Skoda Fabia


The Skoda Fabia is a supermini car produced by Czech manufacturer Skoda Auto since 1999. It is the successor of the Skoda Felicia, which was discontinued in 2001. The Fabia was available in hatchback, estate (named Fabia Combi) and saloon (named Fabia Sedan) body styles at launch, and since 2007, the second generation is offered in hatchback and estate versions.
The second generation Fabia (internal type code 5J) was officially presented at the Geneva Auto Show in March 2007 and was sold from April 2007. It still uses the PQ24 platform. The car is however slightly larger than its predecessor and takes styling cues from the new Roomster leisure activity vehicle. The exterior of the two cars, Roomster and Fabia, were designed simultaneously to create synergies by Thomas Ingenlath and Peter Wouda.
For the launch of the new Fabia, Skoda UK commissioned an advertising campaign called Cake, featuring the making of a Skoda Fabia car out of cake which swapped rivets for raisins, metal for marzipan and spark plugs for sugar. The soundtrack for the advert was "My Favorite Things", from The Sound of Music.
Skoda India launched the latest version of Fabia in 2007. The car was well praised by Indian motor magazines, but it couldn't live up to the hype created by the previous generation Octavia. Fabia has not succeeded in this market due to dealer problems, steep prices and Skoda trying to position itself as a luxury marque.
Skoda India has decided to bring in more powerful engines at better prices and taken strict measures to improve dealer quality levels and curb excessive service costs.
The initial petrol engine lineup was a mixture of newer engines from Audi and some carry overs from the outgoing model. The base 1.2 remains the same (44 kW) while the higher powered version has its power output upped to 70 PS (51 kW). There was only a single 1.4 litre 16v petrol on this model, producing 85 PS (63 kW). The range topping petrol engine was the 1.6 16v engine producing 105 PS (77 kW) . There was also an option to link this engine to a 6 speed tip tronic transmission sourced from Aisin.
Diesel engines consisted of the same 70 PS (51 kW) and 80 PS (59 kW) 1.4 TDI units from before. The range topping diesel was a 1.9 TDI producing 105 PS (77 kW).
As of 2010, the engine line-up was updated along with a face lift, this was introduced at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. 1.2 litre TSi turbocharged petrol engines replaced the previous 1.4 and 1.6 litre engines, providing significant improvement to fuel consumption and corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions. The Aisin automatic transmission previously used was also replaced with the 7-speed DSG system (optional on 77 kW (105 PS; 103 hp) 1.2 TSi models), providing a reduction of over 30% in CO2 emissions for the 77 kW (105 PS; 103 hp) automatic derivative (compared to the previous 1.6 litre). Diesel engines were updated to the common rail system and 4-valve technology.
