New Skoda Fabia 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Toyota Yaris rival gets more expensive

Skoda Australia has increased the driveaway pricing of the Fabia light car by $500.

As such, the Fabia now starts at $17,490 for the 70TSI hatch and tops out at $27,490 for the 81TSI Monte Carlo wagon (see full pricing table below).

Speaking to CarsGuide, a Skoda Australia spokesperson said the price rise was prompted by exchange-rate and inflationary pressures, with the Fabia’s standard specification and options carrying over.

For reference, the entry-level 70TSI variants are powered by a 70kW/160Nm 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine, while the mid-range and flagship 81TSI versions use an 81kW/200Nm tune of the same unit.

A five-speed manual transmission is exclusively mated to the 70TSI variants, while 81TSI versions can only be had with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic unit. Either way, the Toyota Yaris rival is front-wheel drive.
