Ownership cost

What used Ford Fiesta hatchback will I get for my budget?

Prices for a Ford Fiesta start at around £7500 for a 2017 version. This should buy you a car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history. If you spend £8000 or more, you should have a fair choice of Fiestas from 2018, or £9500 to £12,000 and above for a 2019 example. Spend between £12,000 and £15,000 on a good 2020 car. 

An early version of the hot hatch ST will set you back at least £14,000. 

Servicing costs

Ford offers competitive servicing prices and various servicing plans, which can be paid for by monthly direct debit. There’s also cheaper Ford Essentials servicing for examples that are outside of the manufacturer's warranty period; it costs £169.

Diesel and 1.5 petrol ST models require annual servicing, with diesel having a slightly shorter mileage limit of 10,000 miles compared with 12,500 miles of the ST. The 1.0 Ecoboost and 1.1 petrols need inspecting every 2 years or 18,000 miles.
