What do we know about the 2021 Skoda Fabia?
With bolder looks and style buy yet still within a very decent price point, the new Skoda Fabia is set to make heads turn. But what do we know so far and what can we expect from the Skoda Fabia this year? This blog will give you everything you need to know and give you a bit more of an oversight on what we can expect with the latest release of the Skoda Fabia.
The Skoda Fabia hasn’t seen many changes over the last three generations. It has always been a constant and very steady option in the small hatchback range, but with the latest changes it looks like things are about to change. Based on the same mechanical elements as the Audi A1, SEAT Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo it will be featuring a striking new look and a sophisticated interior. But it won’t be coming away from some of the constet fundamental elements that Skoda buyers have grown used to such as a decent price point, an economical range and compact vehicle.
What to expect with the engine?
There are no electric versions of the Skoda Fabia and any keen eyes will notice that there are no diesel versions either. Instead the main engine option will be a turbocharged 1.0 litre petrol with various powertrains. The engine is going to be punchy and quick while still giving you the economy you have grown accustomed to.
What to expect from the interior and features?
When it comes to the style and interior, the new Fabia has borrowed elements from the bigger Scala and Octavia hatchback models. The exterior will be a big step forward for the Fabia in terms of looks but the interior could potentially be unrecognizable from past generation facelifts. You can expect a large and clear digital display with the latest infotainment and connectivity features that you would expect with more expensive Skoda models. There will be much more cabin space for occupants matching rivals such as the SEAT Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo, which are two of the roomiest cars in this area.
What to expect in other areas?
One of the key factors customers look for when buying a small hatchback city car is not only good economy but also reliability, and this vehicle will score highly in that area. The Skoda brand has a reputation for selling reliable and reasonably priced cars in a market that can be saturated with similar vehicles for more money. The new Skoda Fabia is certainly going to become more of a rival, not just for economy and reliability but also in styling and advanced features. It is becoming more on par with some of the competitor vehicles out there and will surprise many longstanding and loyal Skoda customers as well as attract new buyers.
With its smaller engine capacity with punchy powertrains, you will find that the Skoda Fabia is cheap to run, and is great when it comes to road tax and insurance premiums. There really isn’t much to disappoint when it comes to the 2021 release of the Skoda Fabia.
