According to Skoda, the 2015 Fabia Combi will offer a 530 liters boot capacity and an impressive 1,395 liters with the back seat folded down, which is the largest in its segment. Compared with the previous version, the volume increased by 25 liters.
Moreover, the 2015 Fabia Combi is 10 mm longer, 90 mm wider and 31 mm lower than its predecessor. When it comes to design, the front end is identical to the hatchback model while the rear is completely new and features the typical Skoda C shape taillights with contrasting dark edging. The 2015 Fabia Combi will be offered with a choice of three petrol and three diesel engines.
Power output of the petrol engines ranges from 75 hp (55 kW) to 110 hp (81 kW). Meanwhile the new three-cylinder diesel range offers between 75 hp (55 kW) and 105 hp (77 kW). Engines are offered as standard with a manual transmission, while as an option Skoda offers the DSG gearbox. All engines meet the EU6 emission standards and come with Start-Stop System and brake energy recovery.
The most fuel-efficient model will be the Fabia Combi Greenline, which will arrive in 2015, powered by a 1.4-liter TDI three-cylinder diesel engine (75 hp) offering a fuel consumption of just 3.1 l/100 km with CO2 emissions of just 82 g/km.

Compared with the previous mode, the Fabia Combi is 55 kg lighter, depending on vehicle configuration of course.
