The Ford Fiesta has been 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.
The Ford Fiesta is the UK’s top selling car it drives well and is offered with a range of economical engines. The three door model boasts sporty looks but the five door is more practical. The Ford Fiesta is easy on fuel, cheap to insure and holds it value well.
The use of advanced new steels to the bodywork structure gives Ford Fiesta owners the protection of a robust safety cell, combined with excellent fuel economy from a lightweight body. This light weight helps to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions across the Ford Fiesta range, including for the exceptionally frugal ECOnetic model, which achieves combined fuel economy of 76.3mpg and 98g CO2/km emissions for road tax-exempt motoring.
