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 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

Given the Fiesta's fun-driving nature, we'd be tempted to go for sporty ST-Line Edition trim with stiffer suspension – for even more agile cornering – and a bodykit and larger 17in alloy wheels – for a more aggressive look. Otherwise it's similarly specified to Titanium trim 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. It is fairly pricey, though.

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.
