Skoda people carrier spied in near production-ready form
9 July 2005

With virtually no fanfare, it seems that Skoda is about to enter the mini-MPV market. This exclusive shot supplied to autocar.co.uk by one of our readers appears to show a Fabia-based MPV in near-production trim. Despite the black tape disguise, it’s clear that the car’s styling sticks closely to the donor car’s (it’s thought to be based on the longer Fabia estate) elegant and simple lines even though this market segment is increasingly defined by expressive looks. The taller roofline is accompanied by a small quarter light in the front door. The car, which is expected at the Frankfurt show this Autumn could be part of a freshening of the whole Fabia range, including styling upgrades and some new powerplants.
