The Ford Fiesta is a small supermini-class hatchback, available in both three- and five-door body styles. It has been the best-selling car in the UK since its launch in the second half of 2017, following in the wheel tracks of its predecessor. In fact, 2020 marked the 12th year in a row that the Ford Fiesta (across three generations) has been the UK’s top-selling car.

There is a hot-hatch performance version of the Fiesta called the Fiesta ST, and a lifestyle-oriented high-riding version called the Fiesta Active. We are building separate pages for both of these versions, so check back soon.

The Fiesta has received good scores compared to its rivals from most UK media sources, and is almost universally praised for its driving dynamics and huge range of model variants. As well as being the most popular new car in the UK, it is also one of the best-ranked cars in its class according to our unique Expert Rating index.
