Fabia RS - Wrong!

Fabia RS - Wrong!

The car model 'Skoda Fabia RS' should be 'vRS' instead of 'RS'

It's really annoying me... Please change it!

I'm not very familiar with Skoda. Do you know if the vRS is a trim level of the Fabia or is the Fabia vRS a distinct model?

We like to keep distinct models together, and not worry about splitting trim levels into separate branches. So we could solve this by removing the "RS" distinction altogether if that's a trim designation.

The Fabia vRS is completely different model. Same with the Octavia vRS.

Just re-name RS to vRS and it's sorted.

Looking at the Skoda website they don't list a vRS. Only the RS and the Combi RS with the picture gallery showing the external lettering as "vRS" while the license plate shows "RS" on the same vehicle.

The product specification page of the company's catalog only lists the RS and the Combi RS as well.

What sets the vRS apart from the manufacturer's RS?

Yeah, it does look like Skoda themselves calls it an RS. Maybe they dropped the v recently?

The Wikipedia page for the Skoda Fabia includes a section the Fabia vRS that includes the v. Maybe it's referred to as both?

It's vRS in the logbook and all the badges on the car, it may be a UK thing but I've never heard of a Fabia RS, it's always the vRS.

You got websites like http://www.fabia-vrs.com and so on...

I did some more looking around and found more official uses of "RS" from Skoda, but even on newer models the badge on the car has a big green V in front of the RS. I went ahead and updated the model name in our system.

If anyone else out there has more info about the Fabia vRS vs. RS please let us know.
