If you’ve ever visited Japan, you’ll probably be aware at how different and even alien its culture is compare with the West.
Car buyers in Japan are often given access to some unusual designs that never see the light of day in Europe.
One very Japanese product has been available in the UK since the beginning of 2010, but you’d possibly not know unless you lived near a Nissan dealer in a large city.
The old Skoda Fabia vRS had a cult following among the hot-hatch loving British car buyers.
It appealed firstly because it was based on one of the most sensible five-door small cars on sale and, secondly, it was available only as a diesel.
The second-generation Fabia vRS signals a significant change in direction, and maybe not for the better.
