Future Skoda Fabia (2021)


In 2021, it will be time for the Skoda Fabia to hand over the baton to a whole new generation. What do we already know about him?

New Skoda Fabia (2021) – Seven years after its launch, the Czech city car will be completely renewed. She who once had the honor of inaugurating the new Volkswagen group platforms, had to resolve in 2014 to bring up the rear. The current Fabia left the technological first to its cousins Volkswagen Polo and Seat Ibiza. It will be the same in 2021, with the arrival of the all new model.

State-of-the-art platform

In 2017, the German group entrusted the launch of the brand new MQB-A0 base to the fifth installment of Seat Ibiza, soon joined by the sixth generation Volkswagen Polo. As a result, the third thief of the city-dweller family, left three years earlier, was the big forgotten of this modernization project. It therefore took four more years for the Skoda Fabia to refresh its technical base and take advantage of new equipment. In 2021, its lifting of the veil will coincide, more or less, with the facelifts of these same cousins.

The station wagon will take a break …

In terms of style, the new Fabia will take over the recent character traits displayed by the current range. Without a doubt, his gaze will be more aggressive, with a lot ofwater angles and multiplying the bodywork pinches. Never available as a 3-door variant, since its launch in 1999, it could definitely be content with two additional opening, and turn its back on the estate silhouette. Unfortunately, this type of city mover has not had the wind in its sails for a few years, gradually being replaced by SUVs. So much so that the current Fabia remains the the only representative of this forgotten segment, via its Combi version.

Big step forward, techno side

The interior of the new Skoda Fabia should be modernized as much in terms of style as ergonomics. The central aerators, so far housed at the top of the cockpit, will likely migrate under the new generation touchscreen tablet. A digital panel that should finally be supported by a screen housed behind the steering wheel, instead of analog meters. In addition, new safety and comfort equipment are also scheduled.

Discreet hybridization

Under the hood of this Skoda Fabia “4”, the range of engines will taste only unleaded. The novelty could come from the48V light hybridization, as foreseen in the bowels of the current Polo and Ibiza, phases 2. A true hybrid system, like the Renault Clio E-Tech and Toyota Yaris Hybrid, does not seem to be on the agenda yet. It is also not expected that an RS variant, already absent from the current catalog, will come to garnish that of the next.

Prix ​​Skoda Fabia

Launched in the during the year 2021, the new Skoda Fabia should slightly revise its price list. The bar of 16 000 € should be outdated, entry level.
