The 2015 Skoda Fabia has been snagged testing for the first time at the Nurburgring race track in Germany.

The redesigned B-Segment hatchback has a more angular exterior that echoes with the design of the Octavia and the Rapid (European spec). The car sports all the design features seen in these new Skodas such as the rectangular headlamps, upward kink at the rear window, a wider grille, larger greenhouse and a sporty C-Pillar design.

The new Skoda Fabia sports similar headlamps and grille as the new Octavia.

The taillight is also inspired by the Rapid (with the signature C-Shape graphic) and the tailgate receives an integrated spoiler.

There is no confirmation yet on what lies beneath the bonnet, but expect a similar story as the current Fabia with naturally aspirated engines between the 1.0-1.6-liter displacement range in naturally aspirated guise, 1.0-1.4-liter displacement range in turbocharged guise for petrol, and 1.2-1.5-liter displacement range for the diesels.

The new Skoda Fabia is expected at the dealerships this fall, so a Paris Motor Show debut (starts on the first week of October) is very likely. As per media reports, Skoda India is keen to relaunch the Fabia when the new generation model is ready.
