Skoda releases teaser of fourth-gen Fabia

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 11 Feb 2021


Skoda has previewed the fourth-generation in a teaser image, a silhouette which hints at the new proportions of the small car. The world premiere of the new Skoda Fabia is set for later this year, between March and May 2021.

The new Skoda Fabia is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Transverse Toolkit MQB-A0 for the first time. This platform enhances the interior space and supports the use of state-of-the-art assistance systems and connectivity features.

With the changeover to the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Transverse Toolkit MQB-A0, the new Fabia is larger than its predecessor in all dimensions. For example, the boot volume,

which was already one of the Fabia’s highlights, has grown by a further 50 litres. Thanks to an even more rigid body structure, the MQB-A0 also brings further improvements in passive safety as well as the option of installing numerous modern assistance systems, which were previously only available in higher vehicle classes.

 

The new Fabia is powered by the latest generation of petrol engines. Skoda has opted for state-of-the-art petrol engines which come from the Volkswagen Group’s EVO engine generation and combine high efficiency with low emissions. The new Skoda Fabia will, as always, come with front-wheel drive, with a manual gearbox or automatic 7-speed DSG.
