Superb performance with excellent economy and high standard specification. Great value for money. VW build quality and reliablility. Understated but purposeful design. A practical 5 door hot hatchback that is a joy to own, drive and generally live with. It doesn't cost a lot to insure or run either. Excellent 3 year new car warranty.
No optional leather interior or tiptronic gearbox available in the UK, but they had to leave something for VW and Audi to offer.
The Skoda Fabia a truly brilliant car. Much bigger in character inside than it would appear, it performs on all fronts being quick (particularly mid-range) yet frugal (50+mpg easily achievable) and supremely confortable. In short it is the 'rational consumers' choice having 5 doors, ABS disc brakes all round, aircon, sports seats and RDS CD radio and being very easy on the pocket whilst always providing a smile. The torque from the diesel engine makes this car a pleasure to drive in the real world, effortlessly provding the grunt to charge up hills or squirt past slower vehicles safely.
