Introduction

What Car? says...

If there’s one car in Skoda’s line-up that truly encompasses the brand’s ‘Simply Clever’ mantra, it has to be the Skoda Fabia Estate. The hatchback version won our What Car? Car of the Year Award a few years back, in part thanks to its fine road manners, comfortable interior and affordability, but the Estate builds on the hatch’s already impressive credentials with the addition of a truly tardis-like boot (which, if you excuse the pun, we’ll expand on later).

The current Fabia Estate was actually released way back in 2014, but it received a comprehensive facelift in 2018 that involved reprofiled bumpers, optional LED headlights, LED tail lights, an upgraded infotainment system, new wheels, an expanded range of driver assistance features and an engine line-up without diesels.

You won’t find any rival small car estates on sale. The closest efforts are estate versions of the Vauxhall Astra and Ford Focus, which both cost more, while the Dacia Logan MCV is cheaper but feels it in most regards. So if you’re looking for an affordable small estate, then the Fabia should be at the top of your list.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions, along with our recommendations for trim levels and engines. And, if you've already made up your mind, don't forget that our New Car Buying service is at your disposal; it’s never been easier to get a great deal on almost any new car, including the Skoda Fabia Estate.
