    My car

    The Ecoboost engine carries a premium over the Zetec and financially the Zetec is probably better for your pocket. However, I love the engine responsiveness and noise. A sort of satisfying low rumble and then the turbo whine when you put your foot down. It wants you to drive a little bit faster, which of course is bad for mpg amongst other things. The handling is top notch in this class and sticks to the road with little body roll too. Its solid, well-built and so far reliable. I have managed an average 37pmg with average speed of 20mph - currently that's a very short commute around town. Probably a good return considering the driving I'm doing at the moment.

    Only negatives are that at this level of trim, Titanium, the things missing are rear electric windows and front and rear parking sensors. These are optional extras - really should be standard these days. The final negative is the stereo layout. Too many buttons, confusing, a UX design disaster. That said, listening to the engine noise is more fun.

    Overall, its a great looking car, Ecoboost engine lovely, handling even better.

    My car

    This is my third Ford and to date it is the best yet.

    Fuel economy: Fabulous MPG, nowhere near the quoted average but 53MPG is still excellent. Handling: Superb feel for a small car, crisp and assured. You feel connected to the road, all four wheels right in the corner of the car making twisty windy roads great fun. Engine: The 1.0l eco-boost engine is superb and when you put the foot down you get a satisfying throaty rumble from the 3 cylinder engine. Turbo ensures that you pick up speed quickly and this is more than capable at motorway speeds. Inside: Cabin on the Zetec is a pleasant place to be. Quality feeling materials used throughout, plastic but not a feeling of being cheap. Seats are comfortable and hug nicely offering good support. Climate control and front electric windows and a great stereo. It has line in and USB connection for iPod / iPhone. This can charge on the go as well. Bluetooth is as standard and the Ford Sync system is great. Easy to pair with my iPhone and call via voice commands. Outside: In my opinion it looks grown up and I love the new grille. Nearly as large as my old Focus so you get the best of both worlds in my opinion. Boot: Not the largest boot on offer but still capable of suitcases and shopping. Can be extended with the 60/40 split rear seats, although they don't fold flat. Cost to run: Cheap, cheap, cheap. Road tax negligible and running costs the same.

    All in all, I love it. Thank you Ford.

    My car

    good car to drive,and handles the road well.On average got 61mpg,thats non motorway driving which is good.The fiesta is an ok car to own but I think the interior lets it down,a bit boring in this day and age.owned the car for two years with out any problems.If you want an average car this is it,especially for the mpg.if you want something stylish and quick,this is not the car for you!

    My car

    I got this car after loosing my second car after only 73 hours to a bad car crash. It's worth mentioning my old car was silver, and I knew I didn't want another silver one. The sales people at ford were the only sales people in over fifteen car sales places who didn't try to tell me I was being stupid by refusing to buy a silver car. Mine is bright yellow.

    Okay, so whatcar says the engine is noisy. Yes. It's a diesel, they are noisy engines. Not so noisy it's uncomfortable to drive though! It's not a heavy car at all, picks up speed quickly, handles well. I honestly couldn't fault it. Running costs are absolutely fantastic! My model happens to be tax exempt, which is awesome! It's such a comfortable car, a nice size. And after a bad car crash, all the safety features it comes with make me feel safe driving this car, which is a really big deal! Honestly I love it!
