Skoda has produced the 500,000th third generation Fabia in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic. At the same time, the manufacturer is celebrating another milestone - the four millionth Skoda Fabia since the series debuted in 1999. The jubilee vehicle is a Skoda Fabia Combi with a 1.0 TSI petrol engine and an automatic DSG transmission in moon-white. With 91,400 deliveries in the first five months of 2017, the popular small car is currently ranked second on the Skoda best-seller list behind the Octavia.

Shortly before the turn of the millennium, the first Skoda Fabia celebrated its premiere at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in 1999. It was based on Volkswagen's A0 platform and, at that time, set standards in handling, safety and engine technology. As a typical Skoda, the Fabia scored with lots of space. At the Paris Motor Show in autumn 2000, the brand introduced the first Skoda Fabia Combi. The Skoda Fabia RS made its debut in March 2003. Around 1,790,000 Skoda Fabias of the first generation ran off the production line.

In early 2017, Skoda returned to the Geneva Motor Show. The Skoda Fabia received a 1.0 TSI three-cylinder for the first time, providing more power with lower fuel consumption. The 95bhp and 110bhp powertrains replaced the 1.2-litre four-cylinder used previously. The model features front-wheel assist with integrated city emergency braking function, adaptive cruise control, multi-collision brake assist and fatigue detection. In addition, electronic tyre pressure monitoring comes as standard with all Fabia models.
