From the Ford Fiesta to the Renault Clio, Opel/Vauxhall Corsa and Suzuki Swift, the market is saturated with superminis. The Volkswagen Group holds its ground against the opposition with three models: the VW Polo, Seat Ibiza and Skoda Fabia.
These three share the same platform, technologies, engines and transmissions. Thus, they’re almost identical to each other beneath the skin, but despite this, the Polo commands a higher price tag than its Spanish and Czech siblings.
This brings us to a review shared by Australia’s CarsGuide, which explains, in five easy steps, why the Fabia could be the best of them all – and cost does play a major role in this.
