The Roomster is a Skoda Fabia hatchback a much bigger and taller The Fabia is a fine all-round car and the aims to improve on that greater practicality, while the model tested here has a stance, metal under-trays and cladding for the bumpers and wheelarches, make it suitable for some mild off-roading. It also the addition of a 1.2-litre TSI petrol to the line-up, aiming to offer a blend of performance and economy.

What are its rivals?

The Peugeot the Citroen Berlingo and the Renault are the Skoda#39;s biggest competitors. all based on vans, but have converted into cars to a super practical tool in manufacturer#39;s range. None of are particularly …, but they#39;re all sensible.

How does it drive?

TSI engines are a common sight the bonnets of cars from the Group at the moment. They a turbocharger and a supercharger, which for punchy but smooth acceleration, no loss of power at very low like you get with a turbo Smaller TSI engines often more power and superior economy than larger, engines too, so they#39;re a look for that reason.

Impressive though the TSI engines may be, the version seems a little out of in the Roomster. That big rear end that there#39;s quite a lot of to haul around, so the engine slightly strangled. The seven-speed DSG gearbox can#39;t quite what gear it wants

We can#39;t help but think the 1.6-litre TDI Roomster with the gearbox simply does the job

What#39;s impressive?

With a price of £13,890 for the 1.2 TSI Scout 85bhp, the Roomster looks good value. Skoda has a strong reputation for good service and aftermarket care, is another big draw.

It may be a petrol engine, but the 1.2-litre is highly economical and can put many diesels to shame. According to you#39;ll see 49.6mpg on average and are only 134g/km, so you#39;re at £110 for the annual tax disc.

The is pretty big, too. 450 litres with the rear in place – fold down and you#39;re looking at litres in total, which is

What#39;s not?

We#39;ve mentioned the slightly lacklustre and it#39;s a given that TDI diesel engines suit the car better. Don#39;t be fooled by the look either: the Scout ride higher than the Roomster and feature some cladding, but it#39;s no off-roader.

I buy one?

We wouldn#39;t steer you from the Roomster – well built, affordable and – but our engine choice be the 1.6 TDI unit. As good as the 1.2-litre TSI is, we#39;d be swayed by the easy-going of the diesel, which suits the much better. Also, if you need the space of the Roomster, a Fabia hatchback is better and even more of a bargain.
