20 years of the SKODA FABIA COMBI: A real success story
Six engines, extensive equipment and an especially practical offshoot from the start The first generation of the ŠKODA FABIA COMBI, which was built from 2000 to 2007, won over customers not only with its generous space but also its extensive standard equipment and numerous modern options. In terms of powertrains, four petrol engines with 1.4- and 2.0-litre displacement and outputs ranging from 44 kW (60 hp) to 85 kW (115 hp) were available in the first model year. The first-generation FABIA COMBI was also available as the PRAKTIK commercial vehicle variant.
ŠKODA offered the FABIA COMBI in the SCOUT model variant from the second generation onwards (2007 to 2014). Plastic trim in grey and silver at the front and rear as well as on the wheel arch linings and side skirts characterised the robust look of the model, which came with 16-inch alloy wheels as standard.
In the current third generation of the FABIA COMBI, this equipment variant bears the name SCOUTLINE and features similar details: a unique front spoiler and a robust, matt black rear bumper with silver trim, matt black wheel arch linings and side skirts, exterior mirrors and roof rails in silver and 16-inch alloy wheels. The front-wheel-drive FABIA COMBI SCOUTLINE is available with all engines in the range.
The ŠKODA FABIA COMBI also has a sporty side, especially as the RS version. In the second generation of the FABIA, the letter combination standing for “Rally Sport” is used on the COMBI as well as the hatchback model. The MONTE CARLO models, which have been part of the FABIA COMBI model range since the second generation, also reflect the brand’s rally history.
