Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

Inside, there’s plenty of room up front, while a wide range of seat and steering wheel adjustment makes it easy to get comfortable. A little more seat bolstering would improve long-distance and high-speed cornering comfort, though.

The controls are laid out in a sensible fashion and easy to understand, while the central screen – 5.0in on S versions and 6.5in on SE and above – is simple to use. All-round visibility is good, bolstering the Fabia Estate’s ease of use.

You won’t find much visual interest, though – it’s all black and grey textured plastics, barring one flash of gloss trim across the dash. On the plus side, it’s all neatly put together and feels solid. Most of the switchgear is good, too, although the rotary knobs for the heating controls feel a little flimsy.
