Since the outset Ford Fiestas have been a hit with British motorists, but the reality is that none of the previous generations offered much else besides a nice drive, and buyers often opted for the vehicle because they'd been offered a deal too good to turn down. This seventh generation model however has changed all that. It's smarter to look at, nicer to sit in, even better to drive and, perhaps most of all, smarter under the bonnet.
So is it a better all-round car then? Many would agree. It may not be the roomiest or most luxurious car in the supermini sector but in just about every other important aspect it's either one of the best or class-leading. It has unpretentious quality and concentrates on the things that are really crucial for small car buyers: 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 supermini car that buyers just can't ignore.
Deciding to lease a Ford Fiesta with FVL opens up an array of choice which includes the Ghia, Zetec and Style models with variations of engine size, models and number of doors. The Ford Fiesta has proved to be a popular car throughout the years and is constantly evolving.
The Ford Fiestas of today are unrecognisable from those of even twenty years ago but that's undoubtedly a good thing as advancements in technology, safety and fuel economy have positively transformed the Fiesta driving experience. Leasing a Ford Fiesta today will be a journey from the past into the future.
