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 a 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 trimSee full equipment
Pushes the Fiesta's price into territory it can't compete in. So, while it comes with 17in alloys, quilted leather seats, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a rear-view camera, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot recognition and automatic emergency braking, if you've got this much money to spend, an Audi A1 or Peugeot 208 would be a better buy.
The engineSee full engine specs
A fine engine with a bit more zip along with greater efficiency than the Ecoboost 95. It's available only on the posher trim levels, cutting over a second off the Ecoboost 95's 0-62mph dash (down to 9.4sec). It's the only engine available with the option of a seven-speed automatic gearbox, but, be warned, it doesn't react that quickly when you ask for a burst of acceleration. The standard, slick, six-speed manual is a better choice.
