Imagine a city the size of Glasgow. Now imagine every single person living in it driving around in the same car. Well, that gives you a fair idea how many Ford Fiestas have been sold in Britain since 2008. Yep – Ford's humble hatchback has been the country’s most popular car for a decade.

And with good reason. It’s always been a cut above rivals to drive, often being touted as the best handling car in the class. There are also some fine engines to choose from, the most noteworthy of which are the 1.0-litre turbo Ecoboost units.

However, competition in the small car class is fiercer than ever. The latest Seat Ibiza is a thoroughly brilliant all-rounder and the Skoda Fabia offers space and value in abundance. Does the latest Fiesta have the talents to compete? And which engines and trims make the most sense? We’ll tell you all you need to know over the next few pages.

If you've already decided the Fiesta is the car for you, have a look at our New Car Buyer page for the best deals.
