The Ford Fiesta have been one of the best small hatchback offerings on the market for some time now. Even in its older generation form the Fiesta still offers a superb drive, not only is it one of the most comfortable offerings in this category, but probably also offers the best handling characteristics. It's also quite smart inside and well equipped. You will find that the 1.4-litre Ecoboost engine is quite punchy, although it’s one of the slowest hatches in our finalist line-up.
