Skoda, which until now was selling premium models such as Laura, Yeti, and Superb announced that with the Fabia, it will once again be able to cater to customers wanting to own a Skoda at a lower price.
On the occasion, renowned television personality Bhusan Dahal announced his intention to become one of Fabia’s customers and received his key from former Miss Nepal Malvika Subba.
