Errm… The Skoda Fabia Isn’t At The Top of Most Wishlists

Skoda Fabia MK4 Spy Shot DailyCarBlog

With a slow news month, the motoring press seemed to have nothing to cover, no story to tell. And then suddenly like a meteorite appearing out of nowhere, followed by a sonic boom, the Skoda Fabia was making all the headlines. The all-new MK4 Fabia is soon to be revealed in the coming months. A next-generation prototype was caught testing on public roads somewhere in a picturesque region of the Czech Republic.

There isn’t much to see, although eagle-eyed observers have spotted the Fabia test mule has 4-front parking sensors as opposed to three on the current-gen. The all-new Fabia will adopt the Volkswagen MBQ platform which is a breadmaker for many other VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda products. Indeed the Fabia is built around the same underpinnings as the disappointing VW Polo.

The next-generation Fabia will be slightly larger than the current generation and will continue to depend on tiny 1.0-litre 3-cylinder and 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engines. Personally speaking, the Fabia isn’t the type of car I would put at the top of my list. Unless I am scrapping the bottom of the barrel and have absolutely no other choice.

But hey Skoda might surprise and do a decent job of piquing my interest. The next-gen Skoda Fabia is expected to launch later this year.
