Škoda's B-segment hatchback is all set to enter its fourth generation and is expected to debut globally sometime in Q2 2021.
We've been seeing spy shots of the all-new Fabia testing for quite some time now and Škoda has finally put a clock on the hatchback's arrival with a new teaser release. The image gives us a pretty good glimpse of the new, fourth-gen model's silhouette that serves as an instant reminder of the bigger Škoda Scala. So, it looks like the new Fabia could very well be a shrunken-down version of the Scala, which is a positive sign.
This point is further reinforced by the fact that the new Fabia is built on the VW Group's MQB-A0 platform – the same underpinnings found in the Scala and in an array of VW models like the Polo and the T-Cross. Thanks to its new innards, the fourth-gen Fabia will also be considerably bigger than the outgoing model and thanks to the bigger footprint, it will also go one-up on the practicality quotient, courtesy of a boot that's bigger by up to 50 litres (380 litres total) and, of course, a bigger cabin.
Though the final specs are yet to be revealed, Škoda, for now, has confirmed that the new Fabia will be powered by the VW Group's range of TSI EVO engines, making it a petrol-only model. Given Fabia's size, it's very likely that Škoda might only stick to the 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI EVO unit. For an undiluted driving experience, the fourth-gen Fabia will offer the choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG gearbox.
More details are expected to be revealed with subsequent teasers.
