Image shows a modern and fresh hatchback model.

Taking cues from design elements found in the Skoda VisionC show car, the Czech company calls the sketch of its next-generation Fabia ‘modern, dynamic and emotional.’

Aside from the exterior and overall shape, Skoda adds that the interior will have ‘fresh design concepts’ but does not divulge any more information.

This is only the first design sketch of the hatchback and from here we can surmise that the Fabia will target the younger city-dwelling market.  It is more sporty thanks to the involvement of Skoda Motorsport in providing the ‘inspiration for the final design.’  So it may not be a far-fetched idea to imagine the Fabia to have a more dynamic drive to it.

The new Skoda Fabia will be wider and lower than the previous model and will offer an interior that is open to various customization options for customers.
