Fabia is a small car produced by Škoda Auto. It was officially presented at the 58th Frankfurt Motor Show on September 14, 1999. Initially available as a five-door hatchback. The car was introduced as the successor of Škoda Felicia, despite the fact that both models were produced for a long time in parallel. Less than a year after the hatchback, the Fabia was introduced with a station wagon, and a sedan joined the body range in 2001. In 2007, the second generation of hatchback was presented at the Geneva Motor Show, ending production of its first generation. The second Combi series was introduced six months later. In the second generation, the production of the sedan was abandoned. The cars were produced in Mladá Boleslav.

At the beginning of October 2014, the third generation was presented during the Paris Motor Show, and in 2018 a facelift was decided.
