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 the rival Volkswagen Polo just has the edge for ride comfort, standard safety and rear seat space.

Trim: ST-3

ST-3 adds 18in alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, power-folding door mirrors, a heated steering wheel, sat-nav, traffic sign recognition, a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, driver and passenger lumbar adjustment and keyless entry.

Engine: 1.5 EcoBoost

The Fiesta ST's engine is a cracker, and so much more soulful than a Renault Clio RS's or VW Polo GTI's. It pulls heartily from low revs and enjoys spinning up to its limiter, all the while accompanied by a muscular, growling soundtrack that’s enhanced tastefully by a Sound Symposer. Proper pops and cracks from the sports exhaust finish the sound effects. It's certainly the most aggressive three-cylinder motor we've encountered, and the standard six-speed manual gearbox, which has a short, slick, snappy lever and well-stacked gear ratios, adds the final flourish.
