Skoda have announced a new upcoming model the Fabia Combi, an estate version of the new Fabia hatchback.
Capacity wise the boot now has a load space of 530 litres, expanding to 1,395 litres with the rear seats folded flat.
Inside the Combi the interior is now 21mm wider and 8mm longer than its estate predecessor, and the Fabia sits lower.
Skoda have also implemented 17 ‘Simply Clever’ solutions, these include things like a false boot floor which can divide the boot into two horizontal compartments, MirrorLink technology for smartphone connectivity, an ice scraper in the fuel filler flap, a multimedia device cradle, a waste bin in the passenger door and storage nets on the front seats.
The Combi will be fitted with petrol engines ranges from 55 kW (75 PS) to 81 kW (110 PS). The new three-cylinder diesel range offers between 55 kW (75 PS) and 77 kW (105 PS). Transmissions are modern manual or automatic DSG gearboxes.
Keep an eye out for the launch in early 2015.
