The Skoda Fabia is a fine small car and incredible value for money if you choose carefully. We reckon the 1.0 TSI 95 in SE trim makes the most sense considering the performance and equipment you get. If you want a small car that's even roomier and cheaper then look at the fantastic Dacia Sandero, while if it's superior handling you're after, try the dynamic Ford Fiesta.get the best price
The trimSee full equipment
A glance at the equipment list confirms why SE makes more sense than entry-level S trim. You get 15in alloy wheels, air-con, rear parking sensors, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, an umbrella, front fog lights, an alarm, six speakers, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto and a height-adjustable passenger seat. It's our favourite trim.

The 59bhp 1.0-litre MPI petrol engine that kicks off the range is just about adequate around town, but you’ll find its shortage of oomph frustrating on faster roads (0-62mph takes 16.2sec).
