Skoda Set to Launch New Fabia Estate


The new model Skoda Fabia Estate is being unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, replacing the current estate version. It is then set to be on sale early in 2008.

The new Skoda Fabia estate is slightly longer and higher that the previous model, giving a larger interior. Capacity in the boot is now 480 litres plus, when the rear seats are folded flat, a total of 1,460 litres of storage space is available.

It will be available in a choice of 6 engine types – 3 each of petrol and diesel. Petrol engines start with a 1.2 litre 12V HTP, followed by a 1.4 litre 16V and a 1.6 litre 16V - giving 70bhp/85bhp and 105bhp respectively. The choice of diesel engines is a 1.4 litre TDI PD (70bhp), a 1.4 litre TDI PD (80bhp) and a 1.9 litre TDI PD (105bhp).

The new Skoda Fabia estate will offer numerous clever features including a storage tray under the floor, securing hooks, a range of storage trays and a boot roller cover with automatic quick release.

The previous model proved very popular, with 630,000 models sold worldwide and the new model will be competing with the likes of the due to be released Renault Clio Sport Tourer and the Peugeot 207 SW.
