fabia RS also celebrates its premiere at the 2010 Geneva Motorshow and, for the first time, the sportiest Skoda Fabia is available as an estate. Its mix of a high performance 132 Kw (180 bhp) motor and low fuel consumption of just 6. 4 itres/100 km mark it out as a class leader.

With these variants of the Skoda Fabia series, Skoda Auto provides a model range in the small-car segment to meet almost each buyer need.
