Two years ago, Skoda unveiled the Scala, which was known as a replacement for the Rapid in the current line-up. Starting that moment, the Czech car manufacturer had two cars almost competing in the same segment: Fabia and Scala.
Yes, Fabia is smaller, but there are not so many car manufacturers that can offer two models in the B-C segment. As a result, a few rumors said that Skoda will drop the Fabia and the current model won’t see a new generation.
Well, all those rumors were wrong, because Thomas Schäfer, the current Skoda CEO, has made a special announcement. In 2021 we will see a new generation of Fabia, which is a very good decision.
Schäfer didn’t go into any details, only saying it’ll be a “great car” and that his expectations are high for the revamped supermini.
According to some rumors, the next generation Fabia will be manufactured on the current MQB A0 platform, the same one used on Volkswagen Polo, Seat Ibiza and Audi A1.
