Summer 2018 saw the ŠKODA FABIA undergo a comprehensive update. Features added to the popular small car included optional LED headlights and tail lights as well as additional safety features such as Blind Spot Detect and Rear Traffic Alert low. To mark the start of the 2020 model year, the Czech manufacturer is now offering two new equipment packages for the model series. The optional Black package refines the appearance of the ŠKODA FABIA and provides sporty accents. It includes a black ŠKODA grille that takes inspiration from the FABIA MONTE CARLO, the model’s sporty lifestyle variant. Other black features include the wing mirror caps and alloy wheels, which come in two different sizes: the 15-inch MATONE and the 16-inch VIGO alloys. LED tail lights round off the Black package, which can also be optionally combined with a black roof.
