Ford Fiesta Hatchback 1.0T 100 Ecoboost Zetec S/S 3dr Review

For The Fiesta’s crisp, accurate steering and taut body control mean it’s an absolute joy to drive. We love this 99bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine because it’s smooth and economical.

Against Many of the cabin plastics look and feel quite cheap. Although there’s plenty of space up front, rear legroom is on the tight side for adults.

5 out of 5 stars

The Fiesta is a sensational supermini. It’s well specified, competitively priced and this 99bhp three-cylinder model delivers plenty of performance. Zetec trim gives you air-con, remote locking and front electric windows and alloys.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Some rivals may be classier, and some better equipped, but none are more fun than the Fiesta thanks to its dynamic brilliance.

It’s competitively priced and is available with huge discounts. Whichever model you choose, make sure you shop around. Ford's website is a good place to start: here you can find all the latest company offers, such as free equipment and low-rate finance deals.

Conscious that the Fiesta will appeal to younger drivers and in order to give parents a little more peace of mind, Ford also offers a programmable ignition key. This key can be pre-set to control certain parameters, including limiting the top speed of the vehicle, muting the audio until the seat belts are fastened and preventing the ESP system from being disabled.
