› With more than 4.5 million deliveries, the FABIA is a key pillar of the ŠKODA line-up
› The FABIA is the second most produced ŠKODA model after the OCTAVIA
› Germany was the most important sales market in 2020 ahead of the Czech Republic and Poland

Mladá Boleslav, 4 May 2021 – ŠKODA brings 22 years of experience in the small car segment to the fourth-generation FABIA. Since its market launch in 1999, the FABIA hatchback and the FABIA COMBI have been important cornerstones of the Czech carmaker’s success, with more than 4.5 million units now delivered. It is the second most produced ŠKODA model after the OCTAVIA and one of the most popular vehicles in its segment.

“ŠKODA has been writing a success story for 22 years with the FABIA. Its attractive overall package – plenty of space despite compact overall dimensions, high levels of safety, efficiency, functionality and excellent value for money – has created a large fan base. From novice drivers to older people and from singles to families, it appeals to a wide range of customers. Our latest, fourth-generation FABIA adds an emotive design and an even more spacious interior to the proven strengths of our popular entry-level model. This will allow us to appeal to even more customers.”

Martin Jahn, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Sales and Marketing
