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.

If you can stretch to paying a bit extra, SE L will be a tempting choice because it adds plenty of extra creature comforts and only costs a bit more than an entry-level Polo. Those extras include 16in alloy wheels, rear electric windows, an upgraded 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system with built-in sat nav, dual-zone climate control, cruise control with a speed limiter, keyless start/stop and a handy umbrella stored in the driver’s door.

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.
