Skoda Fabia Estate (2015-2017) interior
What Skoda has done with the Fabia estate is really quite clever, as it delivers more space than just about anything else of its size.
If there is one criticism of the Fabia estate’s interior, it’s that there are quite a lot of cheap-feeling, hard plastics that belie the fact that it’s a Volkswagen Group car. In fact, the shortfall in quality plastics compared to the VW Polo feels more like a deliberate attempt to distance the Fabia from its pricy cousin. Despite the materials though, it is well put together and clearly laid out.
It feels like every part of the Fabia has been designed to make your life easier
If you’re into your tech then we would advise skipping the Fabia S – which only has a basic stereo and USB plug – and going for SE trim, which is the available with the Bolero infotainment system. It has a 6.5-inch display with Smartlink that means it can mirror the display of Android and Apple smartphones, and is compatible with apps for music and sat-nav.
