Skoda announces prices for updated Fabia

Skoda has announced the prices and specs for its facelifted Fabia supermini, which will go on sale next month.

The new Fabia undercuts its sibling cars – the Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo – with prices starting from £12,840.

The facelifted model receives more advanced equipment as standard, as well as new safety assists and a revised look.

Skoda has axed the 1.4-litre diesel from the Fabia line-up, with engine options limited to the 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit in three power outputs – 74bhp, 94bhp and 108bhp.

All models – starting with entry-level S trim – come with LED daytime running lights, as well as automatic emergency braking and a trip computer.

SE brings front fog lights, 15-inch alloy wheels and electric windows. A ‘Colour Edition’ is available, which builds on the spec of the SE with the choice of 16-inch alloys in white, black or silver.

Next up is the SE-L, which now features satellite navigation, one-year’s access to the online infotainment system, 16-inch wheels and additional interior lighting – this is on top of the spec the outgoing SE-L has already – and is priced from £15,205.

Range-topping Monte Carlo is the sportiest trim, with the model coming with a styling package including a black front spoiler, a black roof and carbon-effect dashboard trim. It also adds climate control, LED rear lights and rear-electric windows. Monte Carlo starts from £16,785.

As well as the five-door hatchback, the Fabia is also available as a more practical estate, with these models costing roughly £1,000 more across the range.

A range of options are also available, including adaptive cruise control, LED headlights and a host of new safety kit, such as blind spot monitoring and rear traffic alert for reversing out of car park spaces.

The revised Fabia will reach showrooms next month.
