Colourful Virtual Show
The new FABIA had its premiere at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art
n 4 May 2021 at the DOX gallery in Prague, ŠKODA AUTO presented the fourth generation of its very popular car, which during 22 years of existence has ranked as the brand’s second-bestselling model. Because of hygienic measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world premiere took place without guests. However, the brand’s fans were not short-changed, as they could follow the car’s ceremonial unveiling online. Thanks to the digital format, they were able to walk around the virtual pavilion as if it was the real gallery. They could examine the car using the 360° view, get acquainted with the details of the FABIA model’s success story and meet virtual avatars of the participating members of the ŠKODA AUTO Board of Directors.
FABIA addresses a very wide range of customers, from rooky drivers to the elderly, singles and families. In addition to the traditional features, the new fourth generation also offers an emotional look and even more space. We will be able to further expand our target group.

More modern, economical and safe
Like the SCALA, the car uses the VW Group’s MQB-A0 modular platform and offers an economical and efficient drive, greater comfort and a lot of new assistance systems still common only in higher-class cars. At the same time, it boasts the traditional advantages of ŠKODA models, including excellent value for money, high functionality and several Simply Clever solutions. “The FABIA has been an integral part of our portfolio for more than 20 years. The fourth generation has all the prerequisites to continue the previous models’ success. It offers more space than competing cars, great connectivity options, new assistance systems and an emotional look. In short, everything a driver needs – and more”, was how Thomas Schäfer, Chairman of the Board, summarised the car’s advantages.
Bigger on the outside, more spacious on the inside
Compared with its predecessor, the new FABIA has grown in all directions and has a more spacious interior. However, the new proportions certainly do not detract from its beauty. It has a more dynamic look and further develops the brand’s design language. It gives a sportier, more mature impression and corresponds to the current lifestyle of our customers. At the same time, it continues to be a practical companion for everyday travel. ED
