Review

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.

get the best price

Trim: SE

A glance at the equipment list confirms why SE makes more sense than entry-level S trim. Alloy wheels, air-con, rear parking sensors and a leather steering wheel and gearlever all feature.

Engine: 1.0 TSI

You're better off spending a bit extra on this turbocharged petrol engine over the entry-level 1.0 MPI. It has load more low-rev pull, so is better suited to B-roads and motorways, and generally just makes for a more relaxed driving experience.
