Skoda Fabia 2019 pricing and specs revealed

The 2019 Skoda Fabia hatch and wagon are now available with additional tech and safety gear. (Note: local images unavailable).

The facelifted Skoda Fabia 2019 hatch and wagon model is now on sale in Australia, with additional equipment and a slew of minor changes for the Czech brand’s compact model.

Sporting a mildly tweaked exterior including a reshaped grille and new headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights, and there are optional full LED headlights available, as well. The bumpers have been tweaked, too, but unlike Europe, we won’t get the first-time-ever-on-a-Fabia 18-inch alloy wheels - 17s are offered here, but the regular model gets 15-inch steel wheels.

There are minor interior adjustments, too, with a new instrument cluster and new materials used. All Fabias get a leather-lined steering wheel, handbrake lever and gearknob.

The model range is split between the standard Fabia, and the sportier looking Monte Carlo - and you can have either in hatch or wagon bodystyles.

There are additional new safety items offered, including adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring. There are additional new safety items offered, including adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring.

The entry-grade Fabia misses out on some of the things you’d expect, like cruise control and alloy wheels, but it is fitted as standard with a 6.5-inch touchscreen media system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Bluetooth phone and audio streaming. You’ll need to get the Monte Carlo if you want in-built sat nav, and you’ll score a better (Arkamys) sound system, too.

As with the previous update, the smallest Skoda comes as standard with auto emergency braking (AEB), a reversing camera, six airbags and a retained five-star ANCAP rating from 2015.

But now there are additional new safety items offered, including adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring - the three of which can be optioned in the 'Vision Package', at a cost of $1800, and that also adds the new LED headlights and tail-lights, auto lights and wipers, front fog-lights and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

There are two powertrains available, both of which are one-litre, three cylinder units.

The Monte Carlo doesn’t only get the most powerful powertrain, it also gains some dynamic differentiators such as lower sports suspension, larger (17-inch) alloy wheels, a body kit, sports seats and a flat-bottom steering wheel.

There are two powertrains available.

The base model car is the 70TSI, a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol (with 70kW of power and 160Nm of torque) and a five-speed manual transmission. It uses a claimed 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres of 95 RON premium unleaded fuel.

The other drivetrain on offer is the 81TSI, again a 1.0-litre three-pot turbo petrol but with 81kW of power and 200Nm of torque. It has a standard-fit seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission, and like the lower-grade version, is front-wheel drive. Claimed fuel economy is 4.7L/100km (uses 95RON).

Skoda offers a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty on its models. Skoda offers a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty on its models.

The Fabia is available in an array of colours, and all models in the Monte Carlo range come with a black roof finish. Both variants can be had in white, grey (including a Monte Carlo-specific Steel Grey finish), blue, black, red and green (regular Fabia only).

Skoda’s drive-away pricing strategy for the Fabia range has gone unchanged as part of this update - all models see no change to their positioning compared with 2018 models.

Skoda offers a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty on its models, and the company also offers buyers the option to pre-purchase either three years/45,000km or five years/75,000km of servicing.
