Skoda Fabia Review

Those of you backing away from this page in distaste because I'm featuring a Skoda - Come back, we LOVE Skoda now, didn't you see the ad where they made a car out of cake!  I actually love Skoda and the old reputation is so far in the past its not worth mentioning.  You can tell more than ever driving the new Fabia that Skoda is part of the Volkswagen group, inside most of the dashboard, switches and buttons are straight out of the Golf.  

Now this is a great little motor, the Sport version is the latest variant to be released and will fit into the range just below the top of the range Fabia 3.   It feels sturdy and well put together, handles nicely and its new flared body gives it a tougher look that Vin Diesel flexing those gorgeous pecs (excuse me whilst I have a little day dream).  The model I tested was the top-or-the-sport-range 1.9TDI Diesel engine with 105bhp.   It's a fun and nippy little engine that's happy flying round town or sitting at 70mph on the motorway.

The Sport comes with a fair bit of kit as standard, all the normal electric stuff and remote locking, Air con and MP3 / CD sound system.  It also gets a sexy little body kit consisting of a rear spoiler, side skirts and sports bumpers front and rear. it also gets sports seats to hug you, 16" Alloys, front fog lights and a glasses holder (to store those new Gucci sunglasses safely).  Overall for £12,805 OTR it's not only an absolute bargain and well worth the money, it's also definitely worth a test drive as this is now a serious player in the super-mini category.  Top Gayer Top Marks for Skoda.

Fabia Sport is available now priced from £10,670 OTR for the entry level 1.2 petrol to £12,805 OTR for the top spec 1.9 TDI PD Diesel.
