Skoda has officially confirmed it will launch the third-generation Fabia hatchback at the Paris Motor Show in October this year. The all-new Skoda Fabia will be underpinned by the same platform as the current car's and won’t be based on Volkswagen group’s famed MQB platform.
The third-gen Fabia will get the same engines as the facelifted Polo, but will feature major changes on the exterior and interiors front. The car will be available in hatchback and wagon body styles in Europe and Skoda is analysing on bringing the sedan version back.
Skoda might do away with the high-end RS versions and instead concentrate on the Monte Carlo editions. The Monte Carlo editions use the same engines available in the standard versions, but have sporty styling. The third-generation Fabia will go on sale by end of 2014 or early 2015.
Skoda discontinued the Fabia in India owing to poor sales; however there are rumours that the company will relaunch it soon. And, we don’t find any reason why Skoda should not. We can expect the third-gen Fabia within six to eight months of its global launch.
