Skoda Fabia design sketches tease new supermini’s styling

The new model is set to get bolder looks and a roomier interior

Skoda has teased the design of its new Fabia supermini again with a series of design sketches, along with revealing a number of new details about the model. 

The fourth-generation Fabia is set to be unveiled in May, and though the firm has already revealed a range of camouflaged pictures of the new car, this is our closest look at the model yet. Set to feature a bolder front grille and new full LED lighting, Skoda promises the new car will be ‘more dynamic and more expressive’ than its predecessors, while also featuring a larger rear spoiler and bigger alloy wheels, too.

It’s also set to grow significantly in size, with Skoda saying the new model is 11.1cm longer and 4.8cm wider than the car it replaces, while it’s also based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB A0 platform – which underpins the Audi A1, Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo – for the first time. 

Skoda is promising more space for passengers, while the boot will be 50 litres larger than the current car’s 330-litre trunk. This is set to give it one of the largest boots of any small car on sale today.

The new Fabia is not likely to feature any electrified powertrain options – from launch, at least – and will instead be offered to a similar range of naturally-aspirated and turbocharged petrol engines as the soon-to-be-replaced model. 

Though we don’t know the exact date the new car will be revealed, the fourth-generation Fabia will be shown in full next month, with the model likely to arrive in showrooms before the end of the year.
