Zetec is one rung up the ladder from entry-level Style and brings alloy wheels, a heated windscreen, front fog lights, a smarter-looking interior and a much more advanced infotainment package. Nevertheless, it's worth paying a bit extra for the 8.0in touchscreen. While our favourite version is the sportier ST-Line, the softer suspension you get with Zetec is great if you're after the best ride quality.
A slightly more powerful version of the entry-level 1.1-litre petrol engine. It’s fine around town, but does feel a bit gutless on faster roads; it's worth upgrading to one of the turbocharged 1.0 Ecoboost engines. Comes with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard.
