With the next generation of the Skoda Fabia set to be announced within 12 months, the remaining stock has been given the hurry-up with a slew of handy features and some sharp driveaway pricing.
Skoda has announced the 2021 Fabia Run-Out Edition which packs a huge list of upgrades and can be had for as little as $21,990 driveaway.
The 2021 Fabia Run-Out Edition packs a number of visual and equipment upgrades over the standard model and is available as both a hatch and wagon.
Imitating the serious look of the Fabia Monte Carlo, the Run-Out Edition wears a black package that darkens the grill, front spoiler, rear diffuser, LED tail lights and 16-inch Vigo alloy wheels.
Skoda has also beefed up the handling of the Fabia with sport suspension, while a three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel builds on the sporty feel.
The Fabia Run-Out Edition should also be a more comfortable and safe place to be with a centre armrest and privacy glass now fitted.
In addition to the safety tech such as adaptive cruise control, front AEB, multi-collision braking and a reversing camera; Skoda has also fitted fatigue detection and front fog lights for added peace of mind.
As with the standard model, the Fabia Run-Out Edition is available with a choice of a five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic.
Both options use an unchanged turbocharged one-litre three-cylinder engine with the manual tuned to 70kW of power and 160Nm of torque while the DSG is wound up to 81kW/200 Nm.
Prices start from $21,990 driveaway for the manual hatchback or $24,990 driveaway with the DSG. The wagon is a $1,000 premium and costs $22,990 and $25,990 driveaway respectively.
The Fabia Run-Out Edition packs many of the same upgrades as the now largely unavailable Fabia Monte Carlo, which is priced at $24,990 (before on-roads) for the DSG hatchback – meaning customers could be saving a considerable sum if the latest model ticks all their boxes.
A selection of four colours known as Candy White and Corrida Red is available at no cost with Race Blue and Quartz Grey an option for $550 extra. A contrasting black roof is also offered but only for the hatch versions.
The $3200 Premium Package is also available, packing niceties such as LED headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatically adaptive air conditioning and rain sensors.
Safety features such as rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring are also included in the package.
The Skoda Fabia Run-Out Edition is now available in showrooms.
All prices listed are to driveaway, though it may differ depending on local state rules and taxes.
