The Skoda Fabia is practical, comfortable and good value for money, and remains one of the best small cars on sale today. It's not be as engaging 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.
The trimSee full equipment
If you want to keep costs down, entry-level SE Comfort trim is the one to go for. It manages to undercut almost all the Fabia’s rivals but still gives you 15in alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors, a height-adjustable driver’s seat (with adjustable lumbar support), a leather-wrapped steering wheel and handbrake lever, LED headlights, manual air conditioning and a 6.5in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

If you opt for any trim other than Monte Carlo, the 1.0 TSI 110 will be the most powerful engine you can have. Unlike the less powerful engines, it comes with a six-speed (rather than five-speed) manual gearbox as standard, and is also available with an optional automatic gearbox. Unless you need an automatic, we'd stick with the 1.0 TSI 95 – it's cheaper but not dramatically slower.
