Now in the process of being launched, the new Skoda Fabia is the 4th generation of the model, with a notable increase in size and continuing its position as a versatile subcompact.
The Fabia is the second sales pillar of the Czech brand of the Volkswagen group, with 4.5 million units sold in its 20 years of life in the world. In recent years it has experienced a drop, perhaps due to a lack of global updating in the strategic process, which is now being done with the 2021 model with which Skoda brings out its true personality.

And it has been done by achieving a more attractive and emotional design, although continuous in its general lines. It now includes a very wide chrome grille around its perimeter, which incorporates a variable opening of its slats, as well as new full-LED headlights and three-dimensional taillights extended towards the tailgate.
Its level of aerodynamics has been improved to a drag coefficient ( Cx ) of 0.28 , which has contributed to a reduction in consumption of 0.2 litres/100 km. Let us remember that what Cx measures is the aerodynamic efficiency of a car: the lower it is, the less aerodynamic resistance to the car’s progress and, therefore, less consumption and more performance. Currently most cars move between 0.25 and 0.40.
It offers new body colors, up to 9 possibilities (including Phoenix orange and Graphite grey) and also a wide range of wheels ranging from 15” to 19”.
The new Fabia has been built on the new platform of the German group MQB-A0, managing to extend its wheelbase and its length (its wheelbase even exceeds that of the first Octavia 25 years ago). The width also increases by 5 cm and the height of the model, as well as the trunk also increases in capacity:

|4,11||1,78||1,46||2,56||380 – 1.190|
Highly technical interior and larger dimensions
The enlarged dimensions of the model have made it possible to improve its habitability with greater legroom in the rear seats and a very evident interior spaciousness in all positions, including the trunk, as we have seen.
Details that its rivals already showed, such as its new steering wheel, heated windshield and dual-zone climate control, have been incorporated.
In addition, its new dashboard incorporates a new 10.25” configurable digital screen to act as the instrument panel and a new floating touch screen of up to 9.2” that presides over the entire set . On both sides of the dashboard are the classic circular air vents with horizontal grilles and multiple appliqués, even below the central infotainment screen.
