The Skoda has released the teaser images of the upcoming fourth generation Fabia ahead of its global debut. The 2022 Skoda Fabia will be the first Fabia to be based on the MQB-A0 platform, making it longer and wider than its predecessor.
The 2022 Skoda Fabia will be available in five Volkswagen Group’s new EVO generation petrol engines. The range of engines available for the new Skoda Fabia includes two multipoint injection (MPI) petrol engines and three TSIs with direct injection. The new entry-level engine is a 1.0 MPI with three cylinders and an output of 65 PS. This is an increase of 5 PS compared to its predecessor. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a new manual 5-speed gearbox, which is also used in the variant featuring the second MPI engine. This generates an output of 59 kW (80 PS). Both MPI engines in the 2022 Skoda Fabia comply with the current Euro 6d emissions standard. The top of the range Skoda Fabia will be available with a new 1.5 TSI engine which produces 150 PS from its four cylinders and is combined with a 7-speed DSG as standard.
