Skoda Fabia hatchback has been over-shadowed by the success of the Volkswagen Polo and it has forced Skoda to work on the older Fabia, which could be renovated by the year 2014. The detailed description of what the new Skoda Fabia will be like has already hit the internet. The platform will be upgraded in the 2014 Skoda Fabia where the previous PQ24 platform is to be replaced by the refurbished MQB platform. This new MQB platform will come with the attributes of shared parts and architectural benefits, which will consequently result in saving more time and cost on the car produced in this manner.
This new MQB platform will allow the 2014 Skoda Fabia to be a lot lighter in comparison to the existing version while its wheelbase will be more protracted. Because of the prolonged wheelbase, the 2014 Skoda Fabia will be equipped with a larger boot space, which will have a luggage capacity of 350 litres. The machine beneath the bonnet will be having an upgraded engine in both petrol and diesel variants. The TSI turbo 1.2-litre petrol engine and the TDI turbo 1.2-litre diesel engine will be revivified before depositing in the car. However, the gearbox will not get any sort of up-gradation neither it will be replaced by something better than what the existing Fabia already has.
The architecture of 2014 Skoda Fabia is the other major factor, which will ensure that a lot of potential buyer gets attracted to it with just one glimpse of it. The new hatchback is based on the latest “Vision D” design philosophy of brand Skoda. Here the car is relinquished with a fresh C-pillar and latest designed tail-lights that are definite to grab the attention of the audience. The grille on front is new with a set of headlamps which are stretched in a jocundly manner. With this kind of fresh concept in designing it seems the whole game will change in favour of Skoda Fabia where Volkswagen Polo may also have to get itself a facelift in order to retain its acquired positionin the top premium hatchback segment in the automobile industry.
The customers will be waiting impatiently for the launch of this new avatar of Skoda Fabia which will surely make it some sort of a luxurious hatchback, but will be coming in a less competitive price than a premium hatchback. The earning youth as well as the youth who wants to own a car may buy this new Fabia as their first car as it would be something between a sedan and a compact car, yet it will give the handling and manoeuvre compatibility of a compact car with sedan like luxury. Since it will be lightweight, the fuel efficiency will be increased, which would be an added attribute.
