Skoda is expanding the ScoutLine family by applying a somewhat rugged treatment on the Fabia Combi.

Back in July this year, Volkswagen-owned Skoda introduced the Rapid ScoutLine and now they are applying the same beefed up recipe on the Fabia Combi which will be offered exclusively with a front-wheel drive guise and with the model's standard ground clearance as there aren't any changes to the suspension setup. This slightly rugged off-road appearance was obtained by applying front & rear black plastic elements on the bumpers along with underbody protection finished in reflex-silver.

Additional plastic paneling has been installed onto the wheel arches and door sills which now have a matte black lacquer finish and contrast the reflex-silver side mirror caps. A similar silver hue can be seen on the roof rails that come as standard equipment while rounding off the list of changes are the 16-inch Rock and 17-inch Clubber alloy wheels.

The Fabia Combi ScoutLine can be had with a choice of three gasoline engines developing 75 PS, 90 PS and 110 PS along with three diesels outputting 75 PS, 90 PS and 105 PS. Skoda emphasizes the fact that all motors  - including the diesels - are Euro 6 compliant which means these are not part of the ongoing dieselgate saga that has affected 1.2 million Skodas equipped with the EA189 1.2 TDI, 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI engines.
