What is it?
Remember the Fabia Greenline? It was the fuel-sipping eco-friendly version of the Fabia with tweaked aerodynamics, low-friction tyres and an aerodynamic undertray.
It was an altogether sensible proposition, just as the regular Fabia was and continues to be. So, if the Greenline was the sensible option, what’s the Redline?
Far from the opposite. It’s powered by the Volkswagen Group’s three-cylinder 1.0 TSI petrol engine with 109bhp and 148lb ft and based on the mid-range SE-spec car, with a few additional extras to make it a little special. Primary among them are two stripes running the length of the car, red door mirror caps and black alloy wheels, while inside, there are figure-hugging sports seats. Heavens.
