Live from the launch: Skoda Fabia VRS

Last time Skoda made a VRS version of its supermini, the Fabia, it decided to make it a little bit different and gave it a diesel engine. This time around the brand has gone for a more conventional approach and has slotted in the same petrol engine that will appear in fast supermini offerings from Seat, VW and Audi.

That particular quirk may have gone, but this doesn't mean the Fabia VRS is not worth considering against these rivals from within the VW group.
