Winner of What Car? Car of the Year 2017 award for Best Estate Car under £18,000, the new ŠKODA Fabia Estate continues to impress industry critics and customers alike. Low running costs and excellent standard equipment means the ŠKODA Fabia Estate is a brilliant choice for drivers who want plenty of space alongside value for money and a class-leading drive. Starting from just £13,195 and available in four trim levels - S, SE, SE L and Monte Carlo - the Fabia Estate is bigger, better and more practical than ever.
The Fabia Estate is versatile and robust in its design yet combines practicality with the sharpness of ŠKODA’s crystalline styling to produce a beautiful estate vehicle. With long rear overhangs, high shoulder line to the rear and expressive detailing throughout, the Fabia Estate has the appeal of the hatchback model whilst offering increased load capacity. With 530 litres of boot space which can be increased to 1,395 litres by folding the rear seats down, the ŠKODA Fabia Estate can handle any load. But should you need additional space, roof rails are fitted as standard to carry bulky cargo such as bikes and mounted luggage.
Although the new Fabia Estate is
larger and broader than its predecessor, the new ŠKODA design language ensures
that this model is a head-turner on the road. The crystalline shapes flow out
from front to back, cutting an elegant silhouette that also contributes to the efficiency
of the Fabia Estate drive. To the front, a distinctive grille and precision cut headlights create a strong look to compliment the contoured bonnet and body of the car.
ŠKODA have created a car that balances the practicality and space expected by estate vehicle drivers, with the kind of dynamic design that makes the Fabia Estate a car to be desired.
Space and practicality continue to be the guiding principles behind the interior design of the ŠKODA Fabia Estate. The cabin offers comfortable seating for 5 passengers with generous headroom plus ample space for luggage and handy storage pockets. Standard equipment includes Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio, Remote central locking and ISOFIX child seating. Step up the range to get additional features such as climate control, rear parking sensors and leather steering wheel with handy controls keeping everything within easy reach of the driver. Every detail has been carefully considered to give the dashboard an intuitive look and feel.
The performance of the Fabia Estate is remarkably similar to the hatchback version, which highlights how efficient the engines are. The 1.0-litre MPI entry-level petrol is a lightweight three-cylinder engine but produces an impressive 75PS of power and up to 57.6 mpg. If you want more power, there is a the new 1.0-litre TSI available with 95PS or 110PS, a perfect choice for drivers wanting a turbocharged performance with the added benefit of exceptional emissions performance. For the best fuel economy figures the ŠKODA Fabia Estate offers 1.4-litre TDI 75PS, 90PS or 105PS diesel engines, with the standard 1.4 TDI returning up to 72.4mpg and C02 emissions of 104g/km. Whether you opt for the petrol or diesel, each Fabia Estate comes with the intelligent ŠKODA engine Start/Stop system as standard which helps to improve the economy performance by turning off the engine when it is not needed.
Standard safety equipment includes six airbags that will activate on impact as well as stability control and seatbelt reminders. A front assist system will warn you when you get too close to the car in front. The SE models and above include low-speed collision avoidance technology to help you stay out of trouble while you can add the clever fatigue sensor from ŠKODA if you wish.
