Which used Ford Fiesta hatchback should I buy?
The diesels make sense if you’re doing big miles, with the 1.4 TDCi offering an official combined economy figure in the early 60mpg range. The near 15sec it takes to get to 62mph from a standstill shouldn’t put you off, because it feels faster than the figures suggest.
If speed is your goal then the 148bhp 2.0-litre ST will appeal. A sub 9.0sec 0-62mph time combines with a smart body kit and revised suspension to make it the enthusiast's pick, although there’s fun to be had behind the wheel of any Fiesta.
