Practical super mini
Added: 11th of October 2016
4 star performance..the automatic Fabia has the lower powered of the two 1400cc twin cams so is never going to win the "traffic light grand prix" but is perfectly fine if you are not a boy racer. 5 star running costs...41+mpg throughout ownership 3 years and counting (probably do better in a manual). Service parts are cheap. 4 star comfort...acceptable seats and adjustments,all bits and pieces in easy reach (mine has heated seats being "Elegance " spec) Nice ride and handling. Ice cold aircon. 5 star reliability...not let me down yet. ( I speak of a low mileage example..its 12 years old with only 47000 miles) 4 star space & practicality...5 seats,split rear fold down for extra luggage space. perfectly adequate for the trips to the garden centre ,or diy shed.Loads of "cubbyholes " for odds and sods.
