6 REASONS TO CHOOSE THE FABIA HATCH


1: INDIVIDUALISATION

We respect the individual needs of all of our customers and do our best to accommodate them. And that is why we have left the most important aspect - how your car is going to look – entirely up to you and your imagination.

Colour Concept can be used to select varying combinations for the roof, the A-pillars, the side-mirror housing, and 16" alloy wheels.


2: SPACIOUSNESS

​The ŠKODA Fabia offers plenty of room for passengers and their luggage. The passenger compartment is a little longer and wider than before, and the driver and front passenger also have more headroom.

The luggage compartment has a capacity of 305 litres and is one of the largest in the segment.


3: SIMPLY CLEVER

​Wherever you look, you will find useful storage options, including clever compartments and ingenious holders. The net pockets on the sides of the front seats are great for storing small items.

4: SAFETY ASSISTS

The Fabia has adopted a clear stance on passenger and pedestrian safety. As a result, you will find on-board safety components that are usually the domain of cars in higher segments.

Front Assist with City Emergency Brake* is another on-board safety feature. It works with you to keep an eye on what is happening in front of the vehicle and can alert you to any impending danger. It is able to apply the brakes itself, thus mitigating the consequences of an accident or even averting one altogether.

Fatigue Detection^* monitors the movement of the driver through the steering wheel. If the Fabia senses signs of fatigue, it sends an audible alert and recommends to take a break with a message on the multifunctional display.

^Included in optional Premium Sports Pack. *Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver's responsibility of the vehicle.

5: CONNECTIVITY

Your car and smartphone are now in perfect sync. The SmartLink^ system delivers a seamless connection between your car and smartphone using Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ interfaces. Whether you want to select and listen to music on your smartphone or receive turn-by-turn directions, all of this is mirrored on the central display.

The Bolero infotainment unit is controlled via 6.5" touchscreen display, offering exceptional 800x480 resolution. The Bolero unit features a USB, SD-card slot and Bluetooth® compatibility as well as, displaying all Smartlink features. Furthermore, within the optional Premium Sports Pack, Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB+) allows the user to access a wide variety of digital stations, with crystal clear digital sound quality and information updates such as artist, song and news headlines.

6: VOLKSWAGEN GROUP TECHNOLOGY

You would expect to pay much more for a ŠKODA. Our vehicles are designed to exceed your expectations, not your budget. With Volkswagen Group technology, advanced fuel-efficient engines and timeless designs, they are filled with smart features for smart buyers.

We are committed to bringing simply clever innovations within reach and helping more Australians enjoy European quality.

Modern turbocharged engines with direct fuel injection – petrol TSI – achieve lower fuel consumption while retaining the driving dynamics. Thanks to the turbocharging, they have ample power in low rpm, where the engine is used for most of the time. In the lower rpm range, the engine is also quieter and features lower fuel consumption. Direct fuel injection enhances the efficiency of burning fuel and contributes to lower fuel consumption.


EXTERIOR

The Fabia Hatch marks the next step in the development of ŠKODA's design language. Fusing crystalline shapes, sharp lines and expressive practicality, the new Fabia maintains ŠKODA's rich history of building design-orientated cars. It sets a benchmark for expression, dynamism and style on the road.


THE FRONT

ŠKODA's distinctive logo, mounted precisely at the point of the car's centre, becomes the starting point from which the new Fabia's crystalline bonnet beading draws the eye over the entire front-end of the car.

THE HEADLIGHTS

The new ŠKODA Fabia's headlights are wide and precision cut, whilst remaining perfectly balanced with the grille - emphasising the front-end's visual strength. As a result the new Fabia has a stronger, wider road stance.

COLOUR CONCEPT

We respect the individual needs and requirements of all of our customers and we do our best to accommodate them. And that is precisely why we have left the most important aspect – how your car is going to look – entirely up to you and your imagination.

The optional Colour Concept for hatch can be used to select varying combinations for the roof, the A-pillars, the side-mirror housing, and 16" alloy wheels. Discover your favourite combination with our Fabia Visualiser.


INTERIOR

The Fabia's interior shines with high-end materials, precision and top workmanship. Interior designers placed a distinct emphasis on horizontal lines, making the interior of this small car appear spacious and self-assured. There is enough space for 5 occupants and their luggage. The interior passenger space is slightly longer and larger than the previous generation, providing both the driver and passengers with more headroom.


HIGH LEVEL OF STANDARD EQUIPMENT

Also included is a host of technology and comfort features as standard, including: 6 airbags, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake*, Multi-collision Brake, Green Tech including engine "Start-Stop", 6.5" Bolero infotainment unit with SmartLink^ smartphone connectivity including Apple CarPlay® and Android AutoTM, Bluetooth® connectivity and Rear View Camera*.

LUGGAGE COMPARTMENT

Hidden within the Fabia's clever design is exceptional luggage space. The Hatch boasts 305 litres of space. This phenomenal space becomes cavernous with the rear seats folded down, expanding to 1125 litres. Folding hooks are located in the boot to conveniently hang shopping bags.

LOADED WITH SIMPLY CLEVER FEATURES

The third-generation Fabia impresses with its spaciousness and even greater functionality. The range of numerous "Simply Clever" features makes ŠKODA's small car one of the most practical vehicles in its segment.


SAFETY WITHOUT COMPROMISE

Your driving safety is determined by a variety of factors. Outstanding attention to design and detail means you benefit from not only sophistication, but exceptional levels of safety for you and your loved ones. In addition to the essential prerequisites of safety such as the exceptionally strong body and excellent driving characteristics of the vehicle, the Fabia offers Front Assist with City Emergency Brake* and six airbags as standard across all models: driver and front passenger airbags, front side airbags and curtain airbags.

*Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver's responsibility of the vehicle.


FRONT ASSIST WITH CITY EMERGENCY BRAKE*

The Front Assist with City Emergency Brake* safety system monitors the area in front of the car and evaluates the distance, direction and speed of all nearby objects. Using predefined algorithms, it decides whether these objects pose a potential risk of collision and alerts the driver if the distance to object is insufficient – initially with a tone and an alert on the multifunctional display; followed by a warning jolt of the brakes. If the driver doesn't respond, the car will brake itself – all the way to a standstill if needed, helping to avoid a collision or reduce the severity of the accident. It can be turned off by the driver via the touchscreen.

*Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

REAR VIEW CAMERA

​Parking is made easier with a rear view camera standard on all models.


ESC WITH MULTI-COLLISION BRAKE

The ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is further enhanced with multi-collision braking; designed to provide effective assistance for the driver in the moments after an accident. Multi-collision Brake triggers automatic controlled braking once an initial collision has been detected so as to reduce the intensity of further accidents after a collision and can help prevent follow-on collisions with oncoming traffic.

FATIGUE DETECTION^*

​Fatigue Detection^ monitors the movement of the driver through the steering wheel. If the Fabia senses signs of fatigue, it sends an audible alert and recommends to take a break with a message on the multifunctional display.

^Included in the optional Premium Sports Pack.
*Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver's responsibility of the vehicle.
