It's looking like a Škoda Fabia Combi with a 70 hp diesel (for environmental considerations and fuel costs). It's huge for a supermini/subcompact, as big as the same company's Octavia used to be and almost as long as the '92 Subaru Legacy wagon back in the States.
Because it would be on an operating lease, I was thinking of a bare-bones "Classic", but the salesman convinced us with typical Estonian passive sales technique -- and in fact arguing against many of the features -- that the "Ambiente" would be better.
So basically a kind of Volkswagen. The only question is whether the 70 hp, which is also not quite as efficient as the 80 hp version, will get us up a hill in Slovakia, in case the world does not collapse and we take a family road trip to the Continent one of these summers.
