  • Skoda Fabia (2007 - 2015)
    Decently built and good value. Cheap to run. Greenline models are very economical with low CO2 emissions.
  • Skoda Fabia vRS (2010 - 2013)
    Great performance from buzzy 1.4 TSI engine. Very precise in corners. Firm but forgiving ride. Nicely weighted steering. Impressively economical.
