Skoda Fabia official pictures

The Skoda Fabia is a small car that offers you the space and versatility required for everyday life. With enough room for 5 people and still with plenty of space in the back for your luggage, it's the ideal small family car. Regardless of whether it’s the weekly shop, the annual holiday, or a trip to the garden centre, the Fabia’s boot won’t be lacking the space you need. And we are about to see a new face of the Fabia very soon as the Czech manufacturer decided to present the third generation of the vehicle at the Paris Motor Show in October.

The first official images of the Skoda Fabia have been made public, despite the fact that the official debut of the vehicle will take place only in October. The new generation vehicle is based on the PQ26, the same platform used by Volkswagen on its Polo model.  This means that the new Fabia weights 65 kg (143 lbs) less compared to its predecessor with the entry level model tipping the scales at 980 kg (2,160 lbs).

The new Skoda Fabia will benefit of three and four cylinders engines Euro 6 compliant. On the gasoline side, the range entry level will have a three-cylinder direct-injection 1.0-liter MPI with 60 PS (44 kW) and a four-cylinder 1.2-liter TSI unit possessing 110 PS (81 kW). At launch a new three-cylinder 1.4-liter common-rail direct-injection diesel engine unit will be available with generating either 75 PS (55 kW) and 105 PS (77 kW). Later in 2015, a 1.4 TDI unit with 75 PS (55 kW) that comes with start/stop and kinetic energy recuperation technology will make room in the fleet.  In a few months we’ll have all the necessary details regarding the vehicle.
