In 2019, a modernized ŠKODA FABIA R5 evo heads to rally tracks around the world. It has already clocked thousands of kilometres during tests on gravel, tarmac, snow and ice. The goal was to develop a car that could improve the considerable abilities of the highly regarded first version even further. The previous car won three WRC 2 titles and hundreds of rally victories in dozens of countries, becoming the world’s most successful rally car in the R5 category.

This new version of the rally drivers’ favourite is fitted with an upgraded 1.6-litre engine with more power, more effective cooling and lubrication systems and faster electronics. The gearbox has been modified as well, increasing its service life. The whole body shell has been strengthened and the suspension now has longer wheel travel for more grip in extreme conditions. The steering has a faster ratio and the crews receive information on a new display.

The successes of the project

The most successful car in ŠKODA’s motorsport history dominated the world’s rallies from 2015 to 2019. The ŠKODA Motorsport works drivers took three WRC 2 titles – Esapekka Lappi in 2016, Pontus Tidemand in 2017 and Jan Kopecký in 2018. Thanks to its durability, reliability and competitiveness, the FABIA R5 also became very popular with customer teams, with almost 300 models produced.
