It will be presented this spring, but the Czech firm now reveals its main details, in addition to showing it for the first time, although under strict camouflage. And as promised when previewed his first teaser, the utility will be better at everything.

A improved habitability And till five gasoline engines, including a TSI of 150 CV they are your business card, as well as more technology at the service of safety and comfort.

Benefits derived from debut for the first time on the MQB platform Volkswagen: the A0 for the little ones in the group that already welcomes the Skoda Kamiq o al Scalaas well as their cousins SEAT Ibiza and Arona, Volkswagen Polo The Audi A1.

In this new installment the Skoda Fabia boasts a more dynamic imprint, being longer and wider, but slightly lower. It also improves habitability, thanks to a almost 10 cm more generous wheelbase, and its trunk is also larger, gaining 50 liters of capacity.

The new Fabia will thus follow the path of the Kamiq, an urban SUV that surprises with the ample space for the legs in the rear seats and the capacity of its trunk. Despite being larger, the brand maintains that it is hardly heavier than its predecessor, although they do not reveal a figure.

In addition, it also boasts improved aerodynamics, with a drag coefficient of 0.28 which, according to Skoda, is the smallest in its segment. Of course, it opens a gap with the outgoing Fabia, which sets it at 0.32.

Thus, this new Fabia promises to be more efficient, both in fuel consumption and in CO₂ emissions. And this has also allowed the inclusion of more powerful mechanics.

Regarding the design, at the moment we can only intuit the changes through the camouflage, but we appreciate a front with more packaging, with a wider grill, faltered by a few sharp headlights. At the rear, the optics are also more stylish, following in the wake of recent releases such as its older brother, the Octavia.

In addition, as we already appreciated in the teaser, it gives the feeling that it will offer a more sporty and attractive image, with a pronounced waist line or a steeper windshield and roof. Skoda also anticipates that new colors and materials will be on the menu.

Gasoline only, between 65 and 150 hp

Until five engines will make up the mechanical range of the new Skoda Fabia, all of the new EVO range from Volkswagen and gasoline. Thus continues the path of the outgoing model that after restyling abandoned the diesel blocks.

The access will be two blocks tri-cylinder multipoint injection (MPI) Y 1.0 liter of 65 CV Y 80 CV. Both will be managed by a five-speed manual gearbox.

The remaining three will be TSI EVO: two one-liter and also three-cylinder, in powers of 95 CV y ​​110 CV. Although the first is found for example in the SEAT Ibiza or the Kamiq, the second is present in the entry range of the Octavia or the SEAT Leon.

The 95 hp TSI will also be associated with the five-speed manual transmission, while the 110 hp will be combined with a six-speed manual transmission and, as an option, can be selected with a seven-speed DSG.

Skoda points out that, with most of these engines, the Fabia’s consumption will be around 5.0 l / 100 consumption (WLTP). In addition, although the standard tank is 40 liters, you can choose to equip one of 50 liters with which you can sign more than 950 km of autonomy.

Finally, the jewel in the crown will be the 1.5 TSI de 150 CV y ​​250 Nm, propellant that we also find in his older brothers and cousins. With it, the new Fabia will become the most powerful in its history, excuse me of the RS of the second generation that reached 180 CV. In your case, you can only be associated with the DSG change.

And although it will consume more than the four with lower delivery, it enjoys active disconnection of ACT cylinders. In addition, both the 1.0 of 100 CV and this 1.5 of 150 CV have mild-hybrid eTSI variants, so that possibility remains open for the utility.

Releasing technology

Finally, the arrival to the MQB-A0 platform also allows the new Skoda Fabia equip more active safety technology. Although in the menu we also find new passive safety elements, such as for example up to nine airbags, including curtain and sides that will be standard in any version.

But also, the utility will enjoy technologies such as Travel Assist, which combines the Adaptive Leather Control (ACC) with Lane Assist Lane Keeping Assist.

And in the same way, it will offer a blind spot detector (Side Assist), parking assistant (Park Assist) or recognition of traffic signs.

This Fabia will also enjoy LED headlights as standard from its most basic finish, although it will also offer optional Full LEDs, and a good range of Simply Clever solutions such as folding passenger backrest, a USB-C in the rear view mirror or removable sun visor for the panoramic roof, among others.
