Skoda has finally revealed the much anticipated next-gen Fabia through a single official image prior to its release at the Paris Motor Show later in October. The next-gen Fabia is based on the VisionC concept which was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show last year. Along with this, Skoda has also announced that all of its three facilities in Czech Republic have already resumed its functioning after two weeks of shut down for regular maintenance purpose.
The next-gen Fabia will be available in both petrol and diesel variants. It will be both wider and lower than the outgoing car but still being eligible for the excise duty benefits. Look wise the next-gen Fabia is similar to the new Polo since it is based on the VW PQ26 platform. In addition to the existing features, the next-gen Fabia will get new interiors, Start/Stop system and brake energy recovery system making it more than 17% more efficient than the outgoing model.
Coming to the technical specifications, the petrol variant will be available in three and four cylinder configurations with power figures varying from 60PS to 110PS for 1.0 and 1.2 variant respectively. The diesel variant is an all new 1.4-litre engine available in three different power outputs as the outgoing model.
