Quick observations as a Fabia owner.

Love the painted roof + matching alloys + matching steering inserts
Are those audi style LED DRLs in the headlight?
The interior quality is great, as usual.

Nice to see 60:40 rear folding seat.
The rear parcel tray mechanism is still the same and will continue to be an annoyance.

Passenger airbag turn off button is kind of pointless. Why not put a sensor on the seat. We may turn it off and then forget to turn it on again.

No rear AC vent is kind of disappointing, but then I doubt the 1.2 would be able to run another blower anyway.

The steering rake reach adjust column badly fouls the leg and should have been removed.

The space is still good.

And lastly, we will not get the touchscreen system, because of price cutting. Lets see how Skoda fills that hole in the dash.

And lastly this is more of a facelift, atleast interior wise than an all new car.

Thats just what I could make out in 3 minutes.

The new Skoda Fabia, which is on sale only in overseas markets, has been given a five-star rating by Euro NCAP. Fourteen hatchbacks underwent the latest series of Euro NCAP crash tests, out of which the Fabia was the only one to secure five stars with the highest rating. It is now being endorsed as the safest small car (European market segments).

The Euro NCAP evaluation is based on the results of categories like passenger protection for adults and children, pedestrian protection and supporting safety systems. "With innovative safety systems and a comprehensive safety package, our new model is setting standards in its segment. Receiving the award for being the safest small car in the Euro NCAP crash tests confirms this once again," said Dr Frank Welsch, Skoda Board Member for Technical Development. The Skoda Fabia got top ratings from Euro NCAP in all four evaluation categories, namely passenger protection for adults, child safety, safety assistance systems and pedestrian protection. The highest score was given for the protection of infants up to 18 months.

In terms of safety features, the Fabia gets tech like cruise control and a multi-collision brake, which reduces the risk of a subsequent crash following a collision on the road. It also comes with optional hill assistance, driver fatigue recognition, speed limiter and electronic tyre pressure monitoring system. As for the airbags, there are six of them – front, side and head. A high-strength body and optimised crumple zones add to the safety blanket of the Fabia

Adding to the safety blanket are a high-strength body and optimised crumple zones.

Skoda unveils wacky looking Fabia pick-up concept

Worthersee in Austria is one city that has been hosting the annual gathering of Volkswagen and Skoda tuning enthusiasts for a long time now. Each year, fans from all over the world gather to see some pretty wacky concepts being unveiled by either Volkswagen or Skoda, and this year’s show is no exception. The latter brand has just unveiled a wacky looking pick-up version of its Fabia hatchback.

Labelled Funstar, this one-off pick-up was conceived by a team of young students at the Skoda Akademie vocational school. While based on the humble Fabia, the Funstar is a completely different looking vehicle and attracts a lot of attention, thanks to the metallic grey and green bodywork.

Underneath the fancy exterior lies Skoda’s familiar 1.2 TSI turbocharged engine with 120bhp of power. It is paired with a 7-speed DSG gearbox and benefits from a new exhaust system for a louder exhaust note.

The Fabia Funstar will make its public debut next month in Worthersee, alongside a few more equally wacky concept cars from the Volkswagen group.

One of ŠKODA’s best-sellers returns with a new design. It will make its first live appearance during March at the International Motor Show 2018 in Geneva.

Even now, though, you can now take a first look at how the successful compact model’s new look was changed.

In addition to updated design, the revised ŠKODA FABIA will for the first time offer LED headlights and LED rear lights along with new ‘Simply Clever’ features and new technological solutions.
