Superb to drive, pleasant to sit in and well equipped. The Fiesta is a fine small car, but it can prove quite pricey in higher trims and the Volkswagen Polo just has the edge for ride comfort, safety and rear-seat space.

Based on the Active model, so you get SUV-inspired looks and a slightly raised ride height. This X version has more creature comforts, but it's too pricey for us to recommend.

This range-topping mild-hybrid engine is worth considering. As the most powerful engine in the standard Fiesta range (excluding the 1.5 Ecoboost in the ST hot hatch) it’s sufficiently potent, pulling hard from low revs and making overtaking easy. The mild-hybrid technology means that it remains efficient and gives an extra power boost from a standstill.
