Skoda has announced the third generation Fabia Combi will be introduced next week at the Paris Motor Show.

Joining the already unveiled hatchback, Skoda's Fabia Combi will look virtually the same as its shorter brother but obviously it will have a longer rear overhang to accommodate what will end up being the biggest trunk in this class. The outgoing model offers an already enormous 505-liter trunk but its successor will go even further with a capacity estimated to stand at 520 liters. For more room, folding down the rear seats will increase the available capacity to around 1,500 liters.

The Skoda Fabia Combi is going to be 90mm wider and 31mm lower than the outgoing model and will be powered by Euro 6-compliant three- and four-cylinder engines. The gasoline offerings will kick off with a naturally-aspirated three-cylinder 1.0-liter MPI with 60 HP (44 kW) and go up to a turbocharged four-cylinder 1.2-liter TSI rated at 110 HP (81 kW).

A 4-cylinder 1.4-liter direct-injection common-rail turbodiesel will be available with 75 HP (55 kW) and 105 HP (77 kW). Sometime next year a more economical 75 HP GreenLine variant will join the range with kinetic energy recuperation technology and a start/stop system.

Besides the Fabia hatchback and estate, Skoda will also showcase in Paris the rugged Octavia Scout.
