Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Skoda Fabia safety is let down by a four star Euro NCAP rating which is a little disappointing - especially when similar cars are gaining a maximum score of five stars. However the Fabia does come with dual front and side airbags as standard as well as ABS and electronic brakeforce distribution while the Fabia 3 adds curtain airbags.

The Fabia has a bigger boot than most small hatchbacks, plus it comes with folding seats for extra space. There’s a divider to stop smaller items rolling around – useful if you’ve got just one bag of shopping in the back. It’s an easy boot to load too and quite close to the ground while in the front there’s a double air conditioned glove box which is designed for keeping drinks cold.

The downside is that it sounds more useful than it actually is - it’s small and not deep enough to be really useful but at least there are two cupholders and bulges in the side pockets large enough for drinks bottles.
