Skoda reveals prices and specs for new Fabia

Fourth-gen of Fiesta and Corsa rival to cost from £14,905 and offer class-leading space

The all-new Skoda Fabia will cost from £14,905 when orders open in late September.

The Czech car maker has announced full pricing and specifications for the fourth-generation supermini, which is arriving 21 years after the Fabia first went on sale.

The latest model is the first Fabia built on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 platform which also underpins the Volkswagen Polo and Seat Ibiza and Skoda says it is the most spacious car in the supermini segment.

Going up against the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and Renault Clio as well as its VW Group relations, the Fabia will be available in four trims and with four engine choices.

Entry level S models will start from £14,905 and as well as LED headlights and lane assist as standard will feature forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and autonomous emergency braking, a 6.5-inch infotainment screen and air conditioning.

Starting at £16,795, SE Comfort models add 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, reversing sensors, height adjustable seats and leather trim to the handbrake, gearshift and multifunction steering wheel.

Colour Edition models will allow greater scope for personalisation and come with black 16-inch alloys and a contrast colour roof and door mirrors. Buyers also get tinted rear glass, an eight-inch infotainment display, 10-inch digital instrument panel and keyless entry for their £17,495.

SE L spec is the current range topper and brings 16-inch alloys, chrome trim, electric windows all round and a 9.2-inch touchscreen. Dual-zone air conditioning, front armrest and upgraded interior materials are also featured for the £18,980 starting price.

A Monte Carlo edition will join the line-up in 2022, bringing more sporty styling to the range.

All four engines in the Fabia range are petrols. Starting the range are two 1.0-litre non-turbo units producing 59bhp or 79bhp and linked to a five-speed manual transmission. Two turbocharged three-cylinder engines offer 94bhp or 109bhp. A six-speed manual is standard on the lower-powered version while the 109bhp model gets a seven-speed DSG auto as standard.
