Introduction

What Car? says...

If you’re looking for a small car that’s very practical, the Skoda Fabia is unquestionably one of the best options on the market.

The hatchback version won the What Car? Car of the Year Award a few years back, in part thanks to its fine road manners, comfortable interior and affordability. The Fabia Estate builds on the hatch’s already impressive credentials with the addition of an even larger boot.

If you need an automatic gearbox, then some versions of the Fabia Estate are offered with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox that works very well. You’ll pay a bit of a premium, but it’s not an unreasonable amount.

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.
