The third generation of ŠKODA’s award-winning city car, the new ŠKODA Fabia is an attention-stealing model with an expressively designed exterior, a dynamic interior and an economical, high-performing engine tucked under the bonnet.
An elegant intersection of clean lines gives the new ŠKODA Fabia a distinctly modern look. Available in both the Fabia Hatchback and Fabia Estate models, both kinds of car emphasise the geometric positioning of the sloping bonnet down to the grille. The Fabia Hatchback delivers a sportier impression, while the Fabia Estate pulls off a sense of road-straddling strength, with a larger length and a powerfully contoured bonnet. The S model has 15-inch Dentro steel wheels as standard, while 15-inch Mato alloy wheels come with the SE model and 16-inch Rock alloy wheels can be found on the top-tier SE L trim level. Also standard on the S model are body-coloured door mirrors and door handles, as well as electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors.
Step inside the new Fabia and on the entry-level model you'll find a three-spoke steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver's seat and electric front windows. Look into the SE trim level and the Fabia comes equipped with a leather gearshift and handbrake lever, while the SE L trim level includes an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, front and rear floor mats and climate control air conditioning.
When it comes to storage, the new Fabia has a spacious and flexible luggage compartment with folding-rear seats, as well as range of smartly positioned pockets, hooks and compartments to use.
Powering the new Fabia is a fantastic line-up of engines to choose from. If you’re looking for flexibility, the 1.2-litre TSI turbo charged four-cylinder petrol engine balances power and efficiency to spectacular effect. Available in 89 and 109bhp variants, the 1.2-litre TSI manages a maximum speed of 113mph with 89bhp in the hatchback and 115mph in the estate, or 122mph with 109bhp in the hatchback and 124mph in the estate. The 89bhp engine offers a fuel consumption of around 60mpg and the 109bhp offers around 59mpg. The 1.4-litre TDI three-cylinder diesel engine is a perfect choice if you’re planning on travelling further distances, with an improved fuel consumption of either 78.5 or 80.7mpg, depending on whether you go for the 89 or 104bhp model. There’s also the 1.0-litre MPI three-cylinder petrol engine, perfectly suited to city driving with a maximum speed of between 99 and 107mph.
Full of useful technology, the ŠKODA Fabia S model features a DAB digital radio, a Bluetooth® system and start/stop engine system that helps to save fuel. If you decide to go for the SE trim level you’ll find six loudspeakers, an Arkamys surround sound package, acoustic rear parking sensors, a Maxi DOT trip computer and an in-built Speed limiter. The top level SE L model also includes cruise control and a KESSY Go keyless start and exit system, meaning you’ll be able to hit the road without ever having to take out your keys.
An impressive range of safety features has secured the ŠKODA Fabia a five-star certification from Euro NCAP. The rigid body structure has been engineered for maximum energy absorption. There are also a variety of systems in place, including Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with a multi-collision brake, a tyre pressure monitoring system and driver fatigue detection. There are also various passive safety systems to give complete peace of mind while driving, such as curtain airbags, front and side airbags and ISOFIX child seat fittings.
