A practical, comfortable and good value for money. One of the best small cars on sale today.
The trimSee full equipment
Top-of-the-range SE L trim won’t set you back much more than an entry-level Volkswagen Polo. Even so, it gets you 16in alloy wheels, rear electric windows, a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system, built-in sat nav and dual-zone climate control. It's worth considering if you like a few creature comforts.
The engineSee full engine specs
The most powerful engine you can have in the Fabia comes with a six-speed (rather than five-speed) manual gearbox as standard, and is also the only engine that's available with an optional auto 'box. Unless you need the latter, we'd stick with the 1.0 TSI 95 – it's cheaper and isn't dramatically slower.
