Skoda has released images of the new third-generation Fabia that is claimed to be up to 17 percent more efficient than before. That means, when it goes on sale early in 2015, the most efficient Fabias will be capable of averaging more than 91mpg with CO2 emissions of less than 80g/km.

So far Skoda is keeping tight-lipped about all the technical details ahead of the Fabia’s official unveiling at the Paris Motor Show on 2 October, but from these early pictures it’s clear the small Skoda has adopted styling cues from its bigger brother, the Skoda Octavia.

According to head designer Jozef Kaban, the new Fabia has also been created to be a more dynamic, sportier vehicle than the one it replaces and that, when it goes on sale, ‘sets new standard in its segments.’

Inside, Kaban says the Fabia will be more spacious and practical than the car it replaces with the largest boot in its class.

All-new tech will also be introduced to the Fabia range, such as advanced MirrorLink technology– an infotainment system that harnesses smartphone software for access to your phone’s music and sat-nav.

Finally, the new Fabia will also offer greater levels of customisation than ever before with 15 exterior colours offered plus the choice of differing colours for the roof, alloys and even door mirrors.

Pricing for the third-generation Fabia is expected to kick off at around £10,000.
