Skoda's teaser train for the new Fabia hatch continues today, with the release of two new images in the lead-up to October's Paris Motor Show.

Hitting Australia in the middle of next year, the new Fabia will represent a renewed assault on the likes of Hyundai’s top-selling i20, the Toyota Yaris and Mazda’s all-new 2, revealed this week.

These new shots, which follow an earlier illustration, offers a first look at the production model's headlight design.

As expected, the new Fabia will take on more of Skoda's new family styling, dropping its predecessor's curves for a sharper and more angular look.

That recent sketch (above) also previewed the new Fabia's overall look, although earlier spy photos confirm that we can expect a much tamer look to the final product.

Skoda says it has drawn on the recent VisionC four-door coupe for inspiration, and while the two bodystyles could not be further apart in shape, the influences are clear.

The new Fabia is expected to ride on a shortened version of the MQB platform that underpins the new Golf and Octavia, among other Volkswagen Group models.

Dubbed ‘MQB-A’, the new platform will reportedly borrow front-end components from the smaller NSF platform used by the VW Up, Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii.

The Fabia would be the first model to use the new architecture, with the next Volkswagen Polo and Seat Ibiza to follow.

Skoda has confirmed that the new Fabia will be a significant 90mm wider, and 30mm shorter road-to-roof. The current model 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.

The new Fabia's engine range has also been detailed recently, starting with a 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol unit through to a special Greenline model that lists fuel consumption at just 3.1 l/100km.
