Scout Review


Skoda India is at its heels for unveiling the new Skoda Fabia scout in the upcoming Auto Expo in India. The prefix Skoda Fabia gives this new car a reliability demanded by Indian customers. Fabia hatchback has garnered decent response in Indian market and the Czech car maker has now readied an off-roader version of the same christening it as Skoda Fabia Scout.

The Skoda Fabia Scout cannot be termed as a perfect off-roader because of the absence of four wheel drive version generally possessed by all off-roaders in India. The car also lacks limited slip differential or lockable differentials. Skoda Fabia Scout is a front wheel drive car with raised suspension for a wider ground clearance. Taller springs, matching dampers and anti-roll bars are used for raising the suspension of Fabia hatchback to bring about Fabia Scout.

The car maker wants to give Indians a relief from the ample potholes and bumps on roads. In simple words, the Fabia Scout is a normal Fabia with a rough road package.

The new car is all set to hit Indian shores with the same engine which does its duty in Fabia hatchback. The 105bhp 1.6 petrol will be the most attractive option, and the 1.2 three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines may be made available as well. Skoda Fabia Scout truly lacks the SUV charm which is preferred for an off-roader by Indians.

Skoda Fabia Scout will be an ideal companion on trips across poorly paved secondary roads in India. Current Skoda Fabia hatch measures 4 m in length and if the car maker intends to increase this length in the new Scout, expect the price to elevate because above 4 meter cars attract higher excise duty.

Coming to the exteriors, the Indian version of Fabia Scout will follow the front of standard Skoda Fabia hatch with the same nose and front bumper with chrome band incorporating the mighty Skoda badge and fins vertically below it. It is quite a possibility that Skoda Fabia Scout is devoid of roof rails and alloy wheels, though these features are standard on the European version.

Skoda Fabia Scout will endorse scratch and gravel-resistant cladding for the getting in and out of the car. The wheel arches are clad in the same material and there is cladding used around the rear of the car as well which renders an off-roader look and protects the car from all sides. There’s a scuff plate at the rear also with ‘Scout’ encryption. It will essentially be a five seater with not a big boot. The car is expected to feature a 3-spoke steering wheel.

Since Skoda Fabia hatch range ends at Rs 6.89 lakh, the Scout will come with a tag higher than it.
