About 10 canicule ago, we got an official acceptance that Skoda is alive on the next-generation Fabia through the articulation of the company’s new CEO, Thomas Schäfer. He told media assembly that the new supermini will access ancient in 2021 and today we can allotment the actual aboriginal photos of the car.
No, we are not kidding. What you see in the arcade beneath is (most likely) an aboriginal mule for the Fabia still cutting the anatomy of a Volkswagen Polo. The Czech B-segment bear will assuredly about-face to Volkswagen Group’s MQB A0 belvedere that additionally underpins the Volkswagen Polo, SEAT Ibiza, and Audi A1. This calmly explains the Polo clothes as Skoda is apparently not accommodating to unhide the architectonics of the new Fabia yet. In fact, this could be the actual aforementioned mule that Skoda’s new CEO collection afore adage “I can acquaint you already that I can’t delay to accompany that car to market.”
Even admitting this ancestor is not cutting its assembly body, it has already been appropriate that the new Fabia will accept a funkier architectonics for its fourth generation. Not abundant abroad can be said about the model’s actualization but it’s apparently a safe bet to accept it’ll be heavily aggressive by the Scala, new Octavia, and Kamiq.

Being underpinned by the MQB A0 agency the new Fabia will allotment about its absolute abstruse abject with the sister models Polo and Ibiza. This includes the engines, transmissions, and added technologies, which will be aggregate amid the three hatchbacks, additional the Audi A1. As a ancillary note, the about-face to the new architectonics apparently agency there won’t be a new Fabia wagon.
In the end, one affair we’d like to point out is that there’s still a adventitious that this is a analysis car for a facelifted adaptation of the Volkswagen Polo. The Czech allotment plates and the sensors absorbed to the caster hubs acquaint us this is 99.9 percent a Fabia mule but we’ll leave the aperture 0.01 percent accessible for a active Polo.
