The beloved Czech B-class model is ready to come out in 2018 with a “major design overhaul,” four years after the third generation was introduced – most likely bringing it up to snuff with its group brothers the VW Polo and Seat Ibiza.
Skoda has now decided to kick off the preview game with a teaser depicting the model – and we’re given quite a comprehensive glimpse into the new design of the supermini, especially considering there’s quite a lot of time in between now and the expected worldwide public debut set to take place in March during the Geneva Motor Show. The Fabia depicted here is not the real one, though, because we’re being treated to a design sketch – so things might actually be a little less feisty when the actual redesign comes out in the metal. The Fabia, meanwhile, is the company’s third best-selling model following in the footsteps of the larger Rapid and Octavia.
There are very few details to speak off right now, with the Czech manufacturer only explaining their subcompact model will be treated to new LED headlights – no images have been shown with the rear of the supermini, but Skoda did say they also opted for the technologically advanced light-emitting diodes, fitted to the taillights, and we could be expecting a redesign in line with the latest products from the brand, such as the Karoq SUV.
