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
The trimSee full equipment
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.

Diesel engines rarely make sense in cars this small. Unless you do a serious amount of miles we'd suggest you look at one of the 1.0 Ecoboost petrols instead.
