A great all-rounder that's smart, comfortable and roomy inside, and good to drive. While it’s pricier to buy outright than some rivals, that’s largely offset by competitive monthly finance rates and strong resale values. However, hybrid rivals offer better fuel economy and the Skoda Fabia is even more comfy and refined.
