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.

Read on to learn how Skoda has kept the Fabia fresh.
