It"s the Geneva Motor Show quite soon. Its show halls look set to be a real-life spot the difference" puzzle book, with plenty of marginal facelifts revealed thus far. The latest is the Skoda Fabia, in its most up-to-date form here. We think. Grilles and headlights are always the first place to look, and some little tweaks to their shapes and the addition of LED tech lend the Fabia, in Skoda"s words, a "high-class appearance". You can now have 18in wheels, too. Perhaps not advisable on what may be predominantly an urban car. Inside, there are some redesigned instruments and a fancier media system that"ll support whatever permutation of smartphone you wish to plug into it. Grown-up safety tech has descended down to supermini level now, too, with all the blind-spot and high-beam assist systems you could wish for.
