The Ford Fiesta is a supermini in a class of its own – it looks stylish, is great fun to drive and is economical, too. Whichever engine you choose, economy is very good in the Fiesta, especially the 1.5-litre TDCi diesel, which returns an impressive 85mpg. Whether you choose diesel or petrol power, you’ll find the Fiesta is fun to drive. The Fiesta has a comfortable yet polished ride with plenty of grip, while engine and road noise are suppressed, so long journeys aren’t a chore. The Fiesta’s design dates back to 2009, but a recent facelift means it still looks as modern as its closest rivals, although the interior is starting to show its age a little. The Fiesta’s short wheelbase means it’s easy to maneuver around towns or cities and also very easy to park. All Fiesta models get a smooth five-speed manual gearbox as standard. The Ford Fiesta isn’t the most practical small hatchback, with a small boot and cramped rear seats. With its flared headlights and Aston Martin-style front grille, the Fiesta is certainly a handsome hatchback.
