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.get the best price
Trim: Titanium X
A bit too pricey to recommend. Titanium X is well equipped, with keyless entry, part-leather seats and a punchy B&O stereo fitted as standard, but cheaper versions of the Fiesta make more financial sense.
Engine: 1.5 TDCi
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.
