The car’s front is both sleek and sturdy. Its distinctively sharp geometric lines give the bonnet a gentle sloping effect, providing a striking contrast with the car’s wide crystalline headlights. Side indicators are stylishly housed in the side rear-view mirrors, while the car’s rear lines have an inward slant to add optical width to the body. An optional panoramic glass roof, which extends from the windscreen to roof spoiler adds space and light, while a choice of 15 bold body colours allow you to personalise your drive.
Horizontal lines and high-grade materials in the interior ensure that the cabin feels both spacious and refined. A three-spoke leather steering wheel comes with controls for the multifunction display (standard on Ambition and Fabia Scout) and with radio and telephone functions on the Style model. The Fabia boasts an attractive fascia, with raised central air inlets and striking contouring, and offers an array of colour combinations for its seats, door panelling and centre console. The entry-level trim Active, comes with a height adjustable driver’s seat, while the Style provides air conditioning, rear electric windows and Easy Start ignition as standard features.
The Fabia comes with five engine options: four petrol and one diesel. The 1.0-litre 60bhp and 75bhp petrol engines are pleasingly nifty, while the most capable petrol version is the turbocharged 1.2 litre available with 90 and 110bhp. It generates torque of 160Nm and 175Nm respectively. The 1.4-litre TSI diesel produces an impressive 230Nm of torque, emits only 100g/km of CO2 and returns an average 78.5mpg.
The Fabia’s standard safety equipment includes front seat and curtain airbags, Anti-Lock Braking system and Electronic Stability Control with Multicollision Brake. Euro NCAP awarded the Fabia an impressive five-star safety score.
