The new Skoda Fabia will get a station wagon version
Skoda Fabia station wagon will be built on the MQB A0 platform and equipped with three-cylinder petrol engines.
Skoda will release the next-generation Fabia in addition to the hatchback and in the station wagon. Skoda CEO Thomas Schaefer wrote about this on LinkedIn. The premiere of the car will take place next year.
As Motor1 suggests, the car will be built on the MQB-A0 platform. Now, this is also used by Volkswagen Polo, Seat Ibiza, and Audi A1 Sportback. The range of hatchback and station wagon engines will include three-cylinder petrol engines. The units will work together with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed "automatic" with a double-clutch.
Skoda has no plans to equip the new Fabia with diesel engines due to tougher environmental regulations in Europe. In addition, the Czechs are not going to release a hybrid or electric version of the Fabia. Whether a charged version of the Fabia RS will appear in the lineup is still unknown.
The design of the car borrows the features of Skoda Kamiq, Scala, and Octavia. Also, the compact hatchback will get the latest Skoda infotainment system. Most likely, after changing the platform, the dimensions of the car will not change much.
