Following its first full year on sale, the eighth-generation Fiesta continues to lead its segment for driver appeal and running costs.
It was the UK’s best-selling car in 2018, amassing almost 100,000 registrations.
Classy styling and great driveability make it popular among fleet drivers. New technology, better refinement and efficient engines mean the Fiesta is just as at home on the motorway as it is around town.
All versions come with lane departure warning and air conditioning as standard, while the popular Zetec model features a heated windscreen and an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone compatibility.
The Fiesta is available in three- and five-door body styles. There is also an Active small SUV version.
Both the Ecoboost petrol and TDCi diesel engines provide good performance and efficiency, with CO2 emissions from 96g/km. The most frugal models can achieve more than 70mpg.
Finalists: Audi A1, Citroën C3, Seat Ibiza, Škoda Fabia, Volkswagen Polo
