Many owners are sad to see that the Fiesta has been discontinued, although it is still possible to find new examples for sale at some Ford dealers. If you wife has her heart set on another example she could consider purchasing a nearly-new example next year, or consider the Ford Puma, which offers a similarly fun driving experience thanks to sharing many of the Fiesta's mechanical components.

Alternatively we would suggest looking at cars like the Skoda Fabia, Vauxhall Corsa and Peugeot 208.
