Running costs

Rivals of the vRS may be scratching their heads as the Fabia averages an impressive claimed 45.6mpg. Also thanks to its low CO2 emissions the vRS qualifies for road tax band C and that means low costs for both the first year showroom tax and on-going road tax. Servicing costs and the price of consumables should also be low.
