Significantly larger 2021 Skoda Fabia slated for May Car News

Skoda has confirmed that the new fourth-generation Fabia will be “significantly larger” and “more expressive” than the outgoing car.

Scheduled for a reveal next month, the next-gen supermini will be the first Fabia based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 platform which is also used for the current Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo.

New design sketches, along with recent spy photos, show that it will receive a major overhaul to align with Skoda’s latest design language, including a new, larger grille. Sharp LED lights will feature at both ends, while a larger rear spoiler, sleeker mirrors and active air intakes up front will optimize aerodynamic efficiency.

Skoda says the move to the new platform means the Fabia will grow “in all dimensions”, pointing out that it is 111mm longer and 48mm wider than the current car, while the trunk will be 50 liters more larger than the 330 liters currently offered. It also promised more interior space for passengers.

The new Fabia will use the latest generation of gasoline engines from the Volkswagen Group, with most models using versions of the turbocharged three-cylinder TSI unit. In an effort to keep the Fabia affordable, Autocar understands that any of the initial engines are unlikely to be electrified.

Skoda has confirmed engines will be offered with manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
