The third-generation Skoda Fabia lobbed in 2015, sharing some of its underpinnings with its cousin the Volkswagen Polo.
Available in hatch and wagon body styles, the Fabia was offered with first-in-class safety technology such as city autonomous braking and a multi-collision braking system.
Skoda's SmartLink connectivity system that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard was another first for the light-car segment.
Powertrains included the EA211 1.2-litre four cylinder turbo-petrol in two states of tune, kicking off with the 66TSI offering 66kW/60Nm and the higher-spec 81TSI increasing power to 81kW/175Nm.
The Euro 6-compliant engine delivered official combined fuel use of 4.8L/100km for both variants.
