How much does it cost to run a Ford Fiesta hatchback?
Thankfully, most Fiestas manage excellent fuel economy figures and should, therefore, keep running costs low.
The base 1.1-litre petrol has an average economy figure of 64.2mpg for both the 69 and 84bhp versions. The more powerful 99bhp and 123bhp 1.0-litre Ecoboost engines both have the same economy figure of 65.7mpg, although this does drop to 54.3mpg when fitted with an automatic gearbox. The 138bhp Ecoboost engine is reserved for top-spec models and gets 62.8mpg.
If outright efficiency is what you need, then the 84bhp 1.5-litre diesel is the one to go for because it has an average of 88.3mpg. The 118bhp version of the same engine isn’t quite as efficient at 80.7mpg.
All cars registered after April 2017 will cost you £140 per year in road tax.
Insurance is good for the class, and Ford offers competitive servicing prices and various servicing plans which can be paid for in a lump sum or by monthly direct debits. There’s even the offer of UK and European roadside assistance with Ford Schedule Services from the date of the service until the date the next one is due.
