Skoda Fabia Scout Design Concept: the lowdown

Few surprises are in store – it follows the formula set down by the Roomster and Octavia Scouts. So it’s based on the estate version of the new Fabia, but has only ‘visual off-road features’. That means no four-wheel drive to you and me, so it’s another weird faux-by-four. Skoda has concentrated on plastic cladding and chromed roofrails on this concept car that’s surely a dead cert to enter production.

There is one interesting feature though – a pop-out bench that slides out from the boot floor, so you can perch on the boot for picnics. But is that enough to make this worthy of the Scout name? The next big news from Skoda is the all-new Superb due at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show in March. It is said to be just as big as today’s cavernous saloon, but with a welcome dollop of extra style. Don’t hold your breath for a Superb Scout though…
