Skoda will reportedly offer a first look at its next-generation Fabia at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

The new Fabia is expected to be the first model to utilise a shortened versions of Volkswagen’s MQB platform, which underpins the new Octavia, VW Golf and other models.

According to the UK’s Autocar, the new architecture will also borrow front-end components from the smaller NSF platform, used by the tiny Volkswagen Up and Skoda Citigo.

The Fabia will be the first model to feature the so-called MQB-A platform, with the next Volkswagen Polo and Seat Ibiza models expected to follow.

The report claims that the new Fabia will be longer and wider than the current model, which measures 4000mm long and 1642mm wide, while riding on a 2460mm wheelbase.

By comparison, the current Polo has a 10mm longer wheelbase, but is slightly shorter at 3952mm and wider at 1682mm.

Expect the new Fabia’s styling to draw on the look of the new Octavia and Rapid models, introducing a sharpened style that takes much from its Volkswagen and Audi stablemates.

Watch for details to surface over the coming weeks ahead of the Geneva show, and for a production debut to occur later in the year.
