Safety features

The ŠKODA FABIA is all about safety without compromise. Besides the safety systems already described, the following features are available as standard or an option:

Isofix and Top Tether anchorage points to fasten a child seat to the second-row outboard seats and alternatively the front-passenger seat.
› Unlike cruise control, which maintains a set speed, the Speed limiter allows the driver to travel at any speed up to, but not more than, the predefined value.
ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or when braking on slippery surfaces.
› By increasing the braking pressure, the HBA braking assist helps drivers in situations in which emergency braking is necessary. This can lead to a significant reduction in the braking distance required.
EBD automatically optimizes braking pressure and the overall braking balance and prevents overbraking of the rear wheels.
MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels, which can occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface.
› The ASR ensures smooth starting and acceleration without the wheels spinning on slippery surfaces.
EDL helps when accelerating or driving uphill with low traction under one of the driven wheels.
TSA operates when the vehicle is equipped with an original towing device with its own control unit. The system works on the principle braking one or more wheels and simultaneously reducing engine torque as necessary. The TSA system intervenes and helps stabilize the car and the trailer.
XDS+ helps the driver during sharp turns and ensures that the vehicle behaves neutrally during dynamic cornering. The control electronics essentially simulate the presence of a self-locking differential to improve traction and driving dynamics during turns. As a result, the vehicle will take bends much more assuredly and naturally than before.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring TPM+ keeps the driver informed of the tyre pressure at all times.
Flashing brake lights reduce the risk of rear-end impact, especially when approaching traffic jams on highways or braking suddenly in front of an unexpected obstacle.

Drive and steering

Sports chassis

With the sports chassis, the springs are tuned differently and ground clearance is reduced by 15 mm. The lower centre of gravity and different suspension characteristics mean there are more opportunities for dynamic driving.

Rough Road Package

Chassis protection can be further enhanced thanks to the Rough Road Package which includes:

› Specific springs and suspension raising chassis in total by 15 mm, increasing the ground clearance by 9 mm.
› Reinforced lower engine cover providing additional protection against mechanical damage.

Spare wheel

The standard tyre repair kit can optionally be replaced by:

› a space-saving steel spare wheel
› a full-size steel spare wheel (for 14” and 15” wheels only)
