More new cars are sold in the UK than ever before, so it takes a truly special car to be the country’s best-seller – and that’s exactly what the Ford Fiesta is. Hugely fun to drive, good-looking and impressively refined, it’s impossible to beat as an all-rounder.
The handsome Fiesta has Ford’s familiar grille on its nose and comes with three or five doors, perfect whether you crave sporty styling or practicality for the whole family. It comes in a range of 12 colours to match your personality, and stylish alloy wheels (standard on the Zetec and above trims) amp up the bling factor.
Unlike some superminis, the Fiesta still boasts a compact footprint, perfect for threading through gaps in city traffic and squeezing into pokey parking spaces.
Those compact dimensions don’t come at the expense of interior space, with lots of room for passengers in the front and back. It behaves like a big car on the road too, being impressively quiet and enjoyable to spend extended periods in.
The rear seats split and fold 60/40 so you can balance passengers with boot space when you need to carry larger or awkwardly-shaped items. But most of the time the 290-litre boot will carry everything you need, including a week’s shopping.
From the entry-level 1.25-litre petrol engine with 59bhp to the 138bhp to the 1.0-litre EcoBoost, you’ll find it easy to find a Fiesta that suits your budget and driving style. Ford offers a model for every driver, with a huge range of engines to match – nine, to be exact.
A Powershift six-speed automatic gearbox is offered on several engines for better fuel-efficiency. The range of three diesel engines includes the ultra-frugal ECOnetic version that emits just 82g/km of CO2 and can achieve up to 88.3mpg.
Whichever you choose, you’ll enjoy the taut handling characteristics and supple ride quality that motoring journalists laud the Fiesta for. It’s a brilliant blend of fun when you want it to be and relaxed when you need it to be.
A huge range of sophisticated technologies are offered across the Fiesta range. Air conditioning, the SYNC Bluetooth system, a rear-view camera, heated seats and a keyless entry system are among the things available at different points in the trim range.
Rear privacy glass, climate control, cruise control and automatic headlights come as standard on Titanium and Titanium X models, while all Fiestas include stability control and seven airbags. The comprehensive safety system on board means it boasts a maximum five-star rating from Euro NCAP.
