2014 Skoda Fabia product development is making steady progress. Auto Tip, a Czechoslovakia based print magazine has published two images and details of 2014 Skoda Fabia. Though the authenticity of the images are yet to be confirmed, the magazine claims these are actual images. The new Skoda Fabia will make it’s debut by 2014 spring. The model is based on Skoda’s VisionD concept which was featured in Geneva Motor Show.
The narrow headlight and comparatively larger front grille are borrowed from VisionD concept. The new Fabia will be built on VW’s MQB platform. The hatchback will be lighter compared to current generation Fabia and may have slightly longer wheel base. According to the source, the 2014 Skoda Fabia will have a larger trunk, probably 350 ltrs in place of current 315 ltrs trunk.The rear design looks tidier than current version. The bumper design is simple but perfectly matches to other elements. Two important elements worth mentioning are C-Pillar and rear door frame designs. We should wait and see how the production version will be conceptualized. The overall design look clean but the wheel arches looks out of proportion.
2014 Skoda Fabia will get latest generation petrol and diesel engines. A 1.2 Ltr TDI and TSI engine may find it’s place under new Fabia’s hood. The engine may get company of current gear box options.
Skoda has not divulged much details about new Fabia. In India Skoda Fabia is yet to get a strong footing in our highly competitive hatchback segment. Skoda India was supposed to announce the launch of Citigo in India. But Skoda has not made any announcement about future of the car. We think Fabia will act as base for Skoda India’s product portfolio for few more years. So 2014 Skoda Fabia will hit Indian market after it’s international debut.
