• New Fabia estate pictures released
• 3 petrol and 3 diesel engines
• Much more space than predecessor
Skoda has released more pictures of its Skoda Fabia estate, which will be fully unveiled at this year's Frankfurt motor show.
The car is larger than its predecessor, with boot capacity up 54 litres to 480 litres. Total load space, with the rear seats folded, has also expanded by 235 litres to 1460 litres.
Buyers will have a choice of six engines: 70bhp 1.2-litre, 85bhp 1.4-litre and 105bhp 1.6-litre petrols, and 70bhp 1.4-litre, 80bhp 1.4-litre and 105bhp 1.9-litre diesels.
All cars come with a five-speed gearbox, but the 1.6-litre petrol engine is also available with a six-speed automatic gearbox. The different trims will be designated 1, 2 and 3.
No prices have been announced, but they are expected to start from around £8500. The car will go on sale in Britain in early 2008.
