VIENNA – Skoda Auto a.s., the Czech Volkswagen AG subsidiary, will unveil its next-generation Fabia at the Geneva auto show next spring.

The new hatchback measures 157 ins. (399.2 cm) in overall length. The front-end design resembles Skoda’s newest model, the Roomster.

Seven engines will be available – four gasoline and three diesels. Both the 1.2L 3-cyl. 59-hp and 68-hp gasoline mills have increased performance and provide the car with more elasticity, the auto maker says.

The new Fabia hatchback also will offer a 4L 85-hp and 1.6L 4-cyl. 103-hp gasoline engine. The diesel range includes two 1.4L TDI PD engines producing 68 hp and 79 hp, respectively, as well as a 1.9L 103-hp TDI PD.

Skoda says it will launch the next-generation Fabia station wagon later.

Horst Muehl, Skoda’s member of the board responsible for production and logistics, says there are no plans for a next-generation Fabia sedan. The model will be phased out.

The new Skoda Fabia also will be produced in China.
