This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Skoda Fabia vRS (10-14) review.

Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

Four stars in the Euro NCAP safety test. Driver and passenger airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners, ABS, MSR and ASR, switchable ESP are all standard. The fuel supply cuts out in a crash, too. Security is taken care of thanks to an alarm/immobiliser, remote central locking and deadlocks.

Reasonable boot space for a supermini - you'll get a couple of cases in without having to resort to using the back seats. The rear seats are split folding for extra flexibility. Cubbies in the cabin include a large air conditioned glove box, doorbins, a box under the stereo and a cubby under the steering wheel, which is ideal for hiding a mobile phone, or loose change.
