What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Great comfort and handling; lively engines

Against Rear seat space could be better

Verdict Britain’s favourite supermini back in its day, and it's easy to see why

Go for… 1.25 LX 5dr

Avoid… 1.8 D Encore 5dr

Ford Fiesta Hatchback
  • 1. Check brakes thoroughly on a trest drive as they can wear quickly
  • 2. Damage to the suspension accounts for almost half of the faults reported to Warranty Direct

  • 4. The boot is a generous size for a supermini
  • 5. The 1.25-litre petrol engine is our pick from the various units available
