A BIGGER, better version of one of Škoda’s top selling models makes its world debut in Paris this week – the Fabia Combi.
The Fabia Combi comes with state-of-the-art safety, comfort and infotainment systems from higher vehicle segments, among them the new MirrorLink™ and SmartGate technology for pairing the car with a smartphone and will be available in Europe from January 2015.
Also making its debut in the Fabia Combi is the new C-EPS (Column-Electric Power Steering), which saves weight and fuel and replaces the electro-hydraulic power steering used previously.
Compact on the outside, the new Fabia Combi offers a 530-litre boot capacity (1,395-litres with the back seat folded down) which is the largest in its segment.
The basic volume has increased by 25-litres compared to its predecessor. It is also available with an adjustable false boot floor as an optional extra. This is a removable shelf which divides the boot into two horizontal compartments, allowing storage on two levels.
