Skoda adds SE Drive trim to Fabia, Karoq and Kodiaq ranges

Good-value SE Drive models add extra kit and are on sale now

  • New trim level available on three popular models
  • SE Drive costs less than adding individual options onto SE trims
  • Available to order now

The Skoda Fabia, Skoda Karoq and Skoda Kodiaq are now available in a new SE Drive trim, which slots into the middle of the respective ranges. SE Drive adds extra kit and a unique interior trim but costs less than if you were to add the extras on as individual options. All three models are available to order now.

Starting from £14,865, the Skoda Fabia SE Drive costs the same as the Colour Edition trim level and £955 more than SE. For the extra, Skoda includes new 16-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors and the upgraded Amundsen infotainment touchscreen with sat nav and a year’s subscription to online features. It also features a surround-sound six-speaker stereo, smartphone mirroring and air conditioning. Offered on both hatchback and estate variants, the Fabia SE Drive comes with a choice of three 1.0-litre petrol engines with either 59, 94 or 113bhp.

On the Skoda Karoq SE Drive, extra equipment over the SE includes LED ambient lighting, 17-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors all-round and a reversing camera, plus the Amundsen sat nav. Adding all these features individually would cost £1,345 but the SE Drive trim is just £855 more expensive than SE. Prices range between £23,385 and £26,700, depending on the engine you choose. Skoda’s petrol and diesel engines, both with 113 and 148bhp, can be chosen for the SE Drive model.

Skoda’s largest SUV, the seven-seat Kodiaq, also gets this fresh new trim level. Like the Karoq, it features the top-spec sat nav, LED ambient lighting and a rear-view camera, plus a colour trip computer, LED rear lights, a year’s online features and 19-inch alloy wheels. Both 148bhp engines are available; the petrol comes with a choice of gearboxes while the diesel is auto-only. You’ll be paying £28,610 for the petrol manual or £31,915 for the diesel auto, which represents a £365 saving over SE models with the same kit.

The cars are available to order now with first deliveries expected in mid-March.
