The readers of the German trade magazine ‘auto motor und sport’ have voted the new ŠKODA FABIA as ‘Autonis – Best Design Innovation 2021’.

The fourth generation of the successful model beat six competitors in the small car category. The FABIA boasts an emotive design, generous interior and ŠKODA’s signature crystalline elements.

“We are proud that the ŠKODA FABIA and our unique ŠKODA design language are inspiring car fans in Germany. The ‘Autonis’ is a very special award for us, as it comes directly from the readers themselves. The new FABIA is a modern and elegant car that stirs more emotions with its new proportions and lines. In the interior, the focus is on the passengers, with ergonomic controls and, as always, above-average room.”Oliver Stefani, Head of ŠKODA Design

The new ŠKODA FABIA is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Transverse Toolkit MQB-A0 and surpasses its predecessors in all dimensions. At 4,108 millimetres, the small car exceeds the four-metre mark for the first time and thus offers passengers even more space.

Dynamic proportions, ŠKODA’s signature crystalline elements, such as the sharply contoured front headlights and rear lights, as well as sculptural lines on the bonnet, emphasise the new ŠKODA FABIA’s emotive design language. Small details add further accents; for example, body lines on the front doors stylise the triangle of the Czech flag.

The 21st readers’ poll gave voters a choice of 117 new cars released over the past twelve months. These were divided into ten vehicle categories. Six models were nominated in the small car category. The readers chose two favourites per category and two vehicles that were less appealing. From this, auto motor und sport calculated a points score. With 25.8 points, the ŠKODA FABIA took first place and thus the title of ‘Autonis 2021’ for the best design innovation among the small cars.
