More choice, a wider power range and even more efficiency: the fourth generation of Škoda Fabia it is equipped with recent engines EVO generation of the Volkswagen Group, which comply with the strict Euro 6d emissions standard. Four engines achieve a range of over 900 kilometers in the WLTP cycle in combination with the 50-liter fuel tank, available for the first time as an option.
The fourth generation of Fabia is available with engines of the Volkswagen Group’s EVO generation, which comply with the Euro 6d emissions standard. The two 1.0 MPIs provide respectively 48 kW (65 hp) with 93 Nm and 59 kW (80 hp) with 93 Nm. Both are equipped with a five-speed manual gearbox, as does the 1.0 TSI 70 kW (95 hp) and 175 Nm. The 1.0 TSI 81 kW (110 hp) and 200 Nm is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox or, on request, the seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. Most of the engines and transmissions of the New Škoda Fabia are produced in the Czech Republic. The 1.0 MPI and 1.0 TSI engines are produced in Mladá Boleslav, as are the manual transmissions. The seven-speed DSG gearbox instead it comes from the ŠKODA plant in Vrchlabí. The 1.0 MPI 80 CV has homologated consumption in the WLTP cycle of 5.1-5.4 l / 100 km, while the much more powerful 1.0 TSI 110 CV in the same cycle achieves a consumption of 5.0-5.5 l / 100km. Thanks to this high efficiency, the two engines have ranges of more than 700 km, but by choosing the 50-liter tank (optional at the moment not available in Italy), instead of the standard 40-liter one, it is possible to obtain a maximum autonomy greater than 900 kilometers, in the WLTP cycle.
Škoda Auto has worked in a targeted way for reduce fuel consumption and emissions of the two MPI EVO engines, increasing their performance at the same time. These improvements were made possible by an optimized crankshaft assembly, including pistons and piston rings, which reduces frictional losses. The water circuit around the cylinder head and engine block has been redesigned to achieve greater cooling efficiency for the cylinders, combustion chambers and integrated exhaust manifold. The MPI engines fitted to the new Fabia run second the Atkinson combustion cycle, in which the intake valves close only during the piston compression phase. This pushes some of the fuel mixture into the intake manifold, reducing the effective compression ratio and consumption of the engine.
The two direct injection 1.0 TSI engines use an injection pressure of 350 bar. The thin plasma coating of the cylinders measures only 150 μm (0.15 mm) and replaces the cast iron overlay, reducing friction. This further reduces fuel consumption and emissions by decreasing the heat load through more even heat distribution and dissipation in the combustion chamber. The three-cylinder TSI engines run in the fuel-efficient Miller cycle and the turbocharger is equipped with a variable geometry turbine. This results in higher torque, available at wide engine revs, while reducing emissions at the same time. The plasma coating and the injection pressure of 350 bar are also present in the 1.5 TSI 150 CV (engine not available for the Italian market). Thanks to Active Cylinder Management (ACT), the four-cylinder engine automatically deactivates two cylinders under light load conditions, a process that is practically unnoticeable for the driver, and also helps to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
