What Car? Awards: the winners - Introduction
The all-new Ford Fiesta has taken top honours at the 32nd annual motoring 'Oscars': the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2009.
Ford scooped four awards during the glittering ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London's Park Lane.
What Car? editor Steve Fowler said: 'The Fiesta is the right car at the right time – small in size, but big on ability.
'We love the way it looks and the way it drives, but it also stacks up as a shrewd buy, offering space and quality, while being affordable to buy and run.'
The Fiesta was also named best supermini, while Ford's Mondeo won two awards, for best family car and best estate car.
John Fleming, chairman and CEO, Ford of Europe, said: 'This is tremendous news for the whole Ford team – the great British public has already made the new Fiesta the UK's best-selling car in the closing months of last year, and this ultimate endorsement by What Car? will drive the new Fiesta to even greater success this year.'
