Skoda is planning to introduce a new Fabia concept next month, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in a premiere.
The Czech based automaker Skoda is currently working on a third generation of the Fabia and a first step into pulling the wraps off the brand new model will take place in Geneva, next month, when the company will officially unveil a concept car, based on the model in question. The announcement hasn’t been made official by the carmaker and it’s actually part of a report published by the guys at Autocar. According to our source, the model in question will still be using the next-gen VW Polo for “inspiration”.
The new Skoda Fabia concept is said to ride on a shortened version of the MQB platform, named the MQB-A, and it will be longer and wider than the current model. This will be translated into more trunk space and into a more spacious cabin. As far as the engine lineup goes, the production version of the model will be receiving TSI and TDI versions, mostly with three cylinders. The vRS variant will be dropped however, sadly, because of the poor sales of the model. The production Fabia, in its new generation, is believed to be unveiled during the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
