THE new Škoda Fabia will be making its debut at the Paris Motor Show which starts today (Thursday, October 2) and runs until Sunday October 19.
The manufacturer will be celebrating a double world premiere: as a hatchback and an estate.
The third-generation model comes with innovative safety, comfort and infotainment systems that are usually featured in higher vehicle classes, and is more environmentally friendly than ever before.
The boot boasts an impressive 330 litre capacity, making it the biggest within its segment. The new Fabia will be available in Europe as early as November with the Fabia Combi following in early 2015.
After the Octavia, the Fabia is the bestselling Škoda model with a total of almost 3.5 million units sold since 1999, making it it one of the most popular vehicles of its class. With the completely new third generation, the ‘crisp’ small car again sets standards. “The new Fabia is, in every respect, simply more car and offers both innovative technology and emotionally-charged design,” said ŠKODA CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland.
“A great car for heart and mind, ideal for the modern, urban mobility of today. We are very confident that the new Fabia will write another chapter in the model’s success story, win over new customer groups and, as an important pillar of our growth strategy, further strengthen the brand’s shine within international markets,” he added.
For the first time at Škoda, the new Fabia allows smartphones to be easily paired to the car via MirrorLink™ technology and with the new SmartGate function. ŠKODA is bringing the intelligence of the smartphone into the car – easily and at a good price.
Thanks to new engines (four petrol and three diesel), and improved aerodynamics, consumption and emission values are up to 17 per cent lower.
