The new Skoda Fabia is here. This is the fourth generation of the car and has developed quite well over the years. The latest one looks completely fresh. This article will deal with 5 things that you should know about the new Skoda Fabia. Let’s go.
New Platform & Dimensions
The new Skoda Fabia is based on the brand’s current modular platform, the MQB A0. Being based on this platform helps it add more space inside the cabin, making it the most spacious car in its segment. The car crosses the 4-meter length mark for the first time by attaining a total length of 4108mm, a width of 1780mm and a height of 1459mm. Based on this platform, the car’s boot space has now increased to 380 litres, compared to the 350-litre boot on the previous one.
The new Fabia follows the latest design language that is being used on other Skoda cars these days. The design on the new one clearly resembles that of the upcoming Skoda Kushaq. Sleek headlight and taillight units on the new one get the LED treatment. Elements like the rear spoiler, the bumpers and the alloy wheels have been specifically designed to reduce the aerodynamic drag, which will result in a much smoother ride with controlled NVH levels.
The interiors on the new one also look really simple yet modern. The addition of contrasting elements in the interior enhances the upmarket appeal of the car. The car gets a two-spoke steering wheel, the same that we will get to see on the Skoda Kushaq as well. The car gets a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, the first one for the Fabia. It also gets a 9.2-inch large floating touchscreen in the centre which looks more appealing, thanks to the sleek dashboard design. Along with these, the Fabia can now be had with a heated windscreen and steering wheel, taking the cabin convenience even further.
The car now comes loaded with features that will make the overall car extremely user-friendly. Dual-zone climate control, ambient lighting, LED reading lamps, paddle shifters, Virtual Cockpit, connected car technology and wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay. The car now gets options of three infotainment units, with Amundsen being the top-of-the-line one. The Amundsen unit comes with enhanced modern features like Laura digital voice assistant, gesture controls and online-backed navigation.
The car now gets up to 9 airbags which can be crucial during the event of crashes and accidents. The addition of 9 airbags enhances the overall safety factor of the car. Along with this, the car now gets Skoda’s Travel Assist and Park Assist features. Travel Assist is the collection of assistance features like adaptive cruise control, lane assist, hands-on detect to sense driver’s contact to the steering wheel and blind-spot detect. With Park Assist, the car can take over the steering wheel when parking in tight spots. Also, with Manoeuvre Assist, the car will automatically brake upon sensing obstacles in front or behind the car. Traffic sign recognition and pedestrian safety features have also been made available on the new one.
