Czech Polo twin to get major overhaul

The 2019 Skoda Fabia has been teased this week, ahead of a reveal at the 2018 Geneva motor show in March.

While details of the updated light hatch are few and far between, Skoda is touting the 2019 Fabia as a "major design overhaul" including the availability of LED headlights and tail-lights for the first time.

Other highlights will include a fresh exterior look and "state-of-the-art technology", likely to bring the Czech hatch and wagon in line with the upcoming new-generation Volkswagen Polo.

Skoda claims the revised design will give the Fabia a "much stronger look", while we reckon the new technology will include adaptive cruise control and the Volkswagen Group's latest infotainment systems - potentially including the availability of a fully-digital instrument cluster.

Last month, the company's local arm confirmed it was planning to launch a "major update" for the Fabia in August.
