2015 Skoda Fabia spotted testing ahead of Paris Motor Show unveiling

The 2015 Skoda Fabia might be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October. Meanwhile a test mule was spotted testing uncamouflaged and the details being hidden with only a tape and fake decals. 

This is by far the closest pictures one has seen of the Fabia hatchback and the design cues are clearly evident. As it has been the case with most Skoda cars for a while, the fascia of the 2015 Fabia looks much similar to the Rapid and the MQB-based Octavia.

The Fabia as is evident from the spy pictures retains a few design bits from the current model like the C-pillar. However, it gets more angular details than the existing model. Although, it looks like the new car has grown in dimensions which might be a possibility, the interesting part is the wheelbase looks longer and might create more interior space.  

The 2015 Fabia won’t be built on VW’s modern MQB platform as rumoured earlier. Instead, the car will be underpinned by the same architecture albeit with a few revisions. This was done to save costs and the fact that the Rapid shares its platform with the Fabia which gives them economy of scale. 

It is likely to be powered by the two turbocharged petrol units – the 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre TSI engines. The diesel model will be powered by the 1.6-litre TDI engine and maybe a three-pot 1.0-litre engine.

Skoda India discontinued the Fabia in 2013 owing to poor sales. The Czech carmaker might re-introduce the Fabia in our market once the new car hits the international markets. The 2015 Fabia is expected to make its debut this year at the Paris Motor Show and we can expect the car to hit our shores in late 2015 or earlier.
