Background

The new Fiesta is one of the best cars Ford of Europe currently makes – and not for nothing has it been Britain's bestselling car for nearly a decade, taking over from the Focus. Good dynamics, roomy and edgily styled - and from 2017, the interior's much tidier, too. For more information on the Fiesta car range, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec review

This car needs little introduction. It's a nameplate that's been around since the 1970s and has become as firmly established in the psyche of Europeans as any car on sale today. A scarcely believable 4.5 million have been sold in the UK since 1976 - and 1m of those were the outgoing 2008-on generation. That's impressive stuff. Pick from three- and five-door bodystyles and a vast swathe of engines options; the latest EcoBoost petrols are so good, they render the pricier diesels redundant at this price point. The last Fiesta ST hot hatch was a hoot - one of the best pocket rockets of the past few years, and comes highly recommended. The omens are good for the next one coming in spring 2018. But it's the way that even humdrum Fiesta hatches combine sharp, pointy steering with agile handling and a cosseting-but-firm ride that we admire. Ford has democratised great chassis tech for the masses in recent years, and that's nowhere better espoused than in the humble Fiesta supermini. It's a cracking small car.

The one we'd buy

If funds allow, the Fiesta ST is a cracker! Otherwise, a nice 1.0 Ecoboost 125ps please

The one we'd avoid like the plague

The nat-asp 1.1 petrol is a bit weedy. Save up for an Ecoboost

Rivals to consider

Peugeot 208, Renault Clio, Seat Ibiza, VW Polo

For

Slick drive, value proposition, stylish design inside and out

Against

Not the most spacious supermini, plastics still cheap 'n' cheerful, Fiesta is so plentiful you'll not stand out from the crowd
