The Ford Fiesta is superb to drive, smart inside and well equipped – it’s one of the very best small carsget the best price
Want something a bit sportier? ST-Line trim is probably for you because it brings 17in alloy wheels, stiffer sports suspension, figure-hugging seats and various sporty styling touches, including a bodykit and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. Bearing in mind that one of the main reasons to buy a Fiesta over the competition is its pert handling, we reckon that the sharper-driving ST-Line is the pick of the range, and still offers great value for money.
Engine:1.0 EcoBoost 125
The 99bhp 1.0-litre is great, but this 123bhp version is even better without costing you much more to buy or run. It is a responsive, free-revving, sweet unit that's a peach to drive, and comes with a slick, six-speed manual gearbox.
