Think in terms of a price point starting from around £18,500 for the Fiesta EcoBoost 125PS mHEV; that's with base 'Trend'-spec trim. 'Titanium', 'Active' and 'ST-Line' trim levels are also available (with plusher 'Vignale' versions of each) and with these, you also have the option of a perkier 155PS version of this engine. Prices range right up to around £24,000. Avoid base trim and with the 125PS unit, you'll be offered the £1,500 option of Ford's 7-speed PowerShift auto transmission too. We'd be tempted by the crossover-style 'Active' model with its slightly raised ride height, SUV styling cues and 'slippery' road drive modes.
Key additions added to the options list of this revised Fiesta design include Matrix headlights, which block individual light rays to avoid blinding oncoming cars when high-beam is enabled. These headlamps can also adapt to bad weather and surrounding traffic. Safety-wise, an extra addition is 'Wrong Way Alert', which stops you turning into a road where you'll be driving against the traffic.
As usual on a Fiesta, you'll be offered some up-scale equipment options, examples including an openable panoramic glass roof. There's sophisticated safety too, including a Pedestrian Detection system that can even prevent collisions at night. And 'Active Park Assist' with brake interventions to prevent low-speed collisions when parking hands-free. As for standard equipment, even base models get features like air conditioning, Bluetooth, an 'Emergency Assistance' system and a 6-speaker stereo.
