Ford Fiesta

Best feature

My Fiesta has a very small 1l engine. Even though I thought I wouldn’t enjoy the ride very much, I opted for this engine since I bought it for short city runs where I thought I wouldn’t need a fast car, but rather a fuel efficient one. And I got the fuel efficiency, but the performance is also far from sluggish. I later learned that the engine is an award-winning machine and now I am very happy I got this car. The Fiesta has 100 horsepower, but with the weight of just about 1,000kg, 100 hp is enough to satisfy me during those city runs. The top speed is said to be 180km/h, although I have never driven it so fast, but the acceleration to 100km/h is about 11-12 seconds, which is ok. The fuel consumption is just amazing, especially having in mind that this is a petrol car. In the worst city driving conditions it was about 6l/100km, while a relaxed extra-urban driving dropped it down to well under 4l/100km, which I found surprising. It also looks pretty good. It is sleek and stylish and looks like a proper hatchback. On the inside, the highly placed multimedia screen is just the right size and it is in line of sight, so you don’t have to lower your eyes to read the info on it. All in all, the Fiesta is pretty cheap, considering what it has to offer. If you need an inexpensive city car taht is easy to drive, park and reasonably cheap to service and buy, this is the car for you. Plus, the Fiesta has the 5-star safety rating from NCAP and this is very important for me.

Worst feature

The Stop/Start system doesn’t always work. I don’t know what the issue is, but it is not a considerable problem so I just drive it as is. It’s usually fine, but sometimes it doesn’t work. The room at the back is not the best, but this is a city car, so it’s fine. Also, when driving faster, it is not very stable during sharper turns.
