Skoda will once again offer a station wagon version of its small-car range when it replaces its Fabia next year, continuing with a body style that has disappeared from Europe's largest segment after Renault and Peugeot exited the niche market.
"We will again have a combi [wagon] version," Skoda CEO Thomas Schaefer wrote on his LinkedIn page.
"This is very important to us because it underlines our commitment to offering affordable, practical mobility in the entry-level segments," he said.
Schaefer said the wagon will go onsale after the market launch of the fourth-generation Fabia hatchback. Skoda will unveil the new Fabia next year.
Skoda said earlier this year that the wagon accounts for 34 percent of the Fabia's overall sales.
Skoda has offered a wagon version of the Fabia range since it was launched in 2000 and has sold 1.5 million of them since, it said in a statement in September.
