The all-new Skoda Fabia is available to buy now and a must-view addition to any supermini-buyer’s shortlist. Join us for a look around the new What Car? Car of the Year 2015.

Showcasing all the traits that draw buyers to the brand, Skoda’s all-new Fabia offers superb build quality, impressive practicality and great-value pricing wrapped in a stylish package.

Skoda fans will also be pleased to see the 2015 Fabia is instantly recognisable as the car they know and love, but that it also brings a new and more purposeful stance with its lower and wider countenance adding a some sporty attitude.

DESIGN: While the Fabia isn’t a radical departure from the existing design – if it’s not broke and all that – it does offer an insight into the design genius of a brand that’s rapidly becoming one of the most innovative around. Fabia fans will need to look no further than the car maker’s Vision C concept car revealed at the 2014 Geneva motor show to see just where influence in design changes originate from. See the two cars below.

The new Fabia will be offered with a range of new powerplants that will be up to 17% more efficient for economy compared with the outgoing model.

The entry-level units are versions of the 1.0-litre petrol engine and will be available in 59bhp and 74bhp states of tune. It will come with five-speed transmission.

A 1.2 turbocharged four-cylinder version will also be offered, with either 89- or 109bhp. The more powerful unit will get either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch auto ’box. The least efficient petrols will still emit no more than 110g/km of CO2.

Diesel options will be based around the new 1.4-litre unit that’s just been added to the VW Polo range. This will be offered in 89bhp of 103bhp form. The lesser-powered engine will also be offered with the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Supermini buyers will also be interested to hear the new Fabia gets a boost in safety kit. The new model adds automatic emergency braking – which stops the car if the sensors detect an impending collision – along with a rear-view camera and hill-hold assist.

Opening the car up to a new range of customers, the new Fabia updates its look with a more purposeful stance.

Low-set fog lights in the bumper accentuate the car’s sporty intentions, while the sharp waistline stretching from headlamps to tail-lights visually extend the car’s length and presence.

The new model is 9cm wider than the model it replaces, and 3cm lower.

MirrorLink is a stand-out piece of tech that’s worth mentioning. It mimics the display of your smartphone on the Fabia’s display screen. This allows drivers to connect their phones with the car’s entertainment system.

Comfort for occupants is high on the list of Skoda’s priorities, and with the new car bringing a slightly longer wheelbase than the previous car, six footers can happily (and simultaneously) inhabit both the front and back seats.

Parents with toddlers will also appreciate the wide-opening rear doors for easy access to baby seats.

Bootspace is not something usually associated with superminis, but the Fabia brings a generous 330 litres expanding to 1,150 with the seats folded down.

All variants claim economy of more than 50mpg, with the most popular 1.0 and 1.2 models hitting 51- and 54mpg respectively. The Fabia Greenline claims an amazing 91mpg and CO2 emissions of just 82g/km – only hybrids can beat that.
