Paris Motor Show 2014: Skoda launches new Fabia Estate

Published 02 October 2014

Skoda has revealed the all-new Fabia Estate at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Called the Fabia Combi in Europe, the new model is up to 17 per cent more efficient than the outgoing car and has emissions from 82g/km. It will go on sale in early 2015 and should be priced from around £12,000.

Skoda claims the boot is the ‘largest in the segment’ at 530 litres, expandable to 1395 litres by folding the rear row of seats. There is more storage space in the cabin than in the outgoing car, with extra bottle storage, plus a waste bin and various nets and cubbies. There’s a range of Skoda ‘Simply Clever’ touches too, including an ice scraper in the fuel filler cap.

The engine range consists of six options. There are three petrol options without power outputs from 75PS to 110PS, plus three diesel engines with outputs from 75PS to 105PS.

New technology includes a new infotainment system which pairs with your phone and gives access to apps in the car. There’s also gadgetry normally reserved for larger cars, including automatic wipers and keyless entry.

I've often thought that even if has been an excellent workhorse the Fabia estate has never looked quite right, but these pictures show that this has been rectified, what we have here is a smart looking car that could easily have an Audi badge screwed on it and no one would be any the wiser

Currently have a Roomster which has been completely faultless but would have liked it to be a tad longer. I am soon going to seriously look at this estate as my next new car. With the more economical engines and hopefully that extra length I am looking for in what is still quite a small car, this version of the Fabia may well be my ideal.
