Description: Skoda’s taken everything the old fabia did so well and modernised it. The commonsense supermini choice

After the Octavia, the Skoda Fabia is the Czech – but wholly VW-owned – brand’s second-best selling model in the UK. This is its third iteration and, like pretty much everything else released by VW Group in the last year, uses elements of the versatile MQB platform. This is Very Good News. It means that though the new Fabia is physically smaller than its predecessor, it’s bigger inside, lighter and, says Skoda, up to 17 per cent more efficient thanks to a new generation of three- and four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines.

Like driving? Head for a Ford Fiesta or Mazda 2 – the Fabia is geared more for tractability and ease of use than outright fun. The ride is smooth, the body well-controlled and the steering light enough to make scything through town and low-speed manoeuvring  as easy as. But the chassis simply isn’t as engaging as a Fiesta’s. It’s good, but not that good.

Where the Fabia shines is at the pumps. The most economical 1.4-litre, 89bhp diesel should, says Skoda, manage something north of 83mpg. And there’s an even more economical engine on the way, which should up that figure to 88mpg. It’s the 1.2-litre petrols (ignore the 1.0-litre because it’s simply not powerful enough) that are the pick of the range, though. They’re smoother, not massively less economical and suit the car much better.
