Review

The Ford Fiesta is superb to drive, smart inside and well equipped, plus it offers a broad range of trim levels – from the affordable Trend to the SUV-inspired Active – to cater for many tastes and budgets. It’s one of the very best small cars you can buy, but it can prove quite pricey in higher trims and the rival Volkswagen Polo just has the edge for ride comfort, safety and rear-seat space.

get the best price

This entry-level trim is certainly worth a look – it gets you 16in alloy wheels, a heated windscreen, auto lights, two USB ports, a six-speaker stereo, driver's seat height adjustment, lane departure waring and assist, air conditioning, privacy glass, a chrome surround for the front grille, LED dipped beam headlights, front foglights and an 8.0in touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto.

This engine is a cracker. Responsive around town and impressively hushed at motorway speed, it’s a brilliantly flexible unit. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. You can opt for an automatic gearbox, but if you do CO2 emissions jump up compared with the manual, while fuel economy is also noticeably worse.
