New 2018 Skoda Fabia prices and specs revealed

Skoda has revealed prices and specs for its facelifted Fabia supermini. The small car costs from £12,020 – with five trim grades, four engine options and two body styles to choose from. Order books are open now, with first customer deliveries due in September.

That (RRP) starting price buys you a 1.0 MPI hatchback in S guise. The range comprises S, SE, SE L, Monte Carlo and Colour Edition, with the priciest 1.0 TSI 110 DSG SE L estate costing £17,950. The line-up is now petrol only, with no diesel option available.

Step up to the Fabia SE L (£14,385) and you get sat-nav, a year"s subscription to Skoda"s online infotainment package, and extra interior lighting. Monte Carlo (from £15,985) cars add a touch of sport-inspired style, with a black front spoiler, black roof, black floor mats and carbon-effect dashboard trim. You also benefit from climate control, LED rear lights and rear electric windows.

In addition to all the extra kit, Fabia buyers are offered new options in the form of LED headlights (£960), 18-inch Vega alloy wheels (£600 on Monte Carlo cars only) and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Traffic Alert (£390). A new ‘Simply Clever’ feature has been bundled in too – the ice scraper hidden in the fuel filler cap now incorporates a gauge for measuring tyre tread depth.

The Estate model commands a premium of between £800 and £1,200 depending on spec and engine. The Colour Edition is only available as a five-door hatch.

Previously, Skoda’s supermini was available with a 1.4-litre TDI unit in three states of tune, ranging from 74bhp to 104bhp. Now the line-up will consist solely of 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol cars. A naturally aspirated MPI engine comes with either 59bhp or 74bhp, while a newer, turbocharged TSI is also offered with two power outputs – 94bhp or 108bhp.

The most powerful engine in the line-up is the only one available with an automatic gearbox, being a typical Volkswagen Group seven-speed DSG. Skoda claims that the engines are now a smidgen more economical than before too, while both TSI units are fitted with a particulate filter.
