NEW SKODA FABIA IS LONGER THAN A VOLKSWAGEN GOLF

Little cars are getting big. The new Skoda Fabia – to be unveiled this year – will grow by as much as 11 centimetres to 4.11 metres. That makes him taller than a Volkswagen Golf … Mk3 generation (1992 – 1998).

The upcoming Skoda Fabia is 11 centimeters longer (4.11 meters) and 5 centimeters wider (1.78 meters) than its predecessor, with a 9 centimeter longer wheelbase (2.56 meters). The latter is especially important, of course, because that gives the designers more space to … Well… space. Space for occupants and luggage. Because in the new Fabia the trunk has grown by 50 liters (380 liters). With the back seat folded, no less than 1190 liters can be strut.

EVOLUTIONARY APPEARANCE WITH GREAT ATTENTION TO AERODYNAMICS

There is little to say about the appearance of the fourth generation. Although we have the idea that Skoda once again opts for a design evolution. The lines under the black and white-green camouflage are familiar to us. Skoda already reports that all Fabias will have standard LED lighting (Full-LED is an option). Aerodynamics is also an even greater priority than usual. To save fuel, the bottom floor is now flat and the air vent in the front bumper can be closed.

NEW SKODA FABIA FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH VIRTUAL COCKPIT

Like other models of the Volkswagen Group, the Skoda Fabia gets a Virtual Cockpit (a digital instrumentation). In the Netherlands, the model is only available with petrol engines: two three-cylinders with a capacity of 1.0 liters and a power of 95 or 110 hp. The least powerful is coupled to a manual five-box, on the strongest is an automatic seven-speed DSG transmission standard. The list of safety and assistance systems is long, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist, Side Assist, Park Assist and road sign recognition.

The latter is especially important, of course, because that gives the designers more space to … Well… space. Space for occupants and luggage. Because in the new Fabia the trunk has grown by 50 liters (380 liters). With the back seat folded, no less than 1190 liters can be strut. NEW SKODA FABIA
