This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Ford Fiesta Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 5 out of 5 5.0

Rated as a four-star car in the Euro NCAP crash tests, the Fiesta offers good crash protection, although the organisation picked up on possible injuries to the driver’s chest. However there are dual front airbags and ABS with electronic brake force distribution on every car while side airbags are optional. All cars have an immobiliser but only Style upwards gets remote central locking.

Ghia and Zetec S have an alarm.

The boot is a good size for a small car like this, though plump for the entry-level Studio model and you won't get 60/40 split folding seats, which limits its practicality. For models with the folding seats, it makes a pretty versatile car, capable of carrying large items plus it's easy to load. Inside there's a decent-sized glovebox and a few storage areas for odds and ends.
