Spyshots: Skoda Fabia Scout Facelift

We have to admit, out of all of the Volkswagen Group subsidiaries, Czech manufacturer Skoda was the quietest one last year, with few launches and fewer even complaints about the economic crisis. We expect 2010 to be basically the same, except for few minor tweaks here and there.

So is the case with the new interpretation of the Fabia Combi, with all the Scout guise which comes with it. The facelift is in fact a minor nick'n'tuck, with changes here and there on the exterior of few (if not any) interior modifications.

As you can see, the 2010 version of the Fabia brings along a slimmer chrome bar above the actual grille, a sleeker front bumper, new fog lamps
and narrower headlights (if anything, this last feature makes the car look even uglier than it already did, some might say).

Under the hood, nothing much also... Skoda will employ the same line-up as today, with 1.2-, 1.4- and 1.6-liter petrol engines developing in between 60 and 105 hp. Diesel powered units will encompass 1.4 and 1.9 liters TDIs, with outputs from 70 to 105 hp. Additionally, the carmaker's new 1.4-liter 80-hp GreenLine will also be made available.

Being a Scout, the new Fabia will most likely include several of the options availble on today's version, including cruise control, ESP or variable boot floor. Skoda will also provide the same elevated ground clearance - for some reason, not so distinguishable in these spyshots.
