Among all compact hatchbacks, the Fabia Hatch stands out as one of the most special. It is packed full of clever features, including under the bonnet where a responsive and refined engine leads your enjoyment at the wheel. As a Motability Scheme motorist you will value the car’s comfortable and supportive cabin, and you can depend on it to stay mobile.
The Fabia appeals to the eye no matter which angle you view it from. The front gets a sloping bonnet which ends at narrow headlamps that perfectly integrate with the grille. Meanwhile, each wing includes a sharp fold stretching from front to back which draws your attention to the sloping rear. The five-door shape makes it easy for your passengers to access the back bench, or if you need to grab luggage that is stored here when the seats are folded flat.
Inside there is more space than you might expect to find. There is also clear evidence of ŠKODA’s unquestionable build quality, as premium materials feature on every surface. This quality isn’t lost if you require adaptations to the cabin, and many of them are included within your lease payment. Pedal modifications, electronic accelerators and steering aids are all possible, to help you drive with complete comfort and stay safe on the road.
ŠKODA has completely redesigned the engine line-up offered with the new Fabia Hatch to make each unit smoother and more economical. The 1.2-litre TSI is turbo charged for sprightly acceleration, while the MPI petrol is lightweight and reliable. If diesel is your preference, there’s also a TDI producing 90PS or 105PS. The lower-powered TDI is the most frugal of all, returning as much as 78.6mpg combined. You can expect to make fewer stops at the pumps, and as fuel is one of the few expenses you need to cover, this makes the Fabia Hatch a cost-effective Motability choice.
The Czech firm designed the Fabia from the ground up with safety firmly in mind. It is built around a rigid body structure that absorbs energy well, and accompanying it are various intelligent active technologies. The standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) comprises Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), traction control (ASR) and more to prevent accidents in the first place. It’s little surprise then that the Fabia boasts a five-star Euro NCAP crash rating.
An abundance of infotainment technology has also been fitted by the manufacturer to enrich your experience in the vehicle. Bluetooth® enables you to receive calls hands-free, and a DAB digital radio gives access to more stations. Parking sensors, cruise control and hill hold control can all be added as optional extras too.
