Skoda Fabia crowned Car of the Year

What Car?'s Car of the Year title has been awarded to the new Skoda Fabia, which beat 25 other models to the crown.

The Fabia was praised by the judges for its turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine, which is both powerful and fuel efficient. It offers more space and is more practical than two of its main rivals in the small car class, the Ford Fiesta and VW Polo, which enabled the Fabia to grab the top spot in that category too, reports telegraph.co.uk.

Skoda has not had the honour of winning the Car of the Year award for 15 years, but this year the Czech Republic-based manufacturer has outdone itself. The Octavia also picked up the Family Car of the Year award, adding to Skoda's accolades.

Other winners included Hyundai's new i10 1.2 Premium, which scooped What Car?'s Best City Car prize, whereas the Audi A3 e-tron walked away with the title of Best Electric Car, reports rac.co.uk. The Mercedes-Benz S350, on the other hand, was honoured with the title of Best Luxury Car.

Jim Holder, What Car? editor, said the Fabia is the "most rounded small car" a driver can hope to find in the UK market today.

"The Fabia is a fully deserved winner of our most sought-after award - not just because of the fact it is a well-equipped and practical small car, but also because of the big name rivals it has disposed of in the process," he noted.
