The Ford Fiesta and Mazda 2 have shoehorned their way to joint runners-up position in Motoring.co.uk's Twelve Cars of Christmas list. This premium pack of Christmas crackers contains our favourite vehicles based on economy, space, price, style, and popularity. So, why do these stylish super-minis appear on the list?

The Fiesta and Mazda 2 share a position on the list because they are constructed on the same platform. Both vehicles therefore have similar strengths. These include an impressive range of engines - four petrols and two diesels in the Fiesta, and three petrols and two diesels in the Mazda 2.

These popular hatchbacks are also generously equipped. The Fiesta has a key-less entry system, Bluetooth technology, and knee air bag in case Santa distracts you with his low flying sleigh. The Mazda 2 has the usual basic gadgets - plus high-end models feature traction control, stability control, and cruise control. Surely, that is enough control for anyone to handle.

The Fiesta and Mazda 2 deserve their place on the Christmas list because they perform beyond their price tags. The Fiesta is available from only £10,895, and the Mazda 2 starts at the bargain basement price of £9,295. These are modest sums for vehicles with excellent handling, low running costs, copious interior space, and rock solid durability. So, let's write a letter to Santa. He may just squeeze a new super-mini down the chimney.
