The top award came 15 years after Volkswagen-owned Skoda first won the main prize.
What Car? editor Jim Holder said: “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.
“We’ve driven and evaluated all of its rivals and, whichever way you cut it, the Fabia is the most rounded small car on sale in the UK today.”
