The Fiesta is a humble hatchback that’s as fun to drive as some sports cars, thanks to its sharp handling and precise, well-weighted steering. Keen drivers will love its responsive, composed nature on demanding roads, but it’s the Fiesta’s ability to put a smile on your face on even the most mundane journey that’s so endearing.
Put simply, the Fiesta is the best-handling small car on the market and actually outshines many cars from the class above. Mind you, the Seat Ibiza comes jolly close to being the Fiesta’s equal, even though it isn’t quite as nimble.
ST-Line versions of the Fiesta receive sports suspension with a lower ride height. This makes the Fiesta even more agile and grippy, which is great if you want hot hatch handling without the bigger bills that a powerful engine brings.
