From the Ambition level upwards, you will find a chrome trim, restyled door handles and the front section of the dashboard is upholstered fabric with contrasting stitching.

The luggage compartment has been enlarged to 380 litres, big enough for a standard size pram and two hand luggage cases. By folding down the rear-seat backrests, you'll increase the boot's capacity to a full 1,190 litres.

There is a choice of five advanced and efficient EVO-generation petrol engines for The All-New Škoda Fabia. Škoda has not only increased the number of different engines available, but also the range of power outputs - from 48 kW(65 PS) to 110 kW(150 PS). For the first time the FABIA can be equipped with a larger, 50-litre fuel tank, allowing four of the five engines to cover more than 900 km in the WLTP cycle. A 15-mm-lower sports chassis with stiffer suspension is another option as is the Rough-Road package that offers 15mm more ground clearance.

All engines offered come from the EVO generation, meaning that they are even more economical than the predecessor units. The new range-topping engine is the 1.5 TSI with an output of 110kW(150 PS) and a 7-speed DSG as standard. Up to a power output of 70kW(95 PS), the FABIA comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox; for the 1.0 TSI producing 81 kW(110PS) there is a choice between 6-speed manual gearbox and a 7-speed DSG.
