Default 2019 Skoda Fabia

http://www.autobild.de/artikel/skoda...-10758589.html

A facelift has arrived; new headlight shape, not sure it's an improvement though;




Rear end seems mostly unchanged, the lack of interior shots makes me think it likely didn't receive a major overhaul either, although I guess the infotainment will likely be shared with the other, newer VAG models; Engine wise, the 1.0 3 cylinders (with and without Turbo) remain the only choice, though now with a particle filter (EU6d coming up, and DI petrols produce a lot of small particles as well), Diesels are so far not mentioned (I don't think any one would miss the agricultural feeling of a small Diesel car, except some fleet managers)

Somehow the facelifts of Skoda always tend to look worse than pre-facelift

Lazy effort, could have had more styling change for the lower bumper but perhaps Skoda opted for a minor change since the replacement would be more radically styled?

It's a generic face if anything.

Sigh, this should be in New Cars... not spy shots.
