The ŠKODA Fabia is a small car that offers you the space and versatility required for everyday life. With space for 5 people and still with enough room in the back for your luggage, it's the ideal small family car. Regardless of whether it's the weekly shop, the annual holiday, or a trip to the garden centre, the Fabia's boot won't be lacking the space you need. It offers 315 litres of space with the seats up and an impressive 1,180 litres of space with the seats down. The Fabia is as happy doing 30mph through town on the school run as it is doing 70mph on the motorway and of course, at its core is the traditional ŠKODA offer of value for money and that legendary extra bit of car.
What Car? editor Jim Holder said: 'The Fabia wins not only because it's a superb small car that's practical, well equipped and cheap to run, but also because of the rivals it has managed to dispose of in the process.'
'When you consider the strength of the competition the new Fabia has had to beat to top its class, it simply has to win.'
Director of ŠKODA UK, Alasdair Stewart, said: 'We are delighted to have been given these accolades by What Car?. UK customers trust What Car? when they are buying a new car, and winning the Car of the Year award is the perfect introduction for the new Fabia on the UK market.'
The Fabia dashboard was designed with the driver in mind. All controls are at the driver's disposal in such places where his/her hands can intuitively reach them. The steering wheel is height and reach adjustable. There is also the option to add a 3 or 4-spoke multifunctional leather steering wheel with built in controls for radio and phone.
ŠKODA Fabia - Driving position As we spend more and more time in our cars, being comfortable is essential. With this in mind, the Fabia has been designed with a high driving position, allowing greater visibility of the road ahead, more headroom, and easy access. From entry level the Fabia comes with a height adjustable driver's seat and a height and reach adjustable steering wheel so you will find getting a comfortable and safe driving position easy.
Clean and efficient petrol and diesel engines offer the driver a suitable engine for every situation. It's safe too, with up to six different airbags. Technology includes an optional Amundsen satellite navigation system allowing you to find your destination quickly and easily and add Bluetooth fitted for comfortable and safe phone use while driving. CO2 emissions for the Fabia range are 110 - 88g/km. The Fabia range is just as happy on the school run as on the motorway.
