The new 2021 Skoda Fabia is cleverer than ever.

Depending on the trim level, the fourth generation of the flourishing model offers up to 43 of the brand's signature Simply Clever features, which have earned the Czech car manufacturer respect for making customers' everyday lives on the road easier. Five of these features are entirely new to the Skoda range, while eight others now feature in the 2021 Skoda Fabia for the first time. In addition, new accessories such as the removable cup holder between the front seats complement Skoda classics like the ice scraper with tyre tread depth gauge located inside the fuel filler flap, the car park ticket holder on the A-pillar and the umbrella inside the driver's door.

Depending on the trim level, the fourth-generation Skoda Fabia now offers up to 43 of these clever features – more than ever. They include numerous Skoda models such as the ice scraper with tyre tread depth gauge located inside the fuel filler flap, the car park ticket holder on the A-pillar and the umbrella inside the driver's door.

Skoda offers five Simply Clever ideas for the new Skoda Fabia for the first time.

Skoda is offering five of its ingenious Simply Clever details for the new FABIA for the first time. For example, an innovative, flexible storage compartment is available as an option for the boot; it's connected to a side panel, has a space-saving foldaway design and can be pulled out when needed to hold items in place inside the boot. A removable cup holder between the front seats provides more flexibility in the interior. A new attachment clip for a credit card or a car park ticket and an elastic pen holder in the centre console's storage compartment helps keep the interior tidy. Passengers in the rear can safely store small items in a box on the centre tunnel, which is also available as an option. The box fits neatly between the centre console and the rear seat, where it locks into place. The list of Simply Clever ideas also includes a sun visor, which is available as an accessory for the optional panoramic roof. It can be folded to a third of its size in a few easy steps and stowed under the boot cover when not in use. 

2021 Skoda Fabia

A total of eight Simply Clever details from the higher Skoda model series have found their way into the new Skoda Fabia and are available for the first time in the popular small car. These include a multifunctional bag that can be hooked under the boot cover. This produces the perfect storage space for coats or jackets and can hold luggage weighing up to 3.5 kilograms. The easy-to-reach pockets for smartphones on the front seats' backrests will already be familiar from the Skoda Octavia and Skoda ENYAQ iV, while card and coin compartments in the glove compartment help keep it secured. The backrest of the front passenger seat can be folded down to allow particularly long objects to be transported. In the Style trim line, a USB-C port on the interior mirror is possible for the first time as an option for the Skoda Fabia. This can be used, for example, to supply power to a dashcam to avoid the cable obstructing the driver's view. The reading lights in the rear can be conveniently operated from the front – ideal for children travelling in the rear seats who are too small to switch on the lights themselves. Smartphones can be charged thanks to the Phone Box inductively. Also available as an option is a load sill protector that can be folded out when the boot lid is open. It prevents paintwork scratches, while its reflectors provide additional safety while loading the vehicle.

The all-new 2021 Skoda Fabia is offered with a choice of five drivetrains from the Volkswagen Group's EVO engine generation, all of which meet the Euro 6d emissions standard. The two 1.0 MPI engines now deliver 48 kW (65 hp) and 59 kW (80 hp). A manual 5-speed gearbox is installed for both engines and the 1.0 TSI with 70 kW (95 hp). The 1.0 TSI with 81 kW (110 hp) comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox or 7-speed DSG. The most powerful engine for the new Skoda Fabia is the 1.5 TSI with 110 kW (150 hp) and a 7-speed DSG. The engines and transmissions for the new 2021 Skoda Fabia are assembled in the Czech Republic. The MPI engines and 1.0 TSI powertrains are produced in Mladá Boleslav, and the manual transmissions also leave the assembly line at Skoda's main plant. The 7-speed DSG is manufactured at Skoda's Vrchlabí plant. For the first time, the 2021 Skoda Fabia can be purchased with an optional 50-litre fuel tank instead of the standard 40-litre tank, which, combined with four of the five engines, enables a maximum range of more than 900 kilometres in the WLTP cycle.@via Car Division.
