Review

A practical, comfortable and good value for money. One of the best small cars on sale today.

Entry-level S trim keeps costs to a minimum and gives you standard equipment including a DAB radio, a 6.5in touchscreen infotainment system, air conditioning and automatic emergency braking. We’d suggest going for the slightly more expensive SE Comfort trim, though, as it comes with some useful extras.

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