The 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav on Titanium models and above is bright and relatively simple to use, even if it isn’t as intuitive or as quick to respond as the one in the rival Seat Ibiza. Our only real complaint is that there are no physical shortcut buttons to make it easier to hop between functions.
Big-selling Zetec and ST-Line trims make do with a 6.5in touchscreen that doesn’t have a built-in sat-nav, although upgrading to the larger screen won’t break the bank. Meanwhile, all trims apart from entry-level Style have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to tether your phone and control selected apps through the car’s touchscreen, including navigation.
As for Style trim, you get an AM/FM radio with a 4.2in screen and Bluetooth. You also get a device dock that holds your smartphone if you want to use it as a sat-nav, for instance. It’s worth upgrading to Zetec, though.
The upgraded Bang & Olufsen sound system is seriously punchy and well worth considering if you love music. This comes as standard on B&O editions, while a glovebox-mounted CD player is optional on all Fiestas.
