Additional driver assistance systems increase the level of comfort and safety in the ŠKODA FABIA. The small car also uses innovative technologies usually only found in higher vehicle segments. The LED headlights, which are available for the ŠKODA FABIA for the first time, come with adaptive lighting control. Also new: Blind Spot Detect, Rear Traffic Alert and Light Assist now make driving in the ŠKODA FABIA even more effortless, safer and more comfortable in different traffic situations.
The revised ŠKODA FABIA offers comprehensive passive and active safety. Standard features include Electronic Stability Control with ABS, EBC, ASR traction control, EBD, and HBA; Multi‑Collision Brake; XDS electronic differential lock; Isofix anchors for two child seats in the rear seats; tyre pressure monitoring and six airbags. Adaptive Cruise Control, rear-view camera, parking sensors, Front Assist with integrated City Emergency Brake, the Driver Alert fatigue detection system, Easy Light Assist, Light and Rain Assist, High-Beam Assist, Blind Spot Detect, Rear Traffic Alert (low), Speedlimiter and Hill-Hold Control are all optional.
Blind Spot Detect
The optional Blind Spot Detect function improves safety when driving on multi-lane roads and when overtaking. Radar sensors monitor the traffic situation behind and next to the car. An LED light in the wing mirror warns of vehicles that are in the blind spot or approaching rapidly from behind.
Rear Traffic Alert (low)
Rear Traffic Alert uses radar sensors at the rear to monitor what is happening behind the car when reversing out of parking spaces or driveways. An acoustic alert and a visual signal on the in-car monitor warn of any risk of collision.
High-Beam Assist reduces the risk of dazzling other road users when driving in the dark. As soon as the front camera detects oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead, the system automatically switches the headlights to dipped beam. High-Beam Assist is also available for halogen headlights.
LED headlights with AFS technology
The optional LED headlights, which are available for the ŠKODA FABIA for the first time, also come with an adaptive front headlights (AFS) function, which illuminates the road to suit the respective driving situation perfectly. This means that the headlights will always produce the ideal light for journeys on urban roads, through the countryside, on the motorway or when visibility is poor.
The front headlights have been given a revamp. The entry-level version uses H7 halogen headlights without lenses for the dipped and high beam. These are brighter than the top-of-the-line halogen headlights used in the current version of the ŠKODA FABIA. The daytime running lights use four LED units. Thanks to the improved technology, the new daytime running lights in the revised ŠKODA FABIA are brighter. The top-of-the-line LED headlights have been enhanced with the new cornering function. When turning, it’s no longer the respective fog light that automatically illuminates the corner, instead it is an LED built directly into the headlights. All bulbs can now also be changed more easily thanks to their improved positioning.
The redesigned rear light clusters also feature LED technology. The brake lights use six LED units; the rear lights, fed by two LED units, shine in the brand-typical ‘C’ shape. Both LED units are covered with special sandblasted glass, which makes the lighting surface appear larger. In addition, the structure of the tail lights has been enhanced by crystalline elements typical of the brand. The fog lights are positioned below the tail lights, as opposed to being part of them.
