The journalists published photos from the tests of the Skoda Fabia hatchback 2021 model year. Apparently, both new prototypes seen in the Czech Republic have already received their serial body.

Judging by the photos that the Czech publication has kindly shared, the test prototypes of the refreshed 2021 Skoda Fabia seem to be slightly larger compared to the current version of the model. The car received horizontal taillights that open onto the tailgate. The refreshed subcompact hatchback can be expected to be larger than its siblings, the VW Polo, SEAT Ibiza and the more fashionable Audi A1 Sportback.

The side profile may seem very familiar with this protruding top line, but the door handles have been pushed a little lower and the previously round fuel tank cap is now rectangular. The C-pillar seems a little wider than before, which could indicate that the new Fabia will be slightly longer than before.

We don’t have a clear idea of ​​the front fascia, but it looks like the prototype with alloy wheels had full LED headlights.

The daytime running lights at the bottom remind us of the previous generation Octavia before the facelift brought those questionable split headlights. At the rear, a roof-mounted spoiler appears to protrude more than before, and wide taillights give the new Fabia a more modern look.

Skoda has already confirmed that the next-generation Fabia will debut in 2021 and we most likely won’t have to wait long for its debut. As we look at how the next-gen Octavia and the restyled Superb were introduced in both hatchback and station wagon bodies, we hope it will be a similar story with the Fabia.

Most likely, power will come exclusively from three-cylinder petrol engines with and without turbocharging. A manual transmission and a DSG transmission will be available to buyers.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Skoda presented the updated Karoq crossover. The novelty was shown at the auto show in Guangzhou, China. The updates turned out to be more cosmetic, but made the cross more interesting.
