Skoda is introducing the Fabia Estate Bohemia, intended to compete with the new breed of mini MPVs.

The Fabia Estate Bohemia features 426 litres of cargo capacity – 1,225 litres with the rear seats folded – making it larger than many mini MPVs. It’s available with a choice of two engines – 1.4 16V petrol or 1.4 TDI PD diesel (both 75 bhp).

Standard equipment is based on the Fabia Classic, meaning CD player, height- and reach-adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat, driver and front passenger airbags, power steering, immobiliser and split, folding rear seat.

In addition, the Bohemia adds air conditioning, 15″ alloy wheels, roof rails, front fog lights, comfort seats, leather steering wheel, gearknob and gaiter, a cargo net in the luggage area, Fabia Plus Pack (remote central locking and front electric windows) and sunset privacy glass from the B-pillar back.

Named after the region of the Czech Republic where Skoda began producing cars 100 years ago – and remains today – the Bohemia is available to order now.

Prices start at £10,300 for the 1.4 16V and £10,910 for the 1.4 TDI PD.
