Fabia vRS: extreme drive
Skoda’s vRS is supposed to be ‘made of meaner stuff’. But can it cope with one of Britain’s steepest and most extreme roads?

A RenaultSport Clio for five hundred quid more would murder this vRS. And without the USP of diesel manual, it no longer has any dynamic jokers to play. So it's a price thing. And yes, you'd buy this vRS over a Polo GTi simply because it does everything the Polo does for a lot less money. But you wouldn't buy it because it did anything differently. The vRS is the perfect car for people who want to be seen to be different, while remaining exactly the same. But real free-thinkers will be left wondering where the old vRS has gone to die.
