Skoda Fabia buying guide

What Skoda Fabia trim levels are there?

In the pre-2021 Fabia, the S trim kicks off the range. But it’s not exactly bare-bones, with digital radio and Bluetooth allowing you to listen to what you like while you’re driving. There are also LED daytime running lights and lots of adjustability in the steering wheel and driver’s seat, making it easy to find your perfect driving position.

SE is a popular spec because you get a lot of modern must-haves. There’s air conditioning, a multifunction steering wheel, rear parking sensors and an alarm. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also fitted, you can use your phone through the car’s touchscreen for things like sat nav. SE Drive was introduced towards the end of the Fabia’s life as a special edition. SE L gets sat nav, cruise control and keyless start.

The Colour Edition stands out with its stylish contrast roof in black, white or silver. Monte Carlo is a limited-edition built to celebrate Skoda’s success on the legendary rally of the same name. It features sportier styling, a contrast black roof and climate control.

Trim levels for the new car are largely similar, but there are some additions. All cars now get bright LED headlights, while high-spec cars come with a digital instrument cluster.

Skoda Fabia interior and technology

The materials are hard-wearing and considered rather than luxurious. They’re absolutely fine for a car like this. Importantly, everything feels carefully constructed and durable. Refinement is excellent for such a small and inexpensive car, and long journeys are comfortable. It really does feel like a cheaper VW Polo.

Skoda Fabia engine range explained

(Most popular!) Skoda Fabia 1.0 TSI petrol

A keen 1.0-litre petrol engine is the ideal powertrain for the Fabia. Look for TSI versions if you’re going to be venturing out of town, as these are plenty powerful enough while still being capable of over 55mpg. This engine comes with either 95hp or 110hp, with the smaller-powered option being more common.

Skoda Fabia 1.0 MPI petrol

MPI versions of this engine come without a turbocharger and less power – either 60hp or 75hp. These offer super-cheap insurance (60hp cars sit in the lowest possible group), and feel nippy around town. Make sure you take a test drive if you’re planning to take the car on faster roads.

Skoda Fabia 1.5 TSI petrol

Selected versions of the latest Fabia can be had with a bigger and more powerful 1.5-litre petrol engine. It provides punchier acceleration without sacrificing fuel economy, and comes with an automatic gearbox for easy progress, but most buyers are satisfied with the 1.0-litre engines.

Your Skoda Fabia questions answered

Fabias produced from 2014-2021 are available in both hatchback and – unusually in this class – an estate too. The latest model is sold exclusively as a five-door hatchback.

The outgoing Skoda Fabia sneaks under four metres long, making it easy to get around tight city streets and into small spaces. But it also feels stable and confident on faster roads. Impressively, the Fabia has plenty of space for four adults, and five can squeeze in if they’re friendly with each other. The 330-litre boot in the hatchback is more generous than the Ford Fiesta or Toyota Yaris, and the estate offers an additional 200 litres.

The latest model has grown slightly, and it’s enough to question if you need a bigger hatchback like a VW Golf or Ford Focus. There’s more interior space and a mega 380-litre boot – exactly matching the Golf and Focus. Of course, as it’s a Skoda, the Fabia comes with some really useful features like an umbrella stashed away in the door.

Later examples of the previous-generation Fabia produced from 2018 offer several choices of 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine, the top two given a useful boost thanks to a turbocharger. The 2021-on Fabia adds another non-turbocharged version of the 1.0-litre engine to the mix.

Front-wheel drive and a manual gearbox is standard across the range, with the dual-clutch DSG gearbox optional on the top-spec engine.

The Skoda Fabia is a practical, sensible supermini that should be a delight to own. There's space for four people and a weekly shop, plus a decent amount of equipment – SE spec and above come with air conditioning, phone connectivity, DAB radio, cruise control and parking sensors – and economical petrol engines. All that comes with a price tag that's lower than many of its rivals, so it should be on your small car shortlist.

A Skoda Fabia should be a reliable purchase – most will have no problems, although a few unlucky owners might come across minor issues or software glitches. Entry-level non-turbocharged cars have very little to go wrong.
