Fabia has never been a star of the Skoda range, but for three generations the small-class model has done its job. In 2019 Fabia was in second place in the Skoda sales rankings with 172,800 units after Octavia (363,700 units). Fabia didn't have the aura of Octavia, which was the first completely new Skoda model developed after VW took over the brand, but historically speaking, a small-class model existed in the Skoda range and before the VW era. The fourth-generation Skoda Fabia will be launched in 2021. The adoption of the platform MQB A0 with a wider track and the wheelbase extended by 9 cm, from 2.47 to 2.56 meters, contributes to a more imposing presence on the street.
