Skoda is getting ready to farewell the current Fabia.

    A new model will be in Australia within the next 12 months, but in the meantime Skoda is farewelling the current car with a Run-Out Edition.

    Offered in base 70kW guise with a five-speed manual and with an 81kW engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the Run-Out Edition will be the only Fabia model offered throughout 2021.

    Compared to the 2020 model, the Run-Out rides on black alloy wheels and a sport suspension, and has unique trim highlights to boot.

    There’s a smattering of 2020 models kicking around at Skoda Australia dealers, but the car you see here will carry the torch from how on.

    The only image of the new Skoda Fabia Run-Out Edition is the blue car below. We’ll update when more are available.


    • 2021 Skoda Fabia Run-Out Edition 70kW manual: $21,990
    • 2021 Skoda Fabia Run-Out Edition wagon 70kW manual: $22,990

    Power in the Fabia with a five-speed manual transmission comes from a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with 70kW and 160Nm.

    The seven-speed dual-clutch model has a version of the same engine making 81kW of power and 200Nm of torque.
