Skoda, which is exhibiting at BusinessCar Live, will debut the estate version of its recently launched Fabia supermini at the Frankfurt motor show next month.

Skoda’s new load-lugger is 7mm longer and 46mm higher than the model it replaces, making it 4239mm long, 1642mm wide and 1498mm tall.

Boot capacity has grown by 54 litres (up to 480 litres) with the rear seats in place and by 235 litres with the rear seats folded flat to give a total of 1460 litres

The engine line-up replicates that of the hatch version and includes two ultra-low CO2 1.4-litre diesels.
