Next-gen Skoda Fabia spied near the Nurburgring image

The next generation of the Skoda Fabia has been spied for the very first time while it was being tested out in Germany.

With new models rolling out, such as the Rapid, and with the updates made to the Octavia and Superb, it was just a matter of time until Skoda turned its head towards the B-segment vehicle. The new generation of the Fabia has been caught on camera for the first time while it was being tested out on city roads, close to the Nurburgring facility. The model in question has an angular exterior design which is making it look similar to new vehicles in the lineup, such as the Rapid.

It has also received a wider grille, sportier C-pillar and a more distinctive greenhouse. The resemblance to the Rapid is also seen in the rear end where we can spot the stylish tailgate with the integrated spoiler or the redesigned taillights. As far as the engine lineup goes, this remains a mystery, but chances are than small petrol and diesel units, shared with other Volkswagen-made vehicles, will be adopted. The 2015 Skoda Fabia is believed to be unveiled this October, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
