SKODA Fabia Estate reviewNGC verdict 21.09.2011
The Fabia Estate Greenline is a typically well made Skoda and very practical in terms of passenger and luggage carrying abilities, even without using a ski box on the roof. No road tax is a money saver, but unless you go frequently into the London congestion zone and want to avoid paying, I feel most drivers would prefer a more enjoyable drive, probably use less fuel, and hold up other traffic less, by going for a larger engine version.
The 1.6 TDI has emissions of 109 g/km but because you don't have to work the engine so hard I reckon would achieve similar fuel consumption figures most of the time.
