THE fourth generation of Skoda's Fabia supermini will be priced from Â£14,905 when it arrives later in the year.
That's an increase of around Â£1,000 over the current model but the newcomer is bigger all round and comes with more equipment.
It is the first Skoda to be built on parent group VW's latest MQB-A0 platform and has exceeded the four metre length for the first time measuring 4.108 metres. Boot space is also up by 50 litres to 380 litres.
Four trim grades will be available initially with the line up topping out from £18,980 for SE L models.
The range will consist of S, SE Comfort, SE L and Colour Edition grades with the SE Comfort and SE L trims aimed at drivers looking for a good handling car that is well equipped.
Colour Edition versions focus on style that and have contrasting paintwork for the roof, wing mirror caps and alloy wheels.
A sporty Monte Carlo trim will follow early 2022 with more details to be announced later.
The engines are from VW's EVO 1.0-litre range and will be available in 65, 85, 95 and 110ps outputs with the higher powered version coming with a seven-speed DSG box as standard.
Skoda says that the boot capacity of the new model is the largest in the supermini class and all new Fabias will come with LED headlights, a range of driver assistance systems including road edge detection and a colour touchscreen.
High grade SE L versions will have a 9,2-inch display panel, sat nav and dual zone air conditioning among their standard features.
Mid-grade SE Comfort models are priced from £16,795 while the Colour Edition costs from £17,495.
