Skoda FabiaTue, 12 Dec 2006
Succeeding the first Fabia that helped revive the Czech brand with 1.5million sales comes its second iteration. Blending the original car with the more recent Roomster, the new Fabia sports two-box packaging with a wrap-around glass graphic. And though the car has grown, it still slips in under 4 meters.
Rear knee and headroom remain especially generous, while passengers there also benefit from head airbags. Other technology includes Bluetooth connectivity, six-speed Tiptronic transmission and the de rigueur iPod plug. Under the hood, one can opt from seven engines, four gas (60PS -105PS) and three diesel (70PS - 105PS). The world launch of the Fabia will take place in Geneva next year. Key dimensions are: length 3992mm, width 1642mm, height 1498mm. Trunk volume is 300 liters rising to 1163 liters seats folded.
