Anyone had any experience of them? Looking at the Stats the manual petrol looks to be a good option for me; always liked the old shape and they have some good deals on at the moment so going to take a look. Quite liking the Rallye Green as a bit different

Bit of a midlife crisis car in that colour. Blue or black is a better option imo.

Interior is a step up from the last model. Feels/looks closer to Audi rather than VW.

Not driven but looks a nice package.

I'd also recommend DSG all day long.

No experience with the new model but the one before this I had one for abit, TDI CR engine, I liked it, plenty of room, responsive & power felt good.

I fancy an estate in one of the grey variants.

Another one here for DSG. Had my Fabia VRS just over a year now and I'm still loving the DSG box.

I had a look around one recently and would say the opposite myself... Felt it seemed a bit cheap in comparison to what I recall of my Mk2.

Wheels are horrid but the colour and rest of the car looks nice.

The colour might be different just now, but every1 else will have the same attitude and go for it, making it not so different a few months down the line.

I really like the shape and interior of the older one. 2011/2012 ages.

Saying that, once I start seeing the new one around my opinion will change!

I prefer the estate to the hatch.

Green is rare, it was available on the previous model but not many around, think i've seen one on the road.

Thats whats making me interested; a lot cheaper than the beemer per month!

I do like the estate but my wife doesnt like driving mine due to the size; so thinking the hatch maybe better and still has a massive load space.

Didnt get chance to go in at the weekend but might try one day this week

Meant to be very good vehicles! I honestly really like the estate. Wouldn't trade a BMW for one though...

All the dealers seem to only have estates in. I'm going to try and blag a demo for a day when mine goes in for service.

IIRC Hatchbacks are delayed until end of Nov early Dec (ish).

That looks like a good deal, is that for the estate or is the picture just an estate?

Estate John, the prices seems to have changed last night. Thats a much better deal for the Estate than has been all week.

I have enquired, been ok the Skoda site and the wheels I liked have disappeared and I could have sworn the basic sat nav was free on Monday.
