Public premiere at the Paris Motor Show.
Here are the first images of the 2015 Skoda Fabia on the road. Until now, we could only see the couple of press images released by Skoda, but these spyshots show what the hatchback looks like when it hasn't been snapped in a studio.
The new Fabia will enter production later this month at Skoda's main plant in Mlada Boleslav. The VW-owned car maker has confirmed that the public premiere of the new Fabia will take place at the Paris Motor Show in early October, and European sales will start sometime later this year.
Powering the new Fabia are three- and four-cylinder petrol and three-cylinder diesel engines. Starting the range is a 1.0-liter MPi, while the more powerful petrol variant uses the 1.2-liter TSI engine. The diesel variants make use of a 1.4-liter TDI engine. Fuel efficiency wise, the Fabia is claimed to be 17 percent more efficient than its predecessor.
An Indian launch of the Fabia is not on Skoda's immediate priority as the brand focuses on selling cars like the Rapid, Octavia and Superb.
Competitors: VW Polo, Maruti Swift, Honda Jazz, Tata Bolt, Hyundai i20
Expected Price: INR 5 – 8 lakhs, ex-Showroom
