The ŠKODA FABIA has received one of the world’s most coveted design awards, the small hatchback picking up the “Red Dot” design prize for product design. An expert jury annually awards this internationally recognised seal of quality for outstanding design in one of the world’s largest design competitions, the “Red Dot Design Award”. The ŠKODA FABIA is the eighth ŠKODA model to be honoured with a “Red Dot”.
The ŠKODA FABIA refines elements by giving them a characteristic edge. The result is a car that will catch anyone’s eye with its assured stance on the road. Much more than before, the grille and the headlights fuse into a single optical unit. The grille, with its distinct vertical bars, is now elegantly distinguished by a chrome outline.
The surfaces below the tailgate’s edge have a distinctive inward slant, enhancing the contrast between light and dark shades and adding optical width.
The tail lights’ distinctive C shape is accentuated by a black perimeter strip. Two clean-cut triangles at the rear of the vehicle visually connect together the tail lights and the tailgate.
The car’s high, sharply drawn tornado line stretches along the vehicle and creates a contrast-rich interplay of light and shade on the side of the car. The clear outline of the side windows is defined by straight lines and forms a self-contained unit. The roof of the ŠKODA FABIA slopes gently rearward, the wheel arches have bold contours, the wings are emphasised.
