New Skoda Fabia revealedBack

SkodaFabiaSkoda has just released the first images of its new-generation Skoda Fabia.

Details and images for the new Skoda Fabia have just been released and the new model promises to be lower and wider than its predecessor.

The third generation of the popular supermini will be more conventional in its dimensions featuring a 30mm lower roofline and a 90mm wider chassis. Skoda hopes that its new better-balanced proportions and styling will make the Fabia more appealing to younger buyers.

Aside from its sportier looks, the new Fabia has also been designed to be more efficient than the current model, with Skoda claiming a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 17 per cent on some models.

The reduction in fuel consumption is mainly due to the lighter weight of the new Skoda Fabia model, with Skoda citing the new car will weigh as much as 65kg less than the current one.

SkodaFabia1Engines available with the new Fabia include four petrol and three diesel options. The entry level model will share the same 59bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine found in the smaller Skoda Citigo. This will be followed by another 1.0-litre petrol engine with slightly more power, and two 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines, with the most powerful capable of producing up to 109bhp.

Diesel engine options will all consist of 1.4-litre turbocharged units varying in power from 74bhp to 103bhp. In addition, a low-emission Greenline version of the Fabia will join the range in 2015 and will feature a 74bhp engine along with a start-stop system, and low rolling resistant tyres. Skoda expect this model to achieve fuel consumption of 76mpg with carbon dioxide emissions of 82g/km.

Production for the highly anticipated new Skoda Fabia will begin at the end of August with the official debut set to take place at the Paris Motor Show in October this year.
