Most cars in this class struggled with a full load of holiday luggage, but not the Fabia. With the seats in place we managed to squeeze in everything except the large grip back. There are 480 litres even before you start folding seats, which increases the space to 1460 litres.

If the towing mirrors had been easier to fit and the spare wheel more accessible, the practicality score would have been higher. The measly 50kg noseweight limit was frustrating.
