  • Most spacious car within its segment, boot increased by 50 l
  • Emotive design, state-of-the-art infotainment and new Simply Clever solutions

  • Sub €20,000 entry price expected

4 May 2021 – Twenty-two years after the ŠKODA FABIA made its debut, the Czech car manufacturer is lining up the fourth generation of its popular small car. It is now based on Volkswagen Group’s modular MQB-A0 platform and is the most spacious car within its segment, boasting further improved comfort features and numerous advanced safety and assistance systems. Classic and appealing brand qualities, such as value for money, high levels of functionality, and a plethora of Simply Clever features, make the new FABIA a true ŠKODA. It is expected that the new Fabia will go on sale for under €20,000 and will arrive in Ireland in December 2021.

Thomas Schäfer, ŠKODA AUTO CEO, said: “The FABIA has been an integral part of our portfolio for over 20 years and embodies the core values of our brand like no other model. The latest generation has everything it takes to seamlessly build on the success of its predecessors. It offers more space than its competitors, perfect connectivity, advanced assistance systems and an emotive design – in other words, all you need, and a little more.”

For the first time, the ŠKODA FABIA is based on the modular MQB-A0 platform from Volkswagen Group, which made it possible to make the interior even bigger. Now exceeding the four-metre mark, at 4,108 mm, the new FABIA is considerably longer than its predecessor. The boot – which at 330 l was already the largest in the segment – has gained an additional 50 l to a capacious 380 l. Based on the MQB-A0, the new FABIA now also boasts many assistance systems that were previously reserved for higher-tier vehicles. In conjunction with the even stiffer body, the small car offers excellent active and passive safety.


Emotive design, best-in-class aerodynamics and a range of more than 900 km

Its emotive design and self-assured proportions make the new FABIA very appealing. Razor-sharp headlights, as well as tail lights with modern LED technology and crystalline structures, emphasise its dynamic appearance. The redesigned interior features a symmetrical dashboard with a free‑standing central display, an optional digital instrument cluster and horizontal decorative strips. A sporty MONTE CARLO variant will follow later. Five petrol engines from Volkswagen Group’s current EVO generation deliver power outputs ranging from 48 kW (65 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS). With a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.28, the FABIA is the most aerodynamic car in its segment, which – together with an optional 50-litre fuel tank – allows for a range of more than 900 km in the WLTP cycle.
