Ford Fiesta Titanium

“Opt for the automatic EcoBoost and the Ford Fiesta Titanium gives executive-car specification, but in a small package that is easy to park and frugal to run.”

Owners Rating

The Ford Fiesta Titanium is an excellent pick if you’re looking for a small car with lots of equipment that makes it easier to live with every day. While it does without a sporty body kit, the Titanium does get chrome trim on its exterior, eye-catching 16-inch alloy wheels, and bright LED daytime running lights. Useful equipment additions include power-folding mirrors, which won’t get smashed on tight streets and also have lights that illuminate the street around the car, so you can avoid stepping in puddles.

Once inside, you’ll find a premium Sony stereo (fitted with Bluetooth), auto headlights, cruise control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, auto wipers, cruise control, and climate control. In fact, the Titanium comes loaded with so much kit; it seems best to opt for the EcoBoost PowerShift automatic, which takes the strain out of city driving. The manual EcoBoost, and 1.6-litre diesel, will be more economical, though.

Good points

The Ford Fiesta Titanium proves choosing to drive a small car doesn’t mean you have to do without the extra kit of a large saloon. The Ford Fiesta Titanium looks good from outside, while its folding electric door mirrors are useful on tight city streets. Those same mirrors illuminate the sides of the car to stop you treading on anything undesirable.The car’s Sony DAB stereo has plenty of stations to choose from, as well as the option to stream music wirelessly. Climate control means the interior will always be the right temperature, while cruise control is useful on long motorway journeys.

Bad points

All that equipment comes at a cost and, fitted with the EcoBoost engine as well as the PowerShift automatic gearbox, the Ford Fiesta Titanium can start to look quite expensive. Bearing in mind that the Fiesta is already pricier than rivals from Kia and Hyundai. While it adds extra convenience, fitting the PowerShift automatic gearbox drops the EcoBoost’s economy by around 10mpg, and also robs some involvement from the overall driving experience.In general, we also mark the Fiesta down for having a boot that is smaller than the ones found in key rivals, such as the Vauxhall Corsa.

Our choice

The Ford Fiesta Titanium can be specced with a selection of petrol and diesel engines, but our pick is the 123bhp 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol because it’s both thrifty and nippy.
