All-new Skoda Fabia to be unveiled in 2014

All-new Skoda Fabia to be unveiled in 2014

Skoda is readying its next generation Fabia which will be based on Skoda’s new VisionD design philosophy. Set for an unveiling in the last quarter of 2014, the Fabia will be manufactured on new shorter version of the Golf’s MQB platform. Though positioned alongside the Polo, the Fabia will be the first small car from the VW group to implement the new platform which will eventually be inherited by the VW Polo, the SEAT Ibiza and Audi A1.

A rendered image by AutoExpress reveals that the new Fabia will feature aggressive styling, with a wider front grille, angular headlights and LED tail-lamps. The upswept C-pillar from the current model is expected to be carried forward to the new generation while also offering contrasting colours for the roof, wheels and door mirror caps.

The test mule that has been spotted in Europe recently reveals that the car is longer than the current Polo implying improved legroom and boot space in the rear. Skoda has not revealed information of the various engines that are on offer, but in all likelihood, the 1.2-litre petrol and diesel mills that currently power the Fabia and the Polo are expected to make their way to the new model. 

In India, the Skoda Fabia never managed to make an impression mainly due to high ownership cost compared to the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai i20. But things might be a lot different when the new model comes to India, as by then Skoda will start manufacturing engine / transmission in India significantly brining down overall cost.
