  • Third generation Fabia arrives
  • 1.2 litre hatchback and wagon available
  • Hatch priced from $15,990* (1.2 litre manual)

Skoda Australia has released the new generation Fabia hatch and wagon with a host of standard features, including Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and SmartLink™ smartphone connectivity including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Skoda Fabia is available locally with two engine and transmission combinations – the 1.2-litre 66kW petrol engine paired with a five-speed manual transmission, or the higher output 1.2-litre 81kW petrol engine paired with a seven-speed DSG transmission. Both combinations feature a start/stop system and brake energy recuperation.

Fabia is the second Skoda model to feature the new design 'language', as premiered in the Octavia.

The Front Assist with City Emergency Brake uses a radar sensor to continually measure the distance to the traffic ahead. Whenever the distance is too small, Front Assist intervenes – from warnings to automatic emergency stopping.

The radar sensor integrated into the car’s front end permanently monitors distance to traffic ahead. As soon as this distance becomes insufficient, the Front Assistant intervenes at one of four levels to prevent or minimise the effect of a collision. The shorter the distance becomes, the stronger the intervention.


The new Fabia offers convenient connectivity with smartphones via the SmartLink™ system. As part of the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Infotainment Matrix (MIB), the SmartLink™ function allows users to connect their mobile phone to the vehicle’s display with the ability to use the mobile’s apps and programmes using the vehicle’s interface. SmartLink™ integrates both Apple’s Carplay and Android’s Android Auto software for a seamless experience.

Optional "Colour Concepts"

The Fabia hatch is available in a number of optional Colour Concept packages for the interior and exterior of the vehicle with a selection of alternating body, roof and wheel colours.
