2018 Skoda Fabia Facelift gets mild updates, LED, new trim, more tech

After publishing a teaser design sketch last month, Skoda finally revealed the mildly updated Fabia Facelift in a hatchback as well as a wagon variant. The changes on its design are so subtle that you may not notice them right away. But we’re here to point these out for you. Let’s start off with the headlights and taillights. These now use LED tech, making the rear look like the facelifted Octavia.

Customers can now get a set of 18-inch alloy wheels exclusively for the hatchback version, which is a first for the Fabia. Both the front and the rear bumpers have been given some changes too but these are not very apparent. While these revisions are welcome, these probably will not get you so excited that you’d want to go straight to your dealership.

As for technology upgrades, the cabin has now been equipped with a 6.5-inch touchscreen that have Bluetooth, USB, and SD card connectivity. The car gets the Swing system as standard but customers can then opt for the Swing Plus and Amundsen setup if they want features like CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink.

A hybrid Skoda Fabia RS may be part of VW’s upcoming lineup under e-mobility campaign

While many believe electric mobility is the future, it is still uncertain how far or near we really are into making the transition --- but that may change real soon.

Insiders reveal in a recent report by Autocar that Volkswagen Group is taking the steps to make this happen at the earliest time possible. How? It seeks to become the leading promoter of e-mobility in the market. It is said that Volkswagen Group wishes to launch about 30 EVs by 2025, but prior to that, the German marque will be promoting a number of gasoline-electric hybrids under its sub-brands. It’s expected to comprise several SUVs and two electrified hatchbacks.

In a bid to win the hearts of car enthusiasts, Volkswagen AG’s marketing people thought the hybrid hatches hold the key to letting everyone come aboard the electrified future. This could be achieved by means of spreading the word about electric technologies among fellow customers. Well, hot hybrid hatchbacks can be a lot of fun you know.
