Skoda introduces new Fabia Combi Scoutline with off-road looks

Article by Christian A., on November 14, 2018

It has already been months since Czech carmaker Skoda unveiled the comprehensively refreshed – both in terms of design and engineering -- Fabia hatchback. Now, the car company will be taking the wraps off the newest variant of the Fabia that boasts of rugged, off-road looks -- the new Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline.

Aside from all the improvement introduced on the newly revised Fabia model series – like its more distinctive exterior, new upholstery and a new instrument panel -- the new Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline features an appearance that seems ready for an adventure off the road. This is made possible by a number of bodywork elements matt black and silver as well as by distinctive 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels.

For instance, the new Fabia Combi Scoutline is fitted with special front spoiler in matt black with silver trim, as well as wheel arch linings and side sills in matt black. Likewise, the Fabia Combi Scoutline features wing mirrors and roof rails in silver. In addition, the vehicle’s new rear bumper with diffuser is finished in combination of matt black and silver. A customer can have his or her new Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline finished in any of the regular colors available for the Fabia Combi.

As standard, the new Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline rides on 16-inch Rock alloy wheels. However, the Fabia Combi Scoutline can also ride on optionally available 17-inch Braga rims in brushed anthracite metallic.

Interestingly, while the new Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline looks ready for an off-road adventure, it actually isn't. This is primarily because the Fabia Combi Scoutline isn't equipped with an all-drive system that could have helped it conquer trails off the road.

In terms of power, the new Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline shares the same engine lineup as the Fabia Combi, including the MPI and TSI engines from the Fabia model series. All of these engines are three-cylinder mills with a displacement of 1.0 liter. Furthermore, these engines are already compliant with the EU6d-TEMP emissions standard and feature start/stop system as well as brake energy recovery. Two of the turbocharged TSI engines come with gasoline particulate filters. As already disclosed, all facelifted vehicles introduced by Skoda this year will no longer be available with a diesel engine.

Optionally available for the new Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline are LED headlights and taillights. It can also be equipped with new assistance systems like Auto Light Assist, Blind Spot Detect and Rear Traffic Alert low. The new Fabia Combi Scoutline also comes with new Simply Clever like two USB ports in the rear of the cabin, a removable LED lamp and a double-layer floor mat.

Press Release

SCOUTLINE version available with all SKODA FABIA engines and colours

Two months after the comprehensive design and
engineering update for the ŠKODA FABIA, the Czech manufacturer is introducing a
SCOUTLINE variant with off-road looks. The ŠKODA FABIA COMBI SCOUTLINE advertises
its adventure DNA with distinctive bodywork elements in matt black and silver as well as 16-
and 17-inch alloy wheels. The new version will be available in selected European markets
with all engines and all regular colours for the FABIA COMBI.

In the new ŠKODA FABIA COMBI SCOUTLINE, a special front spoiler in matt black with silver trim
emphasises the dynamic effect of the redesigned radiator grille and the narrower headlights. Matt
black is also the colour for the wheel arch linings and side sills, with the wing mirrors and roof rails
sparkling in silver. Like the front spoiler, the new rear bumper with diffuser combines matt black and
silver. The 16-inch Rock alloy wheels are included as standard in the SCOUTLINE version; 17-inch
Braga wheels in brushed anthracite metallic are available as an option.

Full engine range with EU6d-TEMP compliance
The ŠKODA FABIA COMBI SCOUTLINE is available with the MPI and TSI engines from the FABIA
model series. They each have three cylinders and a 1.0-litre displacement and comply with today’s
most stringent EU6d-TEMP emissions standard. A start/stop system and brake energy recovery
come as standard. The two TSI engines are fitted with gasoline particulate filters.

Of course, the ŠKODA FABIA COMBI SCOUTLINE also benefits from all the other improvements
that went into the recently revised FABIA model series. The August 2018 update for the third most
popular model from the ŠKODA vehicle range included a more distinctive exterior as well as new
seat upholstery and a new instrument panel. For the first time, the ŠKODA FABIA can be equipped
with optional LED headlights and taillights, while new assistance systems include Auto Light Assist,
Blind Spot Detect and Rear Traffic Alert low. The latter uses radar sensors when reversing out of a
parking space or driveway to watch out for traffic and alert the driver early on. Add to that new
Simply Clever features such as two USB ports in the rear of the cabin, a double-layer floor mat and
a removable LED lamp, rechargeable while driving and located in the largest luggage compartment
in this class at 530 to 1,395 litres.
