Having been about aback 2015 with PQ26 underpinnings that announce the Volkswagen Group’s all-knowing MQB platform, it’s safe to say the accepted Fabia is accepting a big continued in the tooth. Around all of its rivals in the supermini articulation are abundant newer, so it’s aerial time for Skoda to appear out with the fourth-generation model. Not one, but two prototypes accept been spotted accustomed the assembly anatomy for the aboriginal time.
Caught by Portál Řidiče on the D11 artery in the Czech Republic, the analysis cartage seemed to accept all of the final $.25 in place. The 2021 Fabia seems a tad beyond than the approachable archetypal and is the latest Skoda to about-face to accumbent taillights extending assimilate the tailgate. Knowing Mlada Boleslav’s modus operandi, apprehend the revamped auto auto to be beyond than its sister cars, the VW Polo, SEAT Ibiza, and the adherent Audi A1 Sportback.
The ancillary contour ability assume oh-so accustomed with that arresting high appearance line, but the aperture handles accept been confused hardly lower and the ahead annular ammunition cap is now shaped like a rectangle. The C-pillar seems hardly added than afore and it could be a clue that the new Fabia will be hardly best than before.
We don’t get a bright attending at the advanced fascia, but it appears the ancestor with the admixture auto had full-LED headlights. The daytime active lights at the basal admonish us of the previous-gen Octavia afore the facelift brought those ambiguous breach headlights. At the back, the roof-mounted addle-brain seems to be afraid out added than before, and the above added taillights accommodate the new Fabia a added avant-garde look.
While the auto will face some annealed centralized antagonism while additionally angry the Renault Clio, Peugeot 208, Opel Corsa, and added B-segment hatches, the Fabia Combi won’t accept that problem. With the barring of Ladas alone awash in assertive markets, around all added manufacturers accept alone auto wagons from their Euro lineups, acceptation the long-roof Fabia will about be in a alliance of its own.
Skoda has already accepted the next-generation Fabia will admission in 2021, and affairs are we won’t accept to delay abundant longer. Seeing as how the next-gen Octavia and Superb facelift were apparent in both auto and wagon shapes at the aforementioned time, we’re acquisitive it will be a agnate adventure with the Fabia rather than accepting to delay for the added applied derivative.
When it does arrive, apprehend ability to appear alone from three-cylinder gasoline engines, with and after turbocharging. Manual and DSG transmissions are on the menu, while a amalgam powertrain has allegedly been disqualified out. In archetypal Skoda fashion, there should be a cardinal of Simply Clever appearance and a massive burden breadth for the segment, abnormally in the case of the Fabia Combi.
