The Skoda Fabia Estate is a great choice for young families. It’s roomy, good to drive and cheap to run.

Equipment

There are four main trim levels, which helps make Skoda Fabia Estate equipment levels reasonably easy to understand. They are S, SE, SE Plus and Elegance and they replace the simple 1, 2 and 3 trim levels used when the car was first introduced in 2008.

When Skoda revised the Fabia in 2010 and adopted the current trim names, it also gave the car a mild restyle with new headlights, grille and bumpers.

As well as the standard trim levels, there’s the standalone Greenline II model for the eco-conscious buyer, while performance fans are sated by the vRS that also has its own unique specification.

On top of this, the Fabia Scout is another separate trim level, though the only difference between the Scout models is which 1.6 TDI diesel engine you choose for it.

Standard equipment

The ground floor S trim comes with little in the way of fripperies and only offers central locking, electric front windows, CD stereo with MP3 connector, 60/40 split and fold rear seats, and twin front and side airbags.

The SE gains an alarm, alloy wheels and air conditioning to be much more civilised, while the SE Plus chips in with climate control and electric rear windows, a multi-function steering wheel and rear privacy glass.

Only the Elegance has curtain airbags and also provides cruise control and extra speakers for the stereo.

Go for the Greenline II model and you benefit from stop/start technology, ESP, alloy wheels, cruise control, air conditioning and front electric windows to have a more generous specification than most Fabia Estate models.

The sporty vRS has a similarly full list of equipment, while the Scout is also well kitted out and shares the standard ESP of the vRS.

Skoda Fabia Estate accessories

To add to the practicality of the Skoda Fabia Estate, buyers can choose a roof-mounted bicycle rack that sits on optional roof bars. There’s also a detachable tow bar, though you’ll also have to buy the electric kit separately.

Side rubbing strips and sill covers help protect the Fabia from scuffs and scrapes, while alloy wheels are an option for those models that don’t have them as standard.

Floor mats keep mud off the carpets, while a deeper front spoiler gives the front end a sportier appearance.
