Powertrain range: five efficient petrol engines

› Wide range of powertrains from 48 kW (65 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS)
› All engines from Volkswagen Group’s new EVO generation
› Ranges of more than 950 km with the 50-litre tank

The new ŠKODA FABIA offers a choice of five efficient petrol engines. With this, ŠKODA has not only increased the number of different engines compared to the predecessor, but the range of power outputs – from 48 kW (65 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS) – is also significantly wider than before. All five engines are from Volkswagen Group’s new EVO generation and for the most part allow for a combined fuel consumption of approximately five litres per 100 km in the WLTP cycle. This makes the new FABIA up to 10 per cent more economical than the model’s predecessor. If combined with the optional 50-litre tank, this results in ranges of more than 950 km.

The range of engines available for the new ŠKODA FABIA includes two multipoint injection (MPI) petrol engines and three TSIs with direct injection. The new entry-level engine is a 1.0 MPI with three cylinders and an output of 48 kW (65 PS). This is an increase of 4 kW (5 PS) compared to its predecessor. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a new manual 5-speed gearbox, which is also used in the variant featuring the second MPI engine. This generates an output of 59 kW (80 PS). Both MPI engines in the new ŠKODA FABIA comply with the current Euro 6d emissions standard.



New type of plasma coating on 1.0 TSI engines

The two EVO-generation three-cylinder 1.0 TSI engines feature an innovative plasma coating. The cylinder liners have been powder-coated with a thin layer measuring just 150 μm (0.15 mm). This reduces internal friction, which lowers fuel consumption, emissions and, by better distribution and dissipation of heat in the combustion chamber, the thermal load on the engine. The 1.0 TSI producing 70 kW (95 PS) comes with a manual 5-speed gearbox, while the more powerful 1.0 TSI delivering 81 kW (110 PS) is coupled with a manual 6-speed gearbox. If the optional 50-litre tank is chosen in conjunction with any of the four engines instead of the standard 40-litre fuel reservoir, the range is more than 950 km with a combined consumption of roughly five litres per 100 km in the WLTP cycle. The 1.0 TSI with a power output of 81 kW (110 PS) can also be equipped with a 7‑speed DSG as an option.


New top-of-the-range engine producing 110 kW (150 PS)

With the change to the fourth-generation model, 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. This engine, which is also used in other ŠKODA models, features active cylinder technology (ACT). When engine load is low, this automatically, and virtually without the driver noticing, shuts down two cylinders, thereby reducing fuel consumption. All TSI engines in the new ŠKODA FABIA have petrol particulate filters and comply with the current Euro 6d emissions standard.
