Skoda India has mildly updated the Fabia. While the Fabia is thought to be discontinued, Skoda continues to assemble the car from remaining CKD (Completely Knocked Down) kits at its Aurangabad facility.

Team BHP member ‘puchoo’ spotted this mildly updated Skoda Fabia at a dealership in New Delhi. Skoda’s new typeface and corporate logos were included for the Rapid since August this year, and now the Fabia gets them as well.

Inside, the design of the steering wheel has changed, while a new gear knob has also been introduced.

A new gearlever, which seems to be taken from the updated Rapid, has also been introduced.

The rotary knobs for the air conditioning system have been replaced by rotary switches, and the fonts used for the blower speed and ‘AC’ button are also new.

Mechanically, there are no changes to the Fabia and Skoda continues to sell the hatchback with two petrol and a single diesel engine option.

The base petrol engine is a three-cylinder 1.2-liter unit producing 75 bhp and 110 Nm of torque, while the top-end petrol gets a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine outputting 105 bhp and 153 Nm of torque. The diesel Fabia is powered by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine producing 75 bhp and 180 Nm of torque.

For the first 10 months of 2013, the Fabia averaged sales of 221 units per month.
