Which used Ford Fiesta hatchback should I buy?

You can't really go too far wrong with any of the Fiestas, although it's best to avoid the 1.3-litre petrol and non-turbo 1.8 diesel. It's also wise to steer clear of the basic Encore models.

For us, the best model is the 1.25 LX 5dr because it's superb fun to drive and has excellent fuel economy. The five-door body allows better access to the rear seats, although if you need to carry adults regularly it might be wise to look for a Focus instead of a Fiesta.
