The Skoda Fabia is a fine small car and incredible value for money if you choose carefullyread the full model review
Based on SE spec, Monte Carlo trim adds black 16in alloy wheels, a black grille and door mirrors, a body-coloured rear spoiler, front foglights, LED daytime running lights, Monte Carlo badging and a panoramic glass sunroof. Inside, additional equipment includes front sports seats, a red centre console, a multi-function sports steering wheel and Monte Carlo badging on the front door inserts. Unless you really love the looks, we’d stick to SE, though.
This turbo petrol engine feels slightly more potent than the 1.0 TSI 95, but it’s not quicker enough to warrant spending more money when the lower-powered version is as good as it is. If you want an automatic gearbox, though, this is your only option. The seven-speed DSG is slick and smooth, while a six-speed manual is standard.
