Design and technology update for the ŠKODA FABIA – four years after the launch of the third generation, the small car has been comprehensively modernised. Inside, a newly designed instrument cluster and new seat upholstery provide fresh visual highlights. Front and rear LED lights as well as 18-inch alloy wheels for the hatchback variant are available for the first time. In addition, ŠKODA has expanded the range of driver assistance systems and Simply Clever features. There is a choice of three engines with power outputs ranging from 55 kW (75 PS) to 81 kW (110 kW).

The comprehensively revised ŠKODA FABIA – highlights at a glance:

Design: The front section, radiator grille and rear section have an even more dynamic and distinctive design. The range of alloy wheels includes 18-inch wheels for the hatchback variant for the first time. The ColourConcept allows customers to personalise the roof with A-pillars, wing mirrors and alloy wheels in the contrasting colours black, white or silver.

Engines: The updated engine portfolio includes one MPI and two TSI three-cylinder petrol engines with a 1.0-litre capacity. Both TSI engines are now equipped with petrol particulate filters.

LED technology: In the EU, all ŠKODA FABIAs come with LED daytime running lights as standard. LED headlights and LED tail lights (as standard with the ŠKODA FABIA MONTE CARLO) are available as options.

Assistance systems: The comprehensive range of active and passive safety systems has been expanded with new assistance systems which support the driver when changing lanes, manoeuvring and switching between dipped beam and high beam. These systems had so far been reserved for higher vehicle segments.

Interior: The dashboard is characterised by a redesigned instrument cluster with new round instruments which can be read even more easily. New decors and higher-quality materials round off the overall impression. Depending on the trim level, the seats come with microfibre (Suedia) / fabric covers or in two colours; decorative stitching creates dynamic accents.

Usability: With a new easy-to-use function, each individual electric window automatically opens or closes after just one long press of the button in the door panel. All electric windows come with this function. It is also possible to open or close all electric windows at the same time by holding the lock or unlock button on the remote-control key. New illumination of the centre console storage compartment is standard for the Style trim level and for the ŠKODA FABIA MONTE CARLO.

Infotainment: The Amundsen infotainment system allows users to connect to Infotainment Online, offers a Wi-Fi hotspot and allows access to up to two tablets via ŠKODA Media Command 2.0. The Swing Plus infotainment system with 6.5-inch colour display is new to the range.

Simply Clever: The ŠKODA FABIA offers numerous Simply Clever features including new ones such as two USB ports in the rear and a removable LED torch in the boot for the ŠKODA FABIA COMBI.

ŠKODA FABIA MONTE CARLO: The lifestyle variant comes with front and roof spoilers as well as a rear diffuser in a sporty black. A MONTE CARLO badge features on both B-pillars and on the door sills. The side sills come in black. The instrument panel is finished in a new carbon decor. Sports seats in carbon leather with white stitching and red decorative stitching on the front door trims as well as on the optional centre armrest also provide visual references to the world of motorsport.

The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such time as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO₂ emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle.
