The Skoda Fabia has long been an integral part of the small car segment and offers a practical and inexpensive alternative to models such as the Ford Fiesta and the Volkswagen Polo. The published design sketches now show details of the front, headlights, and wheels.
While the Skoda Fabia is still recognizable as such, it appears to have received a ton of styling updates to visually align it with the rest of the manufacturer’s range. The design sketches show a large radiator grille and sharp, angular headlights on the front that are similar to those of the Skoda Scala. The full-LED headlights are installed as standard and the LED modules are shaped like blocks of ice, which explains the angular and crystalline design.
Its revised silhouette retains the edgy, sharp styling that the current Skoda Fabia is known for, but the new model appears to have grown in size, which is sure to be more comfortable to drive and more spacious to sit on.
A sportier variant, the well-known Monte Carlo equipment version, was also spotted. This version has long been the top model of the Skoda Fabia and gives the small car a look inspired by rally sport (at least that’s what Skoda says) as well as a lot of extra equipment.
New Skoda Fabia interior
It is almost certain that the Skoda Fabia will get a completely new interior. While the current car is by no means bad inside, it undoubtedly feels dated compared to modern alternatives like the Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa, and VW Polo.
An infotainment system is expected, which is available as an option for the entire series, as well as the digital instrument cluster Virtual Cockpit from Skoda, as can be seen in the larger Octavia.
Since the car has gotten bigger, the legroom will probably be a little more generous and the trunk will also hold more content. The modular transverse construction kit of the VW group allows more trunk space, according to Skoda it should be 50 liters more than the old model. Accordingly, the new Fabia comes to 380 liters.
The heart of the Skoda Fabia’s engine range will be updated versions of the 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol engine from its predecessor, which can deliver up to 110 hp. They should meet the requirements of the most modern engine generations.
Although the upcoming VW Polo overhaul will likely bring new mild-hybrid engines, the very similar built Skoda Fabia will likely stick with conventional non-hybrid engines to keep costs down. But that could change in the future because the Fabia is for the first time on the modular transverse matrix of the VW Group.
