The Ford Fiesta is the best selling car in the UK, and comes in at a respectable number eight in Creditplus’ top ten most popular cars on finance in 2013 list. This month, the celebrated Ford Fiesta joins the likes of the Vauxhall Insignia, Renault Grand Scenic and BMW 3-Series to become the best car deal of the month.
There are plenty of great quality Ford Fiestas on the used car market, but with so many to choose from it can be difficult to know which spec to get, and how much to spend. Add to this the extra worry of making sure the car itself has been treated well and is in good condition, and it all becomes something of a hassle, rather than the enjoyable experience that buying a new car should be! Luckily, Creditplus have got the answer. Not only can we sort out finance for a huge range of customers, but we can also source the car for you. Our car buying experts will get you a car in fantastic condition, at a great price and we can even deliver it to your door – what could be easier?
So why should you get a Ford Fiesta with Creditplus? Read on for our full car review!
One thing is for sure – Ford Fiestas are great value for money. A Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec (our recommended model) costs just £12,945 brand new – but if you buy used you could get an even better deal. 3 year old Ford fiestas will generally cost upwards of £7,500 depending on the mileage, condition and spec, meaning that even those with a smaller monthly budget could find the car finance to suit their needs.
In terms of running costs the Ford Fiesta is, again, incredibly cheap. Tax is inexpensive thanks to low CO2 emissions, and insurance should come in at a very reasonable price thanks to the low cost to repair.
Ford fiesta feels both robust and well put together, something that is often lacking in the supermini category where budget often overtakes quality. No major faults have been reported, and the warranty package for new cars is fairly comprehensive.
In a world where fuel consumption is fast becoming one of the primary focal points of cars, the Fiesta excels. The 1.0 123bhp ECOBoost achieves a very satisfactory 65.7mpg – just what you would want from your supermini!
Scoring 5 stars in the EuroNCAP rating, safety is paramount in the Ford Fiesta. There are seven airbags as standard, electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes. There are some interesting optional extras for the Ford Fiesta too, such as ford’s Active City Stop system which automatically brakes the car if it detects a crash is imminent.
All too often lacking in the supermini category is comfort. Car manufacturers have a tendency to neglect the interiors of budget cars, choosing instead to focus on keeping the list price low. However, the new Ford Fiesta has an interior that is surprisingly well designed and put together.
There plenty of room in the front, but being a supermini, the back seats don’t leave much room, though this is to be expected.
There’s a reason that the Ford Fiesta is such a popular car – Ford have nailed this one, and everyone seems to want one. If you’re looking for a car that is safe, fun to drive, practical and (perhaps most importantly) cheap, look to the Ford Fiesta.
