The latest ŠKODA Fabia Estate combines the sharp lines of the third-generation Fabia Hatch with the increased practicality offered by the added passenger space and load capacity of an estate car. Offering more space and style than its predecessor, the new Fabia Estate represents an exciting addition to the range.
The third-generation SKODA Fabia Estate benefits from the application of the brand’s new design language. Sharp, muscular lines encase a car which is noticeably wider and longer than the previous version. Whilst Fabia Estates of old can’t be faulted for their practicality or performance, the increased load space could be seen to come with a compromise on the aesthetics of the Hatch. This is no longer the case, with the new Fabia Estate offering head-turning looks for the first time. The redesigned headlights, integrating seamlessly into the angular grille, are the most notable success, with optional daytime running lights lending the car increased dynamism.
The dashboard arrangement of the Fabia Estate is identical to the revised clean lines of the Hatch, with intuitive controls and an uncluttered layout. The floor of the boot has been lowered for easier access and the load space is wider, offering increased practicality for those occasions when you need to shift large objects. With the seats up, you’ll find 530 litres of space, a figure which climbs to 1,395 litres with the seats folded down. Interestingly, you’ll find more headroom for the driver and front passenger, despite the fact that the new Fabia Estate is lower than the previous model.
The Fabia Estate is available in S, SE and SE L trim levels, each offering varying levels of equipment as standard.
As with the new-generation Hatch, the Fabia Estate is available with a variety of petrol and diesel engine options. The three-cylinder 1.0 MPI unit offers excellent reliability and frugal fuel economy, whilst the 1.2 TSI is more responsive, whether you opt for 90PS or 110PS options. The lowest levels of fuel consumption are provided by the 1.4 TDI, a turbo diesel engine which offers up to 83.1 MPG combined with plenty of pulling power thanks to excellent torque levels, with 90PS and 105PS options available.
