In its range of propellants, Skoda would bet on TSI three-cylinder petrol engines with 1.0 liter displacement in power levels of 95 and 110 hp (In some markets, a three-cylinder 1.0 naturally aspirated engine would also be available in 65 or 80 hp power levels). Depending on the version, the engine can be combined with a five- or six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed DSG double-clutch automatic. The version that will be at the top of the range will correspond to the one powered by the 1.5 TSI 150 hp engine with deactivation system of two the four cylinders.
One of the possible novelties in its mechanical range would be the arrival of mild-hybrid technology, a type of system that has already been offered in the Octavia 2020 in variants with battery 48V, although in the case of the Fabia utility you could use a system with a 12V. A hypothetical vRS sports variant is initially ruled out, but not one or more versions with the Monte Carlo “surname”, with an exterior and interior design with a multitude of rebellious and aggressive aesthetic touches.
