" Models Based on the Polo Platform..."

The pedantic in me, suggests I should highlight the fact that the Fabia came before the Polo? :D

Attention to detail is better on the higher spec cars but that is reflected in the price

For example you now have the Audi A1, Polo GTI, Ibiza Cupra & Fabia vRS which are all essentially the same car

Difficult to say which one is better than another because they have the same running gear & chassis.
What's different about the Audi & Volskwagen is the interiors are nicer, including the plastics, fitment and the general attention to detail is of higher quality.

Doesn't mean its a better car though just means its aimed at people with more money to spend 8)

I believe the MK1 Fabia is based on the 9N/9N3 Polo Chassis so its other rivals would be the MK4 Ibiza and Audi A3/S3 (8L).
vRS is a great car and certainly offers the best value for money than any of the VAG cars of that chassis/era.

If you compare the MK1 vRS to the 9N Polo GT for example I would much rather have the Fabia because it's better looking, has nicer seats and is cheaper :)
