The Skoda Fabia is an excellent supermini which helped to reinvent the carmaker as the producer of well-built and reliable cars after years of being the butt of jokes. The Skoda Fabia is not only spacious and solid, it’s also a comfortable car to drive and it is head and shoulders above the VW Polo, which is a big surprise considering that it shares most of the Polo's parts and components. It's also a lot cheaper than the Polo, though the entry-level model is a little bit too basic for most people's needs.
The bottom line is that the Fabia is a reliable supermini that is great fun to drive and is really good value. There's a wide range of versions to choose from: the incredibly frugal 1.2 litre diesel Greenline model which will return an astonishing 83mpg on the combined cycle. And because it only emits 89g/km of CO2 it is exempt, under current rules, from road tax. It's also more efficient than the widely-respected VW Polo BlueMotion. The range also includes the impressive vRS model which is fun and fast. It has a 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine will return around 45mpg.
The Skoda Fabia’s ride is comfortable thanks to the soft suspension which soaks up bumps on rough roads which has been set up for comfort rather than sporty performance. The drive itself is pleasant enough; it's not quite as sporty as some but it's capable and impressive. On board, there is plenty of room for four adults with the dashboard well laid out and made of quality materials. The boot is also larger than the Polo though the estate version of the Fabia has an impressive boot size of 1,485 litres when the rear seats are folded down. Skoda has now put paid to the jokes about its reliability and is one of the most reliable car makers around and this is reflected in the build quality of the Skoda Fabia.
