It could be the same platform as the Fit, but cost saving things like:
1. Use the 1.3L honda city exi re-engineered to 1.2L and keeping the length less than 4 meters(tax benefits) or they may even have to develop or outsource a deisel engine less than or equal to 1.5L or how about the puny 1.0L of the insight.
2. Using interiors similar to a 4 to 5 lakh car. means reducing the 'plush' thing.
3. Using lesser options.
By the way we are talking about Toyota small car, Toyota have good number of small cars, petrol and diesel engines.
They can consider the following cars directly or their platforms:
. Toyota Succeed
. Toyota Probox (based on succeed)
. Toyota Vitz (also known as Yaris)
. Scion xA
. Toyota Aygo (this was is news in 2005)
. And ofcourse they have Diahatsu in their kitty

Actually the fabia[sedan] is to compete with the Honda city sedan.Dont know if skoda has plans to launch the fabia hatch as well.
From the TKM briefings ,for the time being they want to launch a new car which would not be segment specific,something which they did with the qualis and the innova.One car which comes to mind is the avanza another is the daihatsu terios/be-go.
Chinese Toyota avanza
