Skoda has just started production of its new Fabia at the Mlada Boleslav plant in the Czech Republic. The fourth-generation city car will soon be available to order.
Kick-off for the new Fabia ! Revealed in May, the fourth generation of the city car comes fromgo into production at the Mlada Boleslav plant in the Czech Republic. Skoda has invested some 110 million euros to be able to install the car on these assembly lines.
Launched in 1999 and since sold more than 4.5 million copies, the Fabia is one of Skoda’s iconic vehicles. She is even the second most popular model of the firm behind the Octavia.
La Fabia takes volume
The new version that is arriving therefore has a capital importance for the builder. So as not to miss it, the latter therefore decided to change everything. Or almost. The Fabia 4 is based in particular on a new platform (the MQB-A0 of the Volkswagen group, already used for the VW Polo and the Seat Ibiza), which allows it to lengthen by 11 cm compared to its predecessor (4.11 m). This growth obviously benefits the livability but also the trunk volume, up to 50 liters to 380 liters (1,190 liters, rear seats folded down).
More modern the new Fabia
On the design side, the Fabia takes a sacred youthful look with tighter and more dynamic lines. Ditto inside. The model is modernized, in particular thanks to the arrival, as an option, of the Digital Cockpit (a first), with a 10.25-inch digital handset and central floating touchscreen (6.5, 8 or 9.2 inches).
New technologies are also present with the presence of the semi-autonomous “Travel Assist” driving system and “Park Assist” parking aid.
Only in essence
Finally, under the hood, Skoda grafts five petrol engines : two MPI engines (3 cylinders 1.0L 65 and 80 hp) and three TSI direct injection engines (3 cylinders 1.0l 95 and 110 hp and 4 cylinders 1.5L 150) for powers ranging from 65 hp to 150 hp. With 5 or 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission (DSG7).
The new Fabia will be offered in three finishes when it launched in the fall (Active, Ambition and Style). Now all that remains is to know its prices …
