Emissions summary

Fabia performs very well on the eco front. With an average of 148 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are comparably low for a super mini hatchback. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.4-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is impressively frugal, averaging 49 mpg.
