Skoda has revealed the Fabia Combi Scoutline, a tougher & more rugged looking version of its Fabia Combi light wagon.
The Scoutline gets a number of off-road-esque touches to differentiate it over the regular version, including a new grille, metallic front and rear bumper trim, black wheel arches and body cladding, silver mirror caps and roof rails, and Scoutline badging. It comes standard with 16-inch ‘Rock’ alloy wheels, while 17-inch Braga versions can be optioned.
Powering the Scoutline are the same selection of 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrols as the standard version – these include 44kW or 55kW naturally aspirated motors and 70kW or 81kW turbocharged units. All engines drive the front wheels only – all-wheel-drive is not available.
It’s available with LED headlights, LED taillights, automatic high-beam, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and many other comfort & safety features, as with the wider Fabia range. Practicality wise, the Combi Scoutline offers 530 litres of boot space, or 1395 litres with the rear seats down – pretty impressive for such a small car.
The Skoda Fabia Combi Scoutline will be available in a number of European markets soon – however, don’t expect to see it on Australian or US roads anytime soon.
