FORGET THE HEATWAVE, AWARDS ARE RAINING ON THE ALL-NEW FORD FIESTA
The All-New Ford Fiesta celebrates another prestigious industry award from Auto Express magazine - Fiesta Supermini of the Year award therefore capping off a highly-successful first half of 2018 for Britain’s favourite car.
“The Ford Fiesta’s fantastic mix of affordability, practicality and infotainment is a big draw for buyers, and when combined with attractive PCP finance deals – how most people in this sector buy – it’s a winner. Add in the car’s dynamic ability and the Fiesta really cements its position as the king of the supermini class.” said Steve Fowler, Auto Express editor-in-chief.
This latest win for Fiesta is its eighth this year, having already also been declared Car of the Year and Best Small Car by Carbuyer.co.uk, sister site to Auto Express.
Buyers love its value, comfort and ride, as well as over a dozen safety and driver assist technologies including automatically halting the car in the event of a pedestrian stepping into its path.
Andy Barratt, Ford of Britain chairman and managing director, said: “As best-selling car for over 10 years, us Brits have truly taken the Ford Fiesta to our hearts. The pressure was on to deliver a replacement which would continue Fiesta’s reign – which Ford has done and Auto Express has recognised.”
The All-New Ford Fiesta ST has just come on sale and promises to raise the bar for supermini hot hatches, with 200PS generated by its all-new, three-cylinder, 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine and handling to match.
The Fiesta Active offers a muscular new look, literally raising the Fiesta above the crowd. SUV-inspired styling includes roof rails, wider wheel arches, and distinctive 17” alloy wheels.
The All-New Ford Fiesta range all come with the highest five-star Euro NCAP rating thanks to its lane-keeping alert, seatbelt minder and speed limiter for when taken out by inexperienced drivers.
