Ford Fiesta

(2017 - present)

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.

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.
