All cars get LED daytime running lights, Front Assist and a multifunction trip computer, while SE models (from £14,845) add front fog lights, 15-inch alloy wheels and an upgraded stereo. Colour Edition cars (from £14,665) boasts bigger 16-inch wheels in white, silver or black.

Step up to the Fabia SE L (£15,205) and you get sat-nav, a year's subscription to Skoda's online infotainment package, and extra interior lighting. Monte Carlo (from £16,785) cars add a touch of sport-inspired style, with a black front spoiler, black roof, black floor mats and carbon-effect dashboard trim. You also benefit from climate control, LED rear lights and rear electric windows.

The Estate model commands a premium of between £800 and £1,200 depending on spec and engine. The Colour Edition is only available as a five-door hatch.

Previously, Skoda’s supermini was available with a 1.4-litre TDI unit in three states of tune, ranging from 74bhp to 104bhp. Now the line-up will consist solely of 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol cars. A naturally aspirated MPI engine comes with 74bhp, while a newer, turbocharged TSI is also offered with two power outputs – 94bhp or 108bhp.

The most powerful engine in the line-up is the only one available with an automatic gearbox, being a typical Volkswagen Group seven-speed DSG. Skoda claims that the engines are now a smidgen more economical than before too, while both TSI units are fitted with a particulate filter.
