Ford Fiesta review: prettier, more able, refined, easy to use and with more rounded dynamics than before

Ford shifted a million of the previous-generation Fiestas in the UK alone. This one doesn’t drop the ball.

It’s great-looking, smart inside, refined, well-connected and thoroughly easy to use. It’s not the roomiest supermini, nor does it have the highest cabin quality, but they aren’t deal-breakers for most people.

But the Fiesta’s trump used to be the way it drove. There are some fine new rivals, especially the Micra, to give it some hurry-up. And sadly a little of the Fiesta’s sparkle has gone. Just the very last level of engagement. But overall, the dynamic package is even more rounded than before, so it’s hard to grumble.
