Pricewatch: Skoda Fabia v Vauxhall Corsa

The new Fabia mixes competitive pricing, decent specification, inexpensive running costs and likely reliability in a considerably more stylish package than the previous model.

It is also likely to sell in very low volumes compared to the likes of the Corsa and Fiesta, with perhaps only 4,000 Fabias finding their way into fleets in a full year. Combine this with Skoda’s reputation for economical motoring and the merits of the overall product and you can see why it has been predicted very strong residual values after three years/60,000 miles.
