2019 Skoda Fabia 81TSI Monte Carlo review

The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is an exercise in sporty design with sprightly performance. It's an unorthodox, affordable tier-two European option well worth considering.

Mazda CX-3 v Skoda Fabia Wagon Comparison Review

Read the article here. It may have only gone on sale at the start of this year, but the Mazda CX-3 has already become one of the default choices for people in market for a city-sized SUV. And there’s little wonder. It’s got the looks, it’s the perfect size, the price and right, and Mazda’s engineers seem to have the Midas touch...

2019 Kia Rio GT-Line v Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo comparison

They both have three-cylinder engines, and they're both sportier than the wider range. There are plenty of similarities between the Fabia and Rio – how do they stack up side-by-side?

Mazda 2 Genki v Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo comparison

Light car sales may be down an alarming 16 per cent this year, but they’re still big business. Here we pitch two of the better contenders against each other, one a new kid on the block and the other a well-established leader of the pack. They are the newly launched Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo — a niche player known by relatively few — and the well-loved Mazda 2 Genki, consistently one of the top sellers in this class...

Mazda CX-3 v Skoda Fabia wagon : Comparison Review

Many of us at CarAdvice believe the Mazda CX-3 is the pick of the city-sized SUV bunch, and sales in its first six months on the market show it's a favourite among many new car shoppers too. It’s no secret the popularity of urban crossovers has exploded in Australia in recent times, with the likes of the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and Nissan Qashqai becoming the default choice for buyers looking for a little more size for only a little bit of money...

Know your Skoda: The model range explained

As the Czech challenger brand under the massive Volkswagen Group umbrella, Skoda has been making strides in recent years to compete with the car industry’s top players. But with less brand recognition than its peers, plus a lot of difficult-to-spell model names (many of them starting with a ‘K’), it’s understandable the Skoda range could feel a little confusing for first-time shoppers...

Skoda introduces used-car capped-price servicing

Skoda Australia has announced capped-price servicing packages available to owners of its used cars. The packages – which cover all items in the routine service schedule – are available for used Skoda cars that are more than 12 months old or have travelled more than 15,000km, providing they have had their first scheduled service...

Underrated cars that deserve greater success

There are hundreds of cars out there to choose from, so it’s hardly a shock that many laudable ones don’t sell nearly as well as they deserve to. Based on 2019’s industry sales figures, here are some of the standouts. They may not necessarily be the very best in class, but they do deserve more sales...

Skoda recalls MY18 models over airbag fix

Skoda Australia has issued a recall for 27 vehicles across the 2018 model-year Fabia, Karoq, Kodiaq, Octavia, Rapid and Superb lines due to an airbag fault that may see the driver’s unit not inflate properly in the event of a collision. “In some instances, the front driver air bag may not inflate to its fullest capacity fast enough when required,” the company says in the recall notice...

2017 Skoda Fabia 66TSI review

Our manual cars, a green 2012 Mazda 2 Neo and red 2016 Toyota 86 GTS, were written off last year due to an extreme weather event. The Kia Carnival was the sole survivor. I spent some weeks browsing the used car market with no specific replacement car in mind. It just needed to be a manual so that our kids could learn in it to get manual licence...

2017 Skoda Fabia 81TSI Review

My 2017 Skoda Fabia is an absolute blast to drive. It has some great features, but can leave you with a feeling of wanting more. Let's start with my spec of the 2017 Fabia: it is top-spec, but without the sunroof. Key features are climate control, radar-guided adaptive cruise control, sporty flat-bottom steering wheel and 17-inch alloys...

2013 Skoda Fabia RS 132TSI review

Having lived in big cities all my adult life, I didn’t buy my first car until the age of 33. Living in Sydney with no off-street parking, I wanted something small, but practical and with enough automotive integrity to meet the long repressed motoring enthusiast in me...

2016 Skoda Fabia 66TSI review

While the majority of others in the comments section of reviews seem to dislike this little champion, I have to say I couldn't disagree more. Looks, I suppose, are in the eye of the beholder, but I find the Fabia modern looking and sleek, although perhaps a bit narrow from the front view, but I can live with that. The practicality of the car never gets old...
