The Czech car maker has unveiled the wagon version of its third-generation Skoda Fabia.
According to Skoda, the boot of the new Fabia wagon can carry 530 litres worth of gear with the seats up and 1395L with the rear folded seats down. That’s up from the 480L and 1460L available in Australia-bound versions of the second-generation wagon.
The new Fabia wagon can be optioned with a false boot floor that can be used to create a multilayer loading area in the trunk.
Other options for the cargo bay include a sliding cover to keep precious items hidden from sight, a variety of cargo nets, and a series of flexible storage compartments.
As with the hatch, the new wagon sits 31mm lower and is 90mm wider than the outgoing model. From front to back the next-generation Fabia wagon has grown by 10mm.
In Europe, buyers of the third-generation Fabia wagon can choose between three petrol motors, ranging from 55kW to 81kW, or three diesel engines, going from 55kW to 77kW.
Depending on the model, the new Fabia wagon is up to 55kg lighter than before. The most svelte variant tips the scales at 1004kg when equipped with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine.
Standard features, at least in Europe, include electric power steering and an electronic differential lock (XDS+).
Available equipment on the new Fabia wagon extends to a speed limiter, climate control air conditioning, automated emergency braking in the city, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights, panoramic glass roof, and front and rear parking sensors.
