Ford Fiesta Hatchback 1.6 TDCi 95 Style ECOnetic S/S 5dr Review

For The Fiesta’s crisp, accurate steering and taut body control mean it’s an absolute joy to drive. The diesel engine is extremely economical.

Against The 1.6-litre diesel engine is clattery and loud when you rev it. Unfortunately, that’s something you have to do all too often due to the shortage of torque. This model is poorly equipped, too.

The poor engine refinement and flexibility would stop us buying this Fiesta.

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.
