The Skoda Fabia

Which? Magazine has ranked the Skoda Fabia in joint second place in the Supermini category of their 2004 car safety report. In the March issue of the magazine, cars were rated in two ways: the judges took into account existing Euro NCAP ratings and their own expert investigation of each car’s design.

Škoda Fabia scored very well in both areas, with its four stars in the Euro NCAP being the top rating in the Supermini category - and a score of 9.5 among the Which? experts – the second highest score among the 29 cars in its segment. Euro NCAP ratings show how cars react to precisely controlled crashes and compares those results among other cars in the same size. The experts’ investigation looked at such criteria as vehicle design and construction, airbags, leg impact areas, pedestrian protection, seatbelts, head protection, rear seat safety and head protection.

Since its introduction in 2000, the Fabia has been instrumental in rebuilding Škoda’s image as a manufacturer of fine motor cars. The Fabia has won a cabinet-full of awards, including the What Car? Car of the Year Award in 2000 and the Best Supermini for three years running; the Auto Express Car of the Year 2000 and Best Supermini 2001; Diesel Car’s Best Diesel Supermini 2001 and the Which? Safest Supermini in 2001 and the Scottish Diesel Car of the Year in 2003. For safety, economy and style, Fabia is the award-winning choice of savvy car buyers across Great Britain.
