The second-generation Skoda Fabia takes the formula of the original model from 2000 and updates it with sleeker looks and even more practicality. As with all Skoda models, the Fabia is well made and good value, while it’s also very comfortable and ideal for town driving.

Equipment

When it was introduced, the second generation model had a simple trim line-up of 1, 2 and 3 so Skoda Fabia equipment levels vary. A Sport model was introduced late in 2008 with a 15mm lowered ride height and offered with a choice of between two petrol and two diesel engines. Also sitting on lowered suspension was the Fabia BlueLine special edition, of which only 500 were produced. Based on the Fabia 2, the BlueLine came with climate control, Magic upholstery and 15-inch alloy wheels. In 2010, Skoda revised the Fabia with a new nose and headlights, and it also changed the trim lines to S, SE and Elegance in line with the Octavia range.

A year later, the SE Plus joined the line-up, while the Monte Carlo celebrated the 100th anniversary of the famous rally. The Monte Carlo is now an established regular in the Fabia range to offer something sporty but now as pricey as the vRS model, and in 2013 was joined by the Monte Carlo Tech special edition (1,000 units) which added sat-nav and Bluetooth to the kit list.

Standard equipment

The S trim for the Skoda Fabia is a no frills spec where most items are either unavailable or optional. What you do get is central locking, electric front windows MP3 connection and CD stereo, split and fold rear seat, and four airbags.

The SE then adds an alarm, air conditioning and alloy wheels, while the SE Plus offers different seat fabric, rear privacy glass, climate control, a multi-function steering wheel, electric rear windows and Skoda’s Media Device Interface to connect to MP3 players and ipods. For the Elegance, Skoda includes cruise control, curtain airbags and ESP, 16-inch alloy wheels and four extra speakers for the stereo.

The Monte Carlo comes with a black-painted roof and door mirrors, smoked headlight lenses and 17-inch alloy wheels, while inside it has front sports seats, perforated leather steering wheel and polished steel foot pedals.

Other than the Elegance, the Greenline II version of the Fabia is the only one to have ESP as standard and this eco model also has alloy wheels, air conditioning and cruise control to have a similar spec to the Elegance.

Skoda Fabia accessories

There’s a wide range of extras for the Skoda Fabia and among the more popular choices are ESP and an alarm, alloy wheels and metallic paint to brighten up the car.

Part-leather seats can be ordered for every Fabia model except the base S, while rear an electric sunroof is an option on all but the S and Greenline II. Other options include a bicycle roof carrier, side rubbing strips and roof bars.
