The Ford Fiesta is superb to drive, smart inside and well equipped. It’s one of the very best small cars, but the rival Volkswagen Polo is an even better all-rounder.

Trim: Active 1

Based on Zetec trim, Active 1 gets LED lights, 17in alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, lane-keep assist and Ford’s latest Sync 3 infotainment system. If you want an Active model, this is the trim to go for.

Engine: 1.0 EcoBoost

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.
