Car Leasing Review - the Skoda Fabia

Car Leasing Review - the Skoda Fabia

The Skoda Fabia is a really well reviewed little car and would be a sound choice for anyone looking to lease a small family car.

Here's what the experts have had to say.

AutoExpress 

"The latest Skoda Fabia is a very accomplished car to drive. It benefits from a chassis that’s more highly developed than its siblings, the Volkswagen Polo and SEAT Ibiza, putting the extra size and sophistication of its MQB componentry to good use.

Precise steering and the lower kerbweight of the latest Fabia mean it handles more neatly than the previous version, proving light on its feet and nimble in town. While the 1.0 engines weigh in at under a tonne, the sweet spot of the range is actually the 1,034kg 1.2 TSI 90, but do be aware the 1.4 TDI diesel pushes kerbweight up to over 1,100kg, largely over the front axle: these versions thus have a little less finesse.

But sporty handling arguably isn’t as important as comfort in a supermini, and while the Fabia isn't quick, it more than compensates in terms of ride quality."

AutoCar

"However, long motorway journeys aren't really the main point of this version of the Fabia... Instead, it is much happier around town. It's a quiet and smooth engine that allows for easy nipping from junction to junction. Stick in the lower gears at town speeds and the Fabia's light but precise gearshift allows for unfussed urban progress." 

Top Gear

"The Fabia has a thoroughly pleasant cabin... You could quite comfortably while away hours and hours behind the wheel...Skoda’s taken everything the old Fabia did so well and modernised it. The commonsense supermini choice..."

Honest John 

"The Fabia feels like a big step forward versus the old model. It's more stylish, has a better cabin and feels grown-up and competent on the road. Yet, despite all of the improvements, it still represents excellent value for money thanks to reasonable prices, decent equipment levels and low running costs." 

Little Green Car Leasing Summary 

If you're looking to lease a brand new supermini, there's a good chance the Fabia has already crossed your mind. Critics are loving this car's comfortable and roomy interior, which means it's great for longer journeys and those quick pop-to-the-shop trips alike. 

Whilst the supermini genre is a busy market, qualities like the extra space in this car could well help to make this one stand out amongst its closest competitors. And with the precision steering and great handling also roundly praised by the car-journos, there's plenty to get excited about here!
