The first Ford Fiesta was always slightly at a loss compared to its rivals in the compact MPV class. It only had space for five so in spite of the often-praised snappy handling and attractive design, it was usually put aside by buyers looking for six or seven seats. There were those who wondered if the Fiesta really offered more than the five-door Focus hatchback or the Focus Estate, cars competing in the same market segment.
This Fiesta addresses these issues by being available either in five-seat form or as a seven-seater, the Grand Fiesta. The five-seat model has taken a slightly sportier, more dynamic direction in terms of styling and driving experience, with the larger model aimed at those needing interior space and versatility. Ford do underline the fact that the advanced seating system and re-worked cabin design have resulted in a new generation Fiesta that's more user-friendly in all its models.
The Fiesta has unpretentious quality and concentrates on the things that are really crucial for small car buyers wanting to finance a new car: the enjoyable handling and good value pricing Ford has long delivered to them in this segment but also low running costs, attention to safety and low pollution scores. And to cap it all the car delivers style and confidence that we've never yet seen from a Fiesta. This is, to put it simply, a compact car that buyers just can't ignore.
