Other than the smaller wheels, the Fabia is pretty much similarly specced as the Polo Sport. It comes with six airbags, factory fitted stereo, ESP and so on. In terms of safety though, the Fabia's four-star Euro NCAP rating is one less than the Polo's five-star result.

The Fabia is roughly ten percent more affordable than the Polo Sport. The latter might look better and has a somewhat more prestigious badge but for those who can't stretch their budgets for a Polo Sport or don't have the liberty to wait for months for the delivery of the German car, the Skoda Fabia makes for a compelling alternative indeed.
