How it copes with people and clutter
Despite its slightly raised driving position, the Fiesta has plenty of head room in the front. Leg room is also good, so you’ll have no complaints – even from friends measuring more than six feet tall.
There’s a reasonable amount of oddment storage, including an accommodating glovebox and an area ahead of the gear lever that’s just about big enough for a smartphone. Each door pockets can hold a small drinks bottle and there's a pair of cupholders conveniently positioned between the seats.
Need a big boot? Well, we managed to fit five carry-on suitcases below the Fiesta's parcel shelf, and that isn't at all bad. Mind you, there's even more room in the boot of a Jazz, Ibiza or Polo.
There’s also a fairly large drop down from the entrance to the boot floor – not ideal when you're trying to slide in heavy items.
Dropping the rear backrests leaves an annoying step in the floor of the Fiesta’s extended load bay, and Ford doesn't offer a height-adjustable boot floor to iron that out.
