The drawn-out, puzzle-like reveal of the 2015 Skoda Fabia continues, with two new images of the Czech brand’s city car released over the weekend.
The latest images – the fourth and fifth teasers, respectively, for the new Skoda Fabia that will debut at the 2014 Paris motor show in October – give a little more away about how the cars side panels will look.
Gone are the flattened, rounded surfaces of its predecessor – strong character lines run from the headlight towards the rear of the car. Sculpted wheel-arches add some muscle, while colour-coded door handles and side mirrors with integrated indicators add a little extra flair.
The rear-end gets further sharpening, with a more pronounced belt-line kick from the door into the glass. The more rounded body of the new model sees the D-pillar thinned out and with more of a slope to it than the current car, while an understated rear spoiler sits atop the rear windscreen.
Skoda has confirmed some details for the new Fabia, with the new model – which will be built on a variation of the existing car’s architecture – to borrow plenty of components from the facelifted Volkswagen Polo. Not only will it share 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engines with the VW model, but infotainment and interior bits are set to be spread between the two cars, too.
Stay tuned for more on the 2015 Skoda Fabia – hopefully including a full-car image, rather than another teaser or sketch – in the coming weeks.
