The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The driving position in the Skoda Fabia is excellent, and it’s easy to set everything up just how you want it, although entry-level S models don't offer seat-height adjustment. The seat itself is comfortable and has plenty of shoulder support, and if you go for SE Comfort trim or above, you get adjustable lumbar support to keep you in a good posture on longer journeys. 

There are proper buttons and dials to control the air conditioning, so changing the interior temperature isn't too distracting (in the Peugeot 208, you have to use small icons on the touchscreen).

Basic LED headlights are fitted to all versions, although full LED headlights are optional and available only on range-topping SE L trim.

Sat nav and infotainment

We’ve yet to try the infotainment system that comes with the entry-level Fabia S and SE Comfort trims, but at 6.5in it’s smaller than the screens in most modern small cars.

We have tried the larger 9.2in set-up that comes with top-tier SE L trim, though. Unfortunately, it can be prone to crashing and isn't the most responsive touchscreen in the class. The system in the Volkswagen Polo is better, but the best in this class (by far) is the one in the Mini, with its simple iDrive rotary controller and intuitive operating system.
