Skoda teases its brand new sleek supermini
The new Fabia has been revealed for the first time in this teaser image
The Fabia is a cornerstone vehicle in ŠKODA's range, remaining incredibly popular to this day. However, it has been due a thorough redesign and refresh for a while now, and it seems it's now the Fabia's turn to go back to the drawing board, with this teaser image now being our first official glimpse at the upcoming small hatchback.

2021 SKODA Fabia features
Based upon the VAG 'Modular Transverse Tookit' MQB-A0 platform for the first time, which enhances interior space and includes state-of-the-art assistance and connectivity features, the upcoming Fabia will be powered by the latest generation of petrol engines.
Thanks to the change in platform, the new Fabia will be far larger than its predecessor in all areas, including the luggage capacity being increased by a further 50 litres over the already impressive capacity of the current generation.
The MQB-A0 platform also brings other improvements in terms of passive safety, a more rigid body structure, and numerous modern assistance systems that were once the domain of higher vehicle classes, but now feature on small hatchbacks such as the upcoming Fabia.
Similarities to the current-gen Fabia (above) can be seen even in the teaser images.
2021 SKODA Fabia engines
In terms of engines, ŠKODA has opted to use state-of-the-art petrol engines for the fourth generation of Fabia, with all engines coming from VAG's EVO engine generation, combining high efficiency with low emissions, front-wheel-drive, and either manual or 7-speed DSG transmissions.
The world premiere of the new ŠKODA Fabia is set for spring 2021, so we shouldn't have to wait long to see some more official images of ŠKODA's new hatchback design.
