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 SUV-like Active X version gets tough-looking black wheel arches, jacked-up suspension, roof rails and everything that the regular Active Edition comes with, plus 18in alloy wheels, keyless entry, part-leather seats, traffic sign recognition, a B&O sound system, climate control, passenger seat height adjustment, lumbar adjustment for both front seats and wireless phone charging. 

The Ecoboost Hybrid 155 is another engine that's well worth a look, especially if you want something really quite nippy because it sprints from zero to 62mph in just 8.9sec. It'll still manage good fuel consumption and CO2 emissions if you drive it carefully.
