Although we are not very used to seeing B-segment models as police cars -it is not the first time we have seen them but it is rare- today from Skoda UK they have shown us the new homologation of the skoda fabia like a police car.
Although the fourth generation has gained packaging, security, equipment and many key elements, obviously in addition to size and more powerful mechanics, we do not know very well how it will work as a police car.
The new Fabia builds on the legacy of its predecessors with a dynamic new design and a host of advanced comfort and safety technologies. Despite its increase in size, it is still a compact car and that is where we see the main problem.
A selection of four EVO petrol engines with powers from 80 to 150 hpwhich propel the FABIA from 0 to 100 km/h in just eight seconds and to a top speed of 220 km/h in Monte Carlo trim with the 150PS 1.5-litre engine.
A 360-degree lighting system and full integration of the emergency services communication platform within the existing infotainment setup have been installed for UK police services, ensuring that all functions , such as lighting and siren.
The trunk of the Fabia now provides 380 liters volumethe largest in its segment and expandable up to 1,190 liters with the rear seats folded down.
Available even with new airbags as well as a host of driver assistance technology, including maneuver assist and predictive pedestrian protection.
