Ford Reviews

New Cars
Good: Sliding side doors and no central pillar mean unimpeded access. Five star Euro NCAP rating. Engines include 1.0 litre three-cylinder EcoBoost petrol. Decent drive.

Good: Neat styling. More practical than a Focus. Fine blend of ride comfort, handling and driver enjoyment. 1.6 TDCi emits 119g/km. High quality interior.
Bad: Small back window cuts rearwards visibility. 18-inch wheels don't do the ride any favours.
Good: Practical, spacious Fiesta based small SUV. Impressive 1.0 EcoBoost engine. Good quality ride. Low load deck good good for dogs to jump in.
Bad: Spare wheel on back door not everyone's taste. Door opens wrong way for RHD. Handling not up to usual Ford usual standards.
Good: Coming to the UK in 2015.
Bad: So far only shown as a concept car.
Good: Sharper look for the updated Fiesta. Comes with Ford's award winning 1.0 EcoBoost three-cylinder. One of the best small hatchbacks money can buy.
Bad: Lots of strong hatchback competition around.
Good: EcoBoost engine with 180PS and enhanced torque vectoring control make the 2013 Fiesta ST quick, sharp and safe.

Good: Fitted with impressive 250PS EcoBoost engine. Available as a hatchback or an estate. Great value for money compared to other hot hatches.
Bad: Doesn't quite have the character of the previous ST. Engine is very quiet and subdued exhaust note will disappoint some hot hatch fans
Good: Good to drive and comfortable. Versatile with foldaway seats. Generally good quality. Diesel automatic option. Plenty of room in all back seats.
Bad: No spare wheel but TPMS and runflat option from 2010.
Good: Seven seats as standard along with sliding side doors. Outstanding combination of ride and handling. Good range of low emission petrol and diesel engines.
Bad: A seven-seater for young families rather than those with tall teenagers.
Good: Fun to drive and economical, based on the Fiat 500 but handles so much better it donated its suspension improvements to the Fiat. More room in rear than 500.
Bad: Diesel engine not worth the extra. Never got TwinAir engine.
