The new Fabia gets a wider body. The look is based on the company’s Vision C concept showcased at the Geneva Motor Show. It makes the car wider and shorter resulting in a distinctly muscular stance. Subtle changes in the design have caused the car to look more refined and edgy. The longer wheelbase and lower height will add to the comfort of the passengers and it has increased the boot space to an impressive 330 liters. The front fog lamps have been redesigned and the lower air intake in the shape of a smiley face will surely catch your eyes. The new set of projector beam headlights will help the driver on difficult roads. The side profile is distinguished by a distinct shoulder line and the 14 inch alloy wheels which add to the dominating look of the car. The rear has been redesigned to honor the first ever Fabia launched in the 1990s.
The most notable change in the interior is the ivory colored checkered upholstery on wide leather seats. The cabin has chrome decorations. Stainless steel pedals add to the style of the car. The central console gets a facelift and the dual tone dashboard adds to elegance. The steering wheel too has been redesigned.
