The Fabia is Skoda’s best-selling model next to the Octavia and has sold more than 3-million models as of 2015. To keep a ball that large rolling at full momentum, Skoda found it necessary to redesign the Fabia for the 2015 model year. For the third generation, the Fabia has evolved into a car that sits lower and wider and has shed even more weight compared to its predecessor. On the outside, the car has wider headlights and a wide air dam to go with a sleek side profile and a more squared rear end. Inside, the car has a wide feel to it, with more passenger space and increased cargo room. There is a new infotainment system based on VW’s MIB technology that brings smartphone connectivity via Mirrorlink and SmarGate connectivity protocols – a first for any Skoda. Under the hood, there is a choice of 2 gasoline engines tuned to deliver between 59 horsepower and 1098 horsepower and one diesel engine that delivers 88 horsepower or 103 horsepower. Not bad for a small hatchback.

We would like to see better interior materials as well as a better fit and finish, but the car starts out below $17,000 so at that price point, you can only expect so much. The competition is strong too, with models like the Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Up, and a handful of other tiny hatchbacks that anxiously compete for the title of best seller in this competitive segment. As the story goes, Skoda hopes that the new Fabia will continue to be a big seller like the first- and second-gen models, from an initial standpoint, it looks like it Skoda might be in some luck. Be that as it may, check out the full review below to see how it competes in its very competitive market.

EuroNCAP Announces Best In Class Cars Of 2014

EuroNCAP Announces Best In Class Cars Of 2014

Dozens of new cars get tested each year by the main European crash testing organization, EuroNCAP, but only a small percentage of those vehicles achieve truly high scores. This happens in part because EuroNCAP has kept improving its testing procedures almost on a yearly basis, with the newest requirements in 2014 involving autonomous emergency braking (AEB) systems and other technologies part of the "Safety Assist" criteria, which is a branch of active safety.

A couple of novelties happened during the crash tests that took place in 2014, with EuroNCAP testing no less than five models available with either full-electric or hybrid propulsion. The second premiere was probably the fact that all the so-called Large Family cars tested in 2014 achieved the top five star rating, with the only difference between them being the overall score. With that being said, EuroNCAP has just released a list of the five highest performing cars in terms of overall score, spread around five different model categories: Supermini, Small Off-Road 4x4, Small MPV, Small Family Car and Large Family Car.

As it happens, only one Supermini achieved a five-star rating, and therefore the highest overall score in its category, despite no less than 14 cars in its segment having been crash tested during 2014. Pretty much the same situation happened in the Small MPV category, where only one car received the highest rating — over half of the vehicles tested scoring a rather shameful three stars. Interestingly enough, the Tesla Model S was surpassed by the Lexus NX hybrid as far as the best-scoring alternatively fueled vehicles go, albeit by only a small margin. The five best scoring cars of 2014 at EuroNCAP are the Skoda Fabia, Land Rover Discovery Sport, Volkswagen Golf Sportsvan, Nissan Qashqai and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

2011 Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo

2011 Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo

Skoda is celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the Monte Carlo Rally and the 110th year anniversary of the brand’s motorsport efforts with the launch of the special edition Fabia Monte Carlo Edition. This new version made its first public appearance at Rallye Monte Carlo back in January and has now been introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

While we’re not completely enamored with these type of cars, we do have to give the boys over at Skoda some serious love for the way they designed this special edition Fabia.The powertrain may not be on the powerful side, but Skoda certainly makes up for it by designing the special edition Fabia with a very nice red and black two-tone finish, highlighting an aggressive rally-inspired exterior that completely masks the subdued engine under its bonnet.

It may not be the fastest car out of the block, but for a car that you can take to the city for some nice, little joy-riding, the Skoba Fabia Monte Carlo is about as good an option as any B-car segment vehicle.

2010 Skoda Fabia RS IRC Special Edition

2010 Skoda Fabia RS IRC Special Edition

Skoda’s 2010 IRC Championship win may not have gotten a ton of headlines from the press, but it certainly hasn’t stopped the automaker from releasing a special edition Fabia RS that was created to celebrate the automaker’s title win in the IRC, or as some folks would call it, the breeding ground and stepping stone towards the more famous WRC.

For their special edition vehicle, Skoda decked the Fabia RS with a Rally Green exterior paint with racing livery all around it and stickers taken from the official championship-winning S2000 rally car. There’s also the addition of a white roof to complement the Rally Green body color, as well as a set of 17-inch alloy wheels to finish off the dazzling look of special edition Fabia RS.

As for performance, Skoda gave the car a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 177 horsepower and 184 lb/ft of torque and is mated to a 7-speed DSG transmission that accelerates from 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds with a top speed of 139 mph.

The special edition Fabia RS IRC has yet to be given a price tag by Skoda, but according to the company, the model will only come in limited quantities with only 200 units being built.

Skoda Fabia Cabrio in the works?

Skoda Fabia Cabrio in the works?

Skoda Fabia is one of the most successful models on the European market. It comes with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines, with power ranging from 58 HP to 103 HP. Now what do you think would happen if Skoda decided to bring forth a convertible version for the popular Fabia? The Czechs are actually really taking this type of modification into consideration, but the fact is, outside of Europe, a convertible model isn’t high on the list of demands and Skoda will have a tough time recuperating their production costs.

Of course, if built, the Skoda Fabia Cabrio would share the same platform with the future Audi A1 Cabrio, making it a cheaper alternative. The convertible version will be offered with a choice of both TDI and FSI engines.

Skoda is expected to make a final decision in the next year. Now, if Volkswagen has plans to produce a Golf Cabrio then some might say that they should go ahead and give the Fabia Cabrio a try. It should prove to be a cool little car in Europe.

2009 Skoda Fabia

2009 Skoda Fabia

The new generation Fabia hatchback made its world debut in 2007 at the Geneva Motor Show. With both the passenger and luggage compartments sized generously, this five-door small-class vehicle is even roomier that its predecessor. The shape is very typical of the Skoda brand – it certainly guarantees the new Fabia a unique position in the market and shows clearly that the new vehicle is a member of the Škoda family.

The new generation of Fabias is again one of the foremost representatives of the small car segment. It offers plenty of room not just to the driver and front seat passenger, but also passengers in the rear. Once again, the car can also boast of a very generous luggage area.

The Fabia has grown longer (3992 mm) and taller (1498 mm), and again is one of the largest in the supermini car segment. The dynamic and confident front section of the car clearly testifies to the fact that it is part of the Škoda family and a particularly close relative of the Roomster, a model with which it shares most parts – from the original headlights all the way down to the mudguards.

A three-cylinder 1.2 HTP engine is available with power outputs of 44 kW or 51 kW and comes equipped with a main catalytic converter and two lambda sensors. The four-cylinder 1.4 16V/63 kW and 1.6 16V/77 kW engines have two catalitic converters and two lambda sensors. All engines include an on-board EOBD self-diagnostic device.

The range of diesel engines is comprised of two three-cylinder 1.4 turbo diesels with power outputs of 51 kW and 59 kW, and one four-cylinder 1.9 TDI PD/77 kW. All engines meet the emissions limits imposed by the EU 4 standard. Diesel particulate filters (DPF) are also available for both of the more powerful engines.
