Skoda intends to bring the spruced up version of its hatchback, Skoda Fabia by the year 2014 and gradually move its progressive technology to the lines of next generation Volkswagen ‘UP!’ and Volkswagen Polo. The new Skoda Fabia will be settling on the MQB platform. This is an all new platform, which has the advantage of parts and engine designs being shared in a manner to make the manufacturing of the cars more efficient in terms of time and cost. This same platform is responsible for bulwarking many Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda and Seat cars. With the assistance of this new platform the firms constituting Volkswagen group will extricate a lot of money because of the subjacent manufacturing costs. Another benefit is that numerous models of cars can now be built on the corresponding lines at the very same plant.
Previous year, Skoda unveiled a new sketch of a concept fathomed as the ‘Vision D concept’ that is anticipated to be implemented in a notchback/sedan. The refurbished 2014 Skoda Fabia seems to be highly motivated by this concept mainly as the front-end of this vehicle and its roofline which is sloping en route to the C-pillar. The all new hatchback 2014 Skoda Fabian is equipped with a longer wheelbase and a larger boot in comparison to the inceptive one constructing the new version more spacious and huge. The 2014 Skoda Fabia becomes a little too fashionable at its rear end as well with all new bumpers and tail-lights predicated on the Vision D concept.
The present synopsis of Polo and Fabia sharing the same support anatomy and other parts display the possibility that the abutting generation Volkswagen Polo may follow the lead and become larger than its present version in the same manner like the hatchback 2014 Skoda Fabia. The current 1.2 liter MPI engine unit may be replaced by the turbo petrol 1.2 liter TSI engine, while the 1.2 liter TDI engine unit may be kept as it were and the 1.5 liter TDI diesel engine unit could possibly be used to boost the high end variant of diesel vehicles. Cylinder deactivation and start-stop technology may also be included in the abutting generation of Volkswagen Polo.
With this kind of practical strategy the firm will be able to attract more customers since the cost of production will go down and consequently the price of the cars as well.
