The all-new Fabia from Skoda will join the rest of the company`s fleet at the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show, starting next week, the model being highlighted prior to the event with updated news about engine power and interior features.
Performance wise, the 2017 Skoda Fabia has ditched the older 1.2-liter and has been tweaked with a new engine in the shape of the 1.0-liter three-cylinder TSI, also seen on the facelifted Rapid, meaning the same power configurations and torque – 94 horsepower and 160 Nm of torque, respectively 108 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque, the latter in the top of the line variant.
The new engine is hooked to a standard five-speed manual and an optional seven-speed DSG, coming with a better fuel-efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. Both the hatchback and the Combi variants are also faster from 0 to 100 km/h.
As for the suite of high-tech gizmos inside, these include the new Skoda Connect Services with Infotainment Online and Care Connect, with online info on traffic jams, petrol stations, weather, adding as well Emergency Call and Breakdown Call. The same system also allows drivers to remotely find out if the windows, doors or sunroof are closed.
As for the car`s safety features, the facelifted Fabia has also borrowed the same from the Rapid – ESC, Front Assist with City Emergency raking system, Adaptive Cruise Control, Multi-Collision Brake, Driver Alert fatigue detection, Speed Limited, Hill-Hold Control, electronic tire pressure monitor and so on.
Prices and other important features will be unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
