As the UK’s best-selling vehicle, the Ford Fiesta really needs no introduction. This accolade hasn’t been achieved without merit - not only is it one of the most popular compact cars, it is also one of the best.
The Ford Fiesta is a brilliant car to drive, comes with an economical engine that lowers running costs, and is very attractively priced for its section of the market.
Fending off exceptionally good competition from the likes of the Volkswagen Polo and Seat Ibiza, the Fiesta really is a car worth considering if you’re in the market for something small and mighty.
