The third generation Skoda Fabia has been digitally imagined based on the styling cues showed by prototypes in recent spy photographs.

As we get closer to Fabia's introduction at Paris Motor Show in October, more and more spy shots of the Czech hatchback are emerging. These photos have served as foundation for a new render that paints an accurate picture of what to expect from the real deal. As you can see, it will look essentially like a smaller Rapid Spaceback with familiar design cues typical of a recent Skoda product.

The 2015 Fabia will ride on a tweaked PQ25 platform, the same one utilized for the outgoing model which itself was an update of the PQ24 platform used by the first generation Fabia. Volkswagen has decided not to use the MQB architecture since that would have probably increased development costs and consequently the model's price tag.

Skoda is preparing hatchback and wagon versions of the new Fabia and there might be a sedan once again, a body style which skipped the second generation. Citing slow sales, Skoda has announced a vRS version is not being considered for its third-gen supermini while the engine lineup will be largely carried over from the facelifted Volkswagen Polo.

Since the 2015 Fabia will receive its public debut at the beginning of October in Paris, expect the first official images and details in September.
