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...

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...

2013 Skoda Fabia Rs 132 TSI Review

The SKODA Fabia RS is a super mini hot hatch launched in Australia in 2011-2012. One of the most common comments we got after buying our first one (we love it so much we now have two) was that "it looks just like a Suzuki Swift", It might, but only because it is a five door hatch. That is where the similarity ends...
