Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Skoda Fabia offers plenty of space for those sitting in the front. True, you don't get quite as much as you do in the Honda Jazz, but there’s still oodles of head and leg room for anyone over six feet tall. You won’t feel pinched at the sides, either, thanks to the generous width (for the class) between the doors.

There’s storage space to match, including well-sized door bins, trays, cubbies and a massive glovebox.

Boot space

Boot space in the Fabia is very impressive. We managed to fit six carry-on-sized suitcases under the parcel shelf, which is the most we’ve fitted into any small car, and is a match for cars from the class above, including the Ford Focus.

There are lots of accessories available to add versatility. If you pay extra for the Simply Clever Package 1, you'll get nets to stop items sliding around and clip-on devices to divide up the boot. 

There is a pronounced drop down from the opening onto the boot floor, but this can be mitigated by adding an optional height-adjustable boot floor (part of the Simply Clever Package 2).
