22 years after its debut, the popular small car combines classic ŠKODA qualities such as reliability, ease of use and outstanding practicality with enhanced safety, comfort and dynamism.
Johannes Neft, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development, emphasised: “Boasting an emotive design language, the new Fabia is a true ŠKODA at first glance. Compared to its predecessor, we have significantly improved the interior – offering a high level of comfort, advanced infotainment and innovative assistance systems. An even more spacious interior, engines that are as efficient as they are powerful, and excellent handling round off the car’s appeal. Our new entry‑level model has everything you could want from a modern small car – and more.”
Clear-cut headlights, which extend to the radiator grille, characterise the front view of the new Fabia. Even the standard variant features modern LED technology; full LED headlights with a comprehensive range of functions are available on request. A full LED variant is also available as an option for the tail lights, which feature crystalline structures typical of the brand. The new interior design of the ŠKODA Fabia enhances the small car’s feeling of spaciousness even further. The symmetrical instrument panel with its central, free-standing display, and the horizontal, differently coloured decorative strips (depending on the trim line), emphasise the width of the interior. Furthermore, the Virtual Cockpit is making its Fabia debut.
Oliver Stefani, Head of ŠKODA Design, who has completely reinterpreted ŠKODA’s effective crystalline design language with the successful small car, said: “ŠKODA has consistently continued to develop its design language with the new Fabia. The compact hatchback is particularly sporty and elegant visually. Sculptural lines, dynamic proportions and modern light units with LED technology and the crystalline structures typical of ŠKODA make for a dynamic and modern appearance.”
With a portfolio of five efficient petrol engines (from 48 kW to 110 kW) to choose from, and its agile handling, the new ŠKODA Fabia is ideally equipped to cover both short and long distances. Its compact dimensions make it ideal for urban traffic. All five engines are from Volkswagen Group’s new EVO generation and for the most part offer a combined fuel consumption of approximately five litres per 100 km in the WLTP cycle. With the introduction of the new generation, the ŠKODA Fabia is now also available with a new top-of-the-range engine. The 1.5 TSI produces 110 kW (150 PS) from its four cylinders and is combined with a 7-speed DSG as standard.
ŠKODA also equips the Fabia with a large number of its brand-typical Simply Clever features and has once again significantly expanded the range of ingenious details with the launch of the model’s fourth generation. A total of 13 new solutions are making their Fabia debut – five of which are a ŠKODA first – bringing the overall options of practical details in the small car to 43. The Fabia offers popular ŠKODA classics such as the ice scraper in the fuel filler flap with a tyre tread depth gauge and the ticket holder on the A-pillar. The folding backrest of the front passenger seat, a multifunction storage pocket under the boot cover, an additional USB-C socket on the rear-view mirror and, for the rear passengers, two smartphone storage pockets on the front seatbacks have found their way into the small car from other ŠKODA models.
