ŠKODAŠKODA said its engineers are putting the finishing touches to the fourth-generation FABIA.

According to the carmaker, its employees are simulating various driving situations, putting the new small car through its paces and fine-tuning it on a secret test track.

To ensure the best possible driving safety, optimum aerodynamics and maximum driving comfort, computer simulations are also being used.

ŠKODA AUTO further said it has once again improved the active and passive safety of the new FABIA and expanded the range of assistance systems and connectivity services available.

Safety & Comfort

The safety and comfort features of the new FABIA’s also include assistance systems that were previously reserved exclusively for higher vehicle classes.

Emission values and fuel consumption of the new model have been significantly addressed when compared to the predecessor because of several ingenious aerodynamic refinements.

Also, the drag coefficient has been reduced from cw 0.32 to cw 0.28, thus making the FABIA the best in the small car segment, said the carmaker.

The new small car undergoes intensive testing a few weeks before its world premiere. Safety and aerodynamic optimisation are the top priorities.

Recently, ŠKODA offered a first glimpse of its new vehicle KUSHAQ’s interior in an official design sketch.

As with other models from the leading automaker, the spacious interior typical of the brand features a large, free-standing infotainment display.

The ŠKODA KUSHAQ will be officially launched later this month and it is the first of four models from the ŠKODA and Volkswagen brands as part of the INDIA 2.0 product campaign.
