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 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.

This turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol has 94bhp and can get the Fabia to 60mph in around 10.5sec. Okay, that's hardly going to set the world on fire, but acceleration is perfectly adequate for all types of driving. This is our favourite engine.
