Ford Fiesta 'Best Small Car of the Year'

The Ford Fiesta has been selected Diesel Car magazine's Best Small Car of the Year

The Ford Fiesta has been selected Diesel Car magazine's Best Small Car of the Year 2010. Ian Robertson, editor of Diesel Car magazine said: "The Fiesta is great to drive with terrific handling, precise steering and a supple well-judged ride. The blend of good looks, frugal diesel engine and funky interior design makes it a real winner in our eyes."

The Ford Fiesta which was recently awarded Auto Express Car of the Year continues to be the UK’s top selling car with 43,611 sales so far in 2010. With excellent fuel economy, low CO2 emissions, cheap road tax and lower insurance costs the new Ford Fiesta really is worthy of Car of the Year.

The Ford Fiesta is a very pleasing modern car to look at and quite distinctive. Better still it looks expensive and upmarket. The three-door models look sportier but the five-door models are in real life more practical. The interior of the Ford Fiesta has a nice combination of textures and materials. The new all-electric power steering is perfectly weighted, precise and gives good feedback. Ford announced last month that Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) was standard across the Fiesta range. Bluetooth and USB connection are standard in Titanium models, there is more power for the stage V diesel engines and CO2 emissions are reduced.
