I do not claim responsibility for that post. Just copy - pasted stuff with source.

My i10 has rear A/C vents, but under the seats, not the same type as in the Scorpio, Linea etc.

yes they both have rear ac vents below the front seats . i can upload pics if you desire for the punto
Does it have the dedicated rear ac vents like in Linea? I dont think so. The rear AC vents you are talking about are for under rear seats and work only when the air is directed towards feet. Almost all premium Hatchbacks have these vents, including Punto.

Yes i agree. I just checked out the site and yes the ac vents are similar to the ones seen on hatches Punto and alike. I misinterpreted their statement which was made after the Fabia launch. But whats bothering me is that why this special REAR AC thing(I thought it to be like one we see in Linea) has been highlighted by Skoda when almost every other hatch has this feature.

Wow the pricing looks exciting as well the interiors.
But looks some features has been reduced to justify the price revision.
All the engines looks to be borrowed from Polo's table.

Like i said, I never had a doubt. But after seeing the features vs price. I feel Figo Titanium makes more sense then Fabia Ambiente TDI. Just that people will not carry the image or status symbol alongwith Figo (No offence to current FIGO owners) but feature wise they will not feel disapointed. Rather people buying Fabia now would feel the other way.

Just a thought. What's your take on that.

@Arkin -- rear ac vents in i10? Are you referring to new i10? or the kappa1 that we both have?
Also I would like you to consider Fabia 1.6. Hope Arkin takes a TD of this before finalizing his next car.
