As one of the most-popular and loved cars on the road, the Ford Fiesta continues to go from strength-to-strength, showcasing an array of talents and improved style elements.
Slightly longer and wider than before, the Ford’s revamped dimensions give this family favourite a new shape even if it’s not instantly obvious. The style makeover also includes all-new horizontal tail lights and an improved tailgate which has created a more domineering stance. With 15-inch alloys as standard, and which get progressively bigger up the range, the Ford Fiesta knows how to stand out from the crowd and make the most of its supermini status.
The impressive aesthetics of the Ford Fiesta are continued through to the cabin which has a more modern, spacious and refined feel than previous models. Soft-touch fabrics add to the luxurious vibe of the interior while numerous buttons and switches have been replaced with a tablet-style touchscreen which sits neatly on the dashboard.
There’s a reason why the Ford Fiesta fends off competitors time-and-time again. Hop behind the wheel and you’ll discover an energetic ride that’s up for adventure. With light handling and superb acceleration, the Fiesta feels as comfortable nipping through rush hour traffic in the heart of the city as it does navigating country rides or gliding along the motorway.
The Fiesta is light with the heavier models weighing in at just 1,200kg. This means it can handle corners well and slip into the tightest parking spaces with ease.
With regards to engines, there are both petrol and diesel options available, with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost being particularly popular thanks to its punchy and fun performance. The 1.5-litre TDCi is also a great choice.
Technology and comfort combine to ensure you can sit back and relax in style. With air conditioning available as standard even on entry-level models, you won’t have to worry about the mercury rising on those hot days. Zetec models also boast a heated windscreen which clears quickly on cold mornings as well as a DAB radio and a 6.5-inch touchscreen display. Opt for the Titanium model and the touchscreen becomes eight-inches and includes a sat-nav system.
As safety is a top priority for the Ford marque, the Fiesta has always tested well, with older models receiving the maximum five-star NCAP award. The newer models feature a wide range of tech-enhanced security features including Cross Traffic Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control, with Autonomous Braking as well.
