In principle, the former VW head of development has given up his job due to this model. He had meant Škoda should not get the new platform with the new Fabia as the first in the entire group. One should equip Škoda better with the slightly outdated technology. How good that the boss Piëch has prevailed and the A0-platform was finished in time.

You will have noticed, the Fabia was in contrast to his predecessor, the first complete VW model in the A-segment. There was yet an engine that was now virtually declared to VW inventory, but otherwise is strictly according to platform strategy all not visible technology identical to the later appearing Polo respectively Seat Ibiza or even larger models.

The Fabia was next to the Octavia the success model of the brand. Taking the production numbers of the first two full years 2000 and 2001, then the Fabia reached thereof two and half times in 2009. The Fabia has also particularly benefited of the scrappage premium in Germany.

Across the Group, it came immediately after the Golf, beats the Polo, too. It is simply the most favourable car of this size in VW quality. Its lower price was based up to a factor of 10 to the wages in Germany at this moment. Of course it practises therewith 'cannibalism' in relation to the sale of Polo models. 10/14
