Value for Money
I have been researching hatchbacks for over a month now and have test driven all of them. Its the Fabia which I would be going for, next week, for sure - the 1.2 MPI.
In the 5L+ range, it is not the most powerful (like Getz CRDi) or not the most fuel efficient (Swift D) neither the most spaceious (Indica Vista), but it offers a complete and well built package. With interiors and exteriors which can put many higher segment cars to shame. You just need to try one of these *Fab* beauties to experience the difference that quality brings in.
Great control at high speeds, excellent handling, butter smooth gear shift, decent low end torque for city drives. To top it off, the feeling of safety you get once inside is class apart.
Only if the spares could be cheaper and A.S.S. network more reliable/better, it would outshine most hatchbacks/sedans in the market.Great Style & Space, Robust Build, Safety Features, Fab Interiors, Decent Performance, Feels GoodCostly Spares & After Sales Options
