The second generation Fabia (internal type code 5J) was officially presented at the Geneva Auto Show in March 2007 and was sold from April 2007. However, unlike the Mk4 Seat Ibiza and Mk5 VW Polo, the second generation Fabia is not based on the VW Group's PQ25 platform, instead being based on the PQ24 platform like the first generation model. The car is however slightly larger than its predecessor and takes styling cues from the new Roomster leisure activity vehicle.
Shanghai Volkswagen Automotive introduces the new Fabia to the public at the 2008 Guangzhou Motor Show. And it sells as 2009 model year in China.
The replicas come out of the official Skoda models maker - Abrex, which is a brand of Hongwell. Very sophisticated brand.
