The engine range is fully compliant with strict EU6 regulations, starting with the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder unit that has previously been seen in the Škoda Citigo that outputs 60PS or 70PS. Next there is a 1.2 turbocharged four-cylinder unit that outputs 90PS or 110PS and then there is a 1.4 turbodiesel unit that has outputs of 90PS or 105PS.

A DSG automatic, twin-clutch transmission is available for the 1.2-litre unit with 110PS output and the 1.4-litre unit with 90PS output at launch.

The 1.4-litre unit with 90PS output in manual form is the most efficient engine in this third-generation Fabia. It has a CO2 value of only 88g/km which equates to an impressive 83.1 MPG on the combined cycle, making this derivative a particularly attractive offer for company car drivers.

There are 3 trim levels available from launch. These include the base level S grade, an SE grade and top of the range SE L grade. All versions of the new Fabia come with DAB digital radio, Bluetooth, Start and Stop technology and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors.

The SE trim adds features such as a three-spoke leather steering wheel, 15inch alloy wheels and an infotainment system that incorporates a USB and SD card slots and controls for telephone functionality.

The SE L trim builds the standard trim levels even further including a multi-function steering wheel, 16inch alloy wheels, climate control, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, keyless entry, front fog lights and LED daytime running lights.

This new version is longer and has more interior space than its predecessor. It has more headroom and a larger boot - the boot has 330 litres of space with the seats in place and with them folded, this increases to 1150 litres. Inside the boot, there is an array of new features including bag hooks, a hat shelf and two storage nets.

If you're reading this and wishing there was a new estate version, don't worry! There is a new Fabia Estate expected to follow, which was revealed at this years Paris Motor Show.
