Trim level

Active X
Active X is the range-topping Active model and gets a part-leather interior with heated front seats, electrically folding door mirrors with puddle lights, sat-nav, a rear-view camera and rear parking sensors. It’s packed with kit, but it’s pricey.
Active B+O Play
Gets the same equipment as Active 1 but – as you’d guess – benefits from an upgraded Bang &amp; Olufsen sound system.
Active 1
Based on Zetec trim, Active 1 gets LED lights, 17in alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, lane-keep assist and Ford’s latest Sync 3 infotainment system. If you want an Active model, this is the trim to go for.
Style
Entry-level Style trim is best avoided; you have to make do with steel wheels and the standard infotainment system is decidedly basic, although you do at least get air-con.
Titanium X
A bit too pricey to recommend. Titanium X is well equipped, with keyless entry, part-leather seats and a punchy B&amp;O stereo fitted as standard, but cheaper versions of the Fiesta make more financial sense.
Titanium B&O Play
Based on Titanium trim, but adds a punchy Bang &amp; Olufsen sound system. Only worth a look if you really love your music and only available in two paint colours – mint green or a pinky orange.
Titanium
Titanium trim is worth a look, adding cruise control, power-folding door mirrors, keyless start, automatic lights and wipers and sat-nav to everything you get on Zetec. It is quite pricey, though.
ST-Line X
Based on ST-Line trim but adds loads more kit, including sat-nav, climate control, power-folding door mirrors and part-leather seats. We&#39;d stick with regular ST-Line, though – it&#39;s quite a bit cheaper.
Our pick
ST-Line
Want something a bit sportier? ST-Line trim is probably for you because it brings 17in alloy wheels, stiffer sports suspension, figure-hugging seats and various sporty styling touches, including a bodykit and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. Bearing in mind that one of the main reasons to buy a Fiesta over the competition is its pert handling, we reckon that the sharper-driving ST-Line is the pick of the range, and still offers great value for money.
Zetec B&O Play
Based on our favourite Zetec trim, but adds sat-nav and a punchy Bang &amp; Olufsen sound system. Worth a look if you love your music, but only available in two paint colours – mint green or a pinky orange.
Zetec
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&#39;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&#39;re after the best ride quality.
