Ford Fiesta

It takes only the shortest of drives to realise just why the Fiesta remains the top seller in the UK. Its ability to blend a spacious and practical interior with excellent handling makes it one of our favourite small cars. Whether you need a car for urban pottering or longer motorway journeys, the Fiesta delivers with aplomb.

There’s also plenty of technology including Ford’s SYNC connectivity package and Active City Stop that helps prevent low-speed accidents. And the range caters for most people’s needs, boasting everything from frugal petrol and diesel engines to the sportier turbocharged ST. If you’re after a great small hatchback, look no further.

We have a 57 plate Jazz. It has good performance, and is very economical. It has the CVT gearbox and is ideal for my wife who is partially disabled.

If driven gently, it will return over 50 mpg which is very impressive for an automatic. It is a good car to drive.

I have only one gripe. The handbrake is not very good.

I have a 2006 Fiesta 1.4 which has done 32000 miles only as I live overseas apart from two holidays in the UK each year. It is parked outside and always starts first time after up to six months "sleep" and still has its original battery. Has been serviced every 3000 miles and the only problem is the air conditioning which fails as the engine needs to be run regularly to keep the AC system charged up. What a great little car.
