Practical and Roomy
The Fabia is a great family choice. For one thing, its five-door body ensures that access is easy for all passengers. There’s room inside for five, and the driver is provided with a height-adjustable seat and tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, which make it simple to establish an ideal driving position. Each compartment offers plenty of passenger space too, even for rear-row travellers. It’s certainly easy to accommodate five adults inside the Fabia – and a young family will find the car to be incredibly spacious. The car’s class-competitive 330-litre boot is easy to access, thanks to a wide-opening tailgate and low load sill. Whenever you need more luggage capacity, simply flip the Fabia’s 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and you’ll have 1,150 litres of load space at your disposal.
Useful Tech on Board
A five-inch touchscreen is included as standard, which makes it easy to operate the Fabia’s four-speaker sound system. Included is DAB radio, which provides a wide range of stations in crystal-clear audio quality. There are plenty of connective inputs too, such as AUX, USB and SD. Bluetooth® is also included, allowing you to stream music from your smartphone, and safely make and receive telephone calls. SE grades add two more speakers, while the car’s touchscreen increases in size by 1.5 inches. SE trims and higher also make it possible to control a range of infotainment features via the Fabia’s multifunction steering wheel.
As all good family cars should, the Fabia comes with Euro NCAP’s highest five-star crash test rating. This means that the vehicle features all the driver aids and passive safety features you would expect – and more. For example, Electronic Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking System are present and correct, ensuring that the car resists skidding in almost every scenario. Tyre Pressure Monitoring System features too, constantly analysing the air pressure of each tyre, and alerting the driver of any significant deviation. Travellers of all ages are protected by, among other things, multiple airbags – and ISOFIX child-seat fittings in the rear compartment. All occupants are encouraged to buckle up too, thanks to the inclusion of seatbelt warning lights.
