Key Facts

The Fiesta comes in a variety of packages, from the reasonably priced Zetec and Titanium models, to the performance-based Fiesta ST. Whichever you choose, you’re getting brilliant value, good looks and a great drive.

The main lure of the Fiesta has always been the amount of fun you can have for such a cheap price. While the ST-3 is the most expensive and quickest model in the range, it’s only slightly more expensive than the base Audi A3, whereas the Ford comes with around 70bhp more.

Why buy a Ford Fiesta?

Fiestas are many things: good value, robustly made, reliable and cheap to run, they also drive well and look sharp. When you get a Ford Fiesta, you’re not just buying a car; you’re buying almost 40 years’ worth of development and innovation. Tweaked and sculpted to perfection, today’s Fiesta does a whole host of things better than a lot of others in its class.

Fighting off the likes of the Renault Clio and the Citroen DS 3 at every turn, the Fiesta achieves a real balance between looking great and being fun to drive that other cheap hatchbacks are still trying to attain. As the base model is cheap to buy and run, the Fiesta makes for an ideal first car.

Which Ford Fiesta is right for me?

Latest Range


Middle of the pack: Ford Fiesta Zetec

Middle of the pack: Ford Fiesta Zetec

There’s a lot of choice with Zetec Fiesta models alone. There’s the style-focused Zetec S, which is the most elegant of the lot, while the base Zetec is the cheapest, and the Zetec ECOnetic achieves the best fuel efficiency.

If you’re looking for a Fiesta which is all about performance however, then consider the Zetec S Red and Black Editions. With sporty looks and the stats to match, it puts out almost 140bhp from its 1.0 litre engine, which delivers around 30bhp more than the base Audi A3 for around £2,000 less when new.

If you like mod cons: Ford Fiesta Titanium

If you like mod cons: Ford Fiesta Titanium

The Titanium range is brimming with equipment, so it’s definitely the one to go for if you’re a fan of on-board technology. The Titanium X is the most stocked-up in the entire Fiesta range, coming with a whole host of fun features from a stop/start button to air conditioning and cruise control. It could be the one to go for if you do lots of long journeys.

You’re after speed: Ford Fiesta ST

You’re after speed: Ford Fiesta ST

The top-of-the-range ST class is more focused on performance than any other Fiesta. Although not as powerful as the Peugeot 208 GTi or Renault Clio RenaultSport, the Fiesta ST has been proven to be more nimble and fun to drive. There are 3 levels of trim, with the ST-3 having a similar spec to the Titanium X, including cruise control, automatic lights and keyless entry. Keep an eye out for models with the Mountune pack; a Ford-approved modification that bumps the power from 182bhp to 205bhp without affecting any outstanding manufacturer’s warranty.

Good for families: Ford Fiesta Style

Good for families: Ford Fiesta Style

Coming with a few fancier pieces of trim, the Style is a level up from the base Fiesta Studio. The basic Style package comes in only a little dearer, so it’s still cheap in terms of the market. The Style also comes in both three and five-door models, so it’s a better option than the Studio for families who want more power and creature comforts, while certain engines can get over 62mpg – not too bad for a car of its age.

What are the Alternatives?

Vauxhall’s stalwart hatchback is a viable alternative to the Fiesta, as both cars do a lot of the same things well. It’s a cheap but fun car, while it also has sporty variants which put out more BHP than you need to simply get from point A to point B.

A cheap runner: Renault Clio

A cheap runner: Renault Clio

In the battle of the cheap hatchbacks, the Renault Clio has always gone toe-to-toe with the Fiesta since its inception. As such, the offerings are quite similar – some packages are aimed at sophistication, others at performance.

However, the top-of-the-range Clio Renaultsport Nav 200 achieves an astonishing 200bhp from its 1.6-litre engine, whereas the equivalent Fiesta only manages 180. The Clio is more expensive though, while the Fiesta looks sportier.

Something sporty looking: Citroen DS3

Something sporty looking: Citroen DS3

If there’s one car on the market that’s got the sporty hatchback look down to a tee, it’s the Citroen DS 3. Coming in a wide variety of colour options, there’s bound to be at least one look that hits the spot.

One advantage that the DS 3 holds over the Fiesta is that there is a convertible version available – the DS 3 Cabrio. With the most expensive model costing a reasonable £15,295 when new, it’s only slightly more expensive than the £13,295 hard-top version.

For continental cool: Fiat 500

For continental cool: Fiat 500

The 500 attains a vintage style that’s impossible for the likes of the Fiesta and the Clio to replicate – they just don’t have the same kind of heritage.

All this coolness comes at a reasonable price too, as the standard range of Fiat 500s starts at just over £10,500 when new and finishes at just a shade over £16,070 – cheaper than the Fiesta ST-3.

Love the overall feel of this car.
The glare on half of the dashboard, the same materials should have been used for all of the top part.

Peppy acceleration once the turbo kicks in, very positive steering.
The car doesn't like to be doing only 30mph when in 4th gear, so one has to change down to 3rd quite often. The thrummy engine note is quite noticeable at such times also.
