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.
The trimSee full equipment
Based on sporty ST-Line trim, but adds even larger (18in) alloys, automatic climate control and keyless entry. Rather pricey, though.
The engineSee full engine specs
The mid-range 99bhp engine is a fine engine, pulling well from low-revs and sprinting from 0-62mph over a second faster than the 74bhp entry-level engine. Even better, it manages decent fuel economy, helping keep running costs low. All of that makes it our favourite engine.
