Škoda Fabia 1.2TSI SE L review
What is it?
THE third generation Fabia since its launch in the UK in 1999, the little car gets bigger and more refined to make a serious case for itself in the corporate car park.
Yet in among all the executive-like gadgets and driver aids you’ll now find on the new Fabia, there’s one optional extra that will please your fleet manager or commercial director. SmartGate, available at just £100 extra, will allow your line manager to monitor exactly how well you’re driving the company wheels through a simple mobile phone app!
the car is a very personable vehicle offering the user-chooser more than 90 body panel colour combinations
However, in every other aspect the car is a very personable vehicle offering the user-chooser more than 90 body panel colour combinations and a level of comfort and trim that would have demanded a budget pushing deep into executive car regions just a few years ago.
If there is one model that proves Škoda has come of age and justifies its 1M-plus vehicle sales, then the little Fabia is probably it by proving itself every bit as compliant in both drive and quality of build as any other premium badge.
What is it?
As Škoda’s version of the parent company’s VW Polo, the Fabia is a compact hatchback that manages to feel premium and practical boasting the largest boot size in class with lots of carry hooks and the Wellington boot holder now a firm favourite with many owners.
