A replacement for Skoda’s positively ancient second-generation Fabia hatch, revealed in 2007 and still on sale today, has been spied testing this week.

Spotted at the Nurburgring course, the new Fabia is clearly in the advanced stages of development, with its final look disguised by only a thin layer of camouflage.

As expected, the new Fabia will continue with Skoda’s no-nonsense styling language that centres on sharp lines and an overall industrial look.

The unique look of the current model has been discarded for the new generation, with the 2015 Fabia moving to a more conventional light-hatch design.

We could however see the Cooper- and Audi A1-like roof styling continue, with a contrasting colour to add a unique styling element to the otherwise utilitarian design.

This spied test car also reveals Skoda’s broad new grille evolution, along with sharp new headlights again inspired by the new Octavia and Rapid models.

Mechanically, 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.

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.

As for launch timing, the new Fabia is expected to appear at October’s Paris Motor Show. Stay tuned for updates.
