Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

The Fabia scores four stars on the EuroNcap for adult protection. That’s not bad, but rivals including the Renault Clio, Ford Fiesta, Citroen DS3 and the Vauxhall Corsa all score a maximum five stars on the rating system. The vRS comes equipped with front, side and curtain airbags for driver and front seat passenger. It also comes with electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, hill hold control and tyre pressure monitor that warns if a tyre loses pressure.

You can get five adults in the rear but make the journeys short for the person in the middle as this seat is quite cramped. There is 300 litres of space in the boot of the Fabia with the seats upright and when folded this expands to 1,163 – giving the model more luggage room than the vast majority of its rivals. Obviously, the estate version offers even more practicality with a boot space of 480 litres growing to 1,460 with the seats down.
