The Fabia is practical, comfy and good value for money, and remains one of the best small cars on sale today. It isn’t as engaging to drive as the Seat Ibiza or as efficient as the Honda Jazz, but it’ll cost you less and still manages to be good in every area. If you’re after a new small car, definitely include the Fabia on your shortlist.

Opting for Colour Edition gets you jazzier looks, including 16in alloy wheels, privacy glass and door mirrors painted the same colour as the roof. You also get an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system, keyless entry and a virtual cockpit digital display behind the steering wheel.

The Fabia's entry-level 1.0 MPI 80 engine does without a turbocharger. We haven't tried it yet, but the official stats say it takes more than 15 seconds to get from 0-62mph, so expect weedy real-world performance. We'd only consider this engine if you're a dedicated town driver.
