The history of Skoda Fabia

  • The Fabia first arrived on our shores in 1999, becoming an instant hit and winning the UK’s WhatCar? Car of The Year award in 2000*.
  • Originally available in saloon, hatchback and estate variants, only the latter two guises are on offer in the Fabia’s most recent generation.
  • The latest version of the Fabia hit the market in 2014 with its five star Euro NCAP rating**. This helped the model earn WhatCar?’s Car of the Year title again in 2015^.

Fun fact

When sculpting the third generation model’s exterior, Skoda’s designers made the conscious decision to keep its form simple and fuss-free, echoing the earliest edition of the Fabia.

Tax bands and insurance groups for Skoda Fabia models

There’s a lot that goes into a car insurance quote. Insurance providers will look at a range of information before they settle on a price that’s right, and this may include your car’s insurance group. Car insurance groups are bandings running from 1-50 that reflect the costs and risks associated with the model of car you drive, helping gauge the scale of any potential claims. 

There’s also a banding system used to determine how much tax you owe on your car. Known as Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), this is owed annually and the cars that emit more CO2 are charged the most. 

Insurance groups and tax bands for popular editions of the Skoda Fabia include: 

Model Insurance Group Tax Band

Skoda Fabia S Plus 1.0 MPI 60PS 5d 2 F
