The new ŠKODA FABIA’s drag coefficient has been improved from the previous generation’s cx 0.32 to cx 0.28. One important feature is the innovative radiator shutter located in the lower air intake on the front bumper. When cooling is not required, the slats close by themselves. At a constant speed of 120 km/h, this translates into fuel savings of up to 0.2 l/100 km. As a result, the new FABIA emits up 5 g less CO₂/km.
