Czech automaker has long teased teaser of the new Skoda Fabia 3rd generation, but in the middle of August 2014 still has declassified appearance model, the world premiere of which took place at the Paris Motor Show in early October. The design of Skoda Fabia 2016 in a new body as a whole remained recognizable, although the design of the exterior has more sharp edges, and a number of elements such as the grille and lighting fixtures, made in the style of Radid and Octavia models. In the company say that the appearance of Skoda Fabia III is made in the style of the VisionC concept, first shown at the motor show in Geneva in 2014. Initially it was expected that the basis of Skoda Fabia (2016) went to a shortened Volkswagen modular platform MQB-A, on which the later will be built VW Polo and Seat Ibiza, but in fact it turned out that the new product is based on a modernized chassis predecessor . In comparison with the latter, hatchback reduced length of 8 mm (up to 3992), increased by the width of 90 mm (1 732) and the height decreased by 30 millimeters (up to 1468). The volume of the luggage compartment of the new Skoda Fabia in 2016 is 330 liters (+ 15), and when folded back sofa backside compartment increases to 1150 liters. Saloon car, despite the reduction in size, has become even more spacious than that of the previous generation model. The architecture of the front panel as a whole remained the same, but its design is completely changed. Plus, the interior has got a variety of niches for storage and equipment included in MirrorLink function.
As for the powertrain, the four petrol and three diesel engine for the Fabia 3rd generation provided. The base is the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine capacity of 60 hp, and the range will be located on top of a 1.4-liter turbo “four” the TSI with 140 returns in force. All engines in the “heavy fuel” represent a completely new three-cylinder unit with 1.4-liter aluminum block, available in power outputs from 74 to 104 hp Combine engines, as before, will be either the mechanics or a “robot” DSG. And in the 2015th will be “green” with a modification of the Greenline 74-horsepower diesel engine, spending an average of 3.1 per hundred liters of fuel. To reach this indicator helps tires with reduced rolling resistance and specific elements of the body, improving the aerodynamics of the hatch. But let the “charged” modification of the Skoda Fabia 2016 do not plan to, because the sale of the former generation Fabia RS were at a low level due to too high a cost. But the Fabia Combi of the line has not disappeared, despite the presence of a practical model of the Rapid Spaceback. New Fabia started in early 2015, but pricing information is not available.
