Engines & technology

1.2 HTP (High Torque Performance) engines with variants 40 and 47 kW, are highly suited to city traffic conditions, they have exceptional resilience and low fuel consumption. For the drivers that prefer a more dynamic driving style, the Skoda Fabia has the 1.4/55 kW (also automatic transmission) or the 1.4/74 kW. If you prefer sports style driving, you will certainly be satisfied with the powerful 2.0/85 kW engine.

We have an excellent offer for diesel fans. They can choose from the popular and economical 1.4 TDI PD (pump-nozzle technology) with variants 51 and 59 kW or the dynamic 1.9 TDI PD/74 kW with the same technology of high-pressure injection and adjustable turbo blade geometry. With the Fabia RS you get a real predator, the turbo diesel 1.9 TDI PD/96 kW engine!

If you are one of those drivers that are used to classic manual transmission, choose the mechanical gearbox, which is standard for all the offered engines.

Vehicle operation comfort may be increased by the 4-speed automatic transmission (for the 1.4/55 kW engine). It makes driving in the dense city traffic more comfortable and adapts the gear-change to your driving style.
