Skoda Fabia to Make A Comeback in India
In a bid to increase its market share in the Indian market,Skoda, the Czech carmaker, is planning to re-launch the Fabia premium hatchback in India, claimsMoney Control. Owing to the poor sales performance of the old Fabia, the company had phased it out in 2013. The company might consider launching the new-generation model of the product that made its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Upon its launch, the vehicle will take on the likes of Hyundai i20, and Maruti Suzuki Swift among other contenders in the segment.

The new-generation Skoda Fabia has grown bigger in dimensions as compared to the discontinued model, and takes its design inspiration from the new Octavia. The car features a 30mm lower roofline and is 90mm wider than the discontinued model. Despite the fact that the car is dimensionally bigger than the old model, the company claims that it will be 17 per cent more fuel efficient than before, thanks to its lighter weight. The new Fabia is about 65Kg less in weight.

While the new-gen model will have 3 diesel and 4 petrol engines in the global markets, the India-bound model is likely to share its engine options with the Volkswagen Polo.
