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.
