Fantastic 'big' small car. Reliable with great features as standard.
2018 Skoda Fabia Petrol Manual Hatchback by Matthew Holmes • 26th January 2021
Owned this car for 3 years from new. I picked this car as I wanted something small to run around in, mainly to work and back, but it was also the biggest car in that price range compared to the likes of a 106 or Ka. Fits 5 adults (4 comfortably), and has excellent boot space (even has a full size spare wheel which is uncommon in new cars!). When needed, it was great for the two young children with ISOFIX car seats and enough space for the pram in the boot. Fantastic car that caused me no problems at all. Very reliable and very low running costs. Mostly driving 40 miles into Belfast and back, average of 50MPG. Came with touch screen DAB radio with bluetooth as standard, but if I need to find a downside, the only one is for the two/three days a year of nice weather we get here, air con doesn't come as standard.
Indestructible tank of a car that runs forever with great MPG
2011 Skoda Octavia Diesel Manual Estate by Mrs Moppet • 23rd April 2019
Spacious, perfect motorway car. Very comfortable, reliable, averaged upper 50's/lower 60's MPG with a range of 600-700 miles on a tank, and just a pleasure to drive. Wouldn't have sold it, except that I needed to change to an automatic for reasons of disability.
