Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Ford Fiesta hatchback?

The Vauxhall Corsa is similarly abundant, tough and inexpensive, although it’s not as much fun to drive.

Nissan’s Micra offered more equipment as standard when new – specifically safety items such as anti-lock brakes and side airbags – so it is worth considering if you’re buying for a new driver as a first car.

Overview

The Fiesta is a practical hatchback that you can buy and run on a tiny budget. That it’s fun and reliable only adds to its allure.

  • Fun to drive
  • Affordable to buy and run
  • Space for four adults
  • Plenty to choose from in the classifieds
  • Forgettable looks
  • Firm suspension
  • The VW Polo feels classier inside
