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

The Active version of the Fiesta gets tough-looking black wheel arches, jacked-up suspension and roof rails, along with an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a front centre armrest, rear parking sensors, a seven-speaker stereo, a leather steering wheel and gear lever, cruise control, power-folding door mirrors, keyless start, automatic wipers and sat-nav plus everything you get with entry-level Trend.

A fine engine that pulls well from low revs and delivers decent performance, hitting 0-62mph in 10.6sec. Indeed, we reckon it's the sweet spot in the range and comes with a sweet-shifting six-speed manual gearbox.
