New Skoda Fabia hatchback may come soon

The Skoda Fabia hatchback is soon to receive a facelift in order to break the monotony and revive sales. Significantly, with the advent of the new Maruti Swift, there has been a significant decline in this hatchback’s sales. Now when the Swift production is jeopardized, other car makers are pumping in resources to promote their product. Recently, Mahindra has put forward the new Mahindra Verito ahead of schedule as the Maruti Swift Dzire production too was stopped due to the closedown of the Manesar plant. The Skoda Fabia currently has a price that starts at Rs 4.46 lakh and is available in petrol and diesel engine options.

The Fabia hatchback has been the hot favorite of India at the time of its launch but as soon as other offering came, its sales dwindled but still it is considered one of the best hatchbacks in India acclaimed for its safety, comfort and interiors. It is based on the Volkswagen Polo and is produced in India with high level of localization at the Chakan Plant. The cars including Hyundai i20, Ford Figo, Tata Indica eV2 and other comprise some of its rivals but its arch rival is the Swift that starts at just Rs 2000 less than this car. But being a car from India’s most trusted brand, it gets an edge over all the other cars in the segment.

Experts believe that a facelift now will be highlighting the car in a big way and it was in 2010 that the car had some changes on after it was introduced in the country in 2008. The changes that are in the making and most probable include new headlamps, a refreshed grille and new fog lamps. Overall, on the outside, there are few changes that are expected and thus Soda will be concentrating on the inside to make it more up class and imbibe changes that make it stand as a worthy buy than the Swift. New Fabia is expected to be launched in the coming months.
