THE new-look Skoda Fabia will be priced from £11,160 when it goes on sale in the UK later this year.

With an all petrol line up the new model will be available as a hatch or estate topping out at £17,950 for a 1.0 TSI DSG SE L estate.

The range will kick off with a 1.0-litre three cylinder MPI model developing 60ps and includes S, SE, SE L, Monte Carlo and Colour Edition trims.

As well as the 60ps engine the MPI block will also be available with a higher output of 75ps while the turbo charged TSI engines will be available with outputs of 95 and 110ps.

The TSI engines come with petrol particulate filters and the higher powered engine can be had with a seven-speed semi-automatic DSG gearbox as an option.

LED daytime running lights are now standard across the facelifted range, while front assist anti-collisions systems and a multifunction trip computer are included on all models for the first time.

SE models gain front fog lights and 15-inch alloy wheels over the outgoing model, along auto up/down function for the electric windows. Colour Edition models have 16-inch Vigo alloy wheels in white, silver or black.

At SE L level the Fabia now comes with an Amundsen satellite navigation, a year's subscription to Skoda's Infotainment online system, lighting in the front centre console and 16-inch alloys

Sporty Monte Carlo models are upgraded to include climate control air conditioning, LED rear lights, rear electric windows and new seat upholstery. The styling package includes a black front spoiler, black roof, black floor mats and carbon-effect dashboard trim.

Options include LED headlights at £960, blind spot detection and rear traffic alert at £390 while 18-inch alloy wheels can be had on the Monte Carlo hatch for an extra £600.

The new Fabia has a revised bonnet and grille plus narrower headlights giving the car a sleeker appearance while at the rear the bumper now includes added reflectors to increase the car's visibility at night.

And as well as coming with an ice scraper stowed in the fuel filler flap as part of Skoda's Simply Clever features, the new car now comes with a tyre tread depth gauge.

First deliveries are expected to start in September.
