ACURA Sport Car | Ford Fiesta

Replacing the UK’s most pop auto for the past times 8 years amongst a novel model is a rattling large deal.
Ford has simply done just that amongst the latest Fiesta, too the $64,000 inquiry is whether the novel auto is proficient plenty to remain at the top?
At commencement glance it looks similar Ford has played it prophylactic amongst the seventh-generation of the hugely successful supermini which has sold 4.5 1000000 since it was launched inwards 1976.

More evolutionary than revolutionary, the familiar profile is all the same there, but the keen-eyed volition spot the novel car’s to a greater extent than fluid lines, smoother bonnet, swept-back headlights too horizontal raise lights.
Still available equally a 3 or five-door (with a jacked-up, to a greater extent than rugged Active Crossover version inwards the pipeline), it’s also slightly longer too wider.
However, it’s within too nether the peel where the large changes convey occurred.
Billed equally the “most technologically advanced modest auto inwards Europe”, the Fiesta at nowadays sports an impressive listing of cutting-edge driver assistance too security gizmos, summation amount connectivity, piece the interior is zero curt of a revelation.

Let’s start amongst the cabin where the most obvious alter is inwards the centre console where Ford’s latest SYNC 3 infotainment organisation is beingness offered on the Fiesta for the commencement time.
Depending on which cut back degree you lot choose, it’s possible to convey an 8.0-inch “floating” touchscreen, giving you lot access to DAB radio, across the range, along amongst USB ports too Bluetooth connectivity equally standard, summation Apple CarPlay too Android Auto.
Not solely does the novel infotainment organisation erase simply about 50% of the sixth-gen’s bewildering break of buttons too bin the tiny infotainment screen, but it sets a template for a to a greater extent than attractive, cleaner cockpit design.
Thankfully, in that location are all the same plenty of modest storage areas dotted around, piece the comfort too character has been improved all circular amongst to a greater extent than soft-touch plastics.

 The novel Fiesta is improve packaged too, amongst a sense of extra infinite upwardly forepart too definitely to a greater extent than room for adults of an average peak behind.
The kicking has a slightly larger luggage capacity of 292 litres too there’s a wider opening for easier access, though it’s all the same solely average for its class.
The driving assistance too security applied scientific discipline on offering (though non all criterion throughout the range) includes Pre-Collision Assist amongst Pedestrian Detection available – Ford’s version of autonomous emergency braking (AEB).
There’s also cross-traffic alert, which tin flaming warn drivers that are reversing if it is non prophylactic to produce so, blind spot detection too Active Park Assist amongst Perpendicular Parking, which enables drivers to common hands‑free nose-to-tail too side-by-side.

The listing goes on, hence if you lot are considering the novel Fiesta, it’s definitely worth scanning the options listing too driver packs available.
I should add together that Ford is rightly excited nearly the novel B&O PLAY versions of the Fiesta, which offering an enhanced well sense amongst 10 speakers (including a boot-mounted subwoofer) too a fundamental speaker on transcend of the musical instrument panel.
Priced from £12,715 for the entry-level Style spec, the Fiesta attain continues through to Zetec (the most pop electrical current cut back level) too Titanium to B&O PLAY series, sporty ST-Line models too the luxury flagship Vignale from £19,345 – a spec available on the Fiesta for the commencement time.
The petrol too diesel fuel engines on offering include Ford’s acclaimed 1.0-litre EcoBoost three-cylinder petrol turbo inwards 100PS, 125PS too 140PS guises. There’s also a cheaper non-turbo three-cylinder 1.1-litre  (70PS too 85PS), summation a 1.5-litre diesel fuel (85PS or 120PS).
 

I tested the Titanium 1.5 TDCi (120PS), ST-Line 1.0T EcoBoost (140PS) too Vignale 1.0T EcoBoost (140PS), which were all mated to a six-speed manual gearbox (automatic versions of most models volition also live available).
After you lot press the Start button, you’re directly struck past times the refined cabin experience. Clearly a lot of operate has been done inwards this expanse amongst Ford claiming best-in-class levels of quietness.
Even amongst the to a greater extent than robust diesel fuel too the sportier growl of the ST-line, it’s a sophisticated driving sense for such a modest car.
The ride is all the same on the theatre side, but seems to absorb everyday bumps too rougher route surfaces amongst ease.

The Fiesta has ever been ane of the best treatment cars inwards its class, too the newcomer doesn’t disappoint. The criterion auto is simply equally much fun to displace equally it ever was amongst an easy-going blend of precise steering, agility, plenty of travelling pocket too first-class trunk control.
The ST-Line is the model to become for if you lot desire a to a greater extent than spirited drive, adding a slight growl to the familiar thrum of the eager three-cylinder 1.0 turbo too a sexy trunk kit, piece the treatment is fifty-fifty to a greater extent than entertaining thank you lot to a 10mm lower ride peak too stiffer suspension.
If you lot pass most of your fourth dimension on motorways, too hence the diesel fuel would brand sense. Powerful too refined, it’s a relaxed cruiser. The lowest output version (85PS) is the most fuel-efficient Fiesta – delivering 88.3mpg on paper, piece emitting 82g/km CO2.
The petrol engines are frugal too. Even the ST-Line 1.0 turbo has a claimed 62.8mpg, despite a 0-62mph fourth dimension of nine seconds too a 125mph transcend speed.
Ford hasn’t forgotten nearly personalisation either. Check out the varying trunk colour/roof combinations. Frozen White amongst a Race Red roof too matching door mirrors is peculiarly eye-catching.
Frankly, the novel Fiesta is difficult to criticise, but it’s non perfect either.

Some of the plastics inwards the cabin (eg the doors are a footling difficult too cheap), the manual gearbox is slightly notchy too I would convey liked to convey seen to a greater extent than tech – peculiarly autonomous emergency braking – criterion across the range.
But overall, the to a greater extent than upmarket Mk 7 Fiesta is an impressive auto too should convey no problem retaining its crown equally the best supermini on sale inwards the UK. Some feat, considering it’s upwardly against the likes of the novel Nissan Micra, the Renault Clio, SEAT Ibiza, Volkswagen Polo too Skoda Fabia.
