The Ford Fiesta remains the UK’s best-selling vehicle with 67,103 sales for the year to date. The Ford Fiesta is easy on fuel, cheap to insure and holds it value well. New high tech developments have made the UK’s bestselling car drop Co2 emissions from 95 to 87g/km, the improved efficiency has been achieved through the introduction of auto-Start-Stop and upgrades to the 95PS 1.6TDCi engine including friction and combustion improvements, calibration optimisation, revised gear ratios, smart regenerative charging, EcoMode and improved efficiency of the air conditioning, cooling fan and alternator.
The Ford Fiesta is smart, drives well and is offered with a range of economical engines. The three door model looks sportier but the five door maybe more practical. The Ford Fiesta is great to drive with precise steering and a supple well judged ride. The new all electric power steering is perfectly weighted and precise.
The Ford Fiesta was recently named ‘Best Small Car 2012’ in the 2012 CarBuyer Car of the Year awards. Carbuyer said “the Ford Fiesta’s blend of driving fun, family-friendly practicality and great value makes it hard to beat. It's the way the Fiesta drives that really stands out. Agile handling and sporty responses make it fun to drive on a twisting back road, while the comfortable suspension and low noise levels help take the strain out of long motorway journeys.
