FORD Fiesta reviewNGC verdict 23.05.2012
This will be the last eco advancement model before the new Fiesta debuts in four months' time. As usual, the problem with today's high economy, high technology models is that they also have a high price and motorists could do a lot of motoring, even before discounts, if they chose a cheaper model such as the 1.25 litre Studio at £9,795.
Refinement seems to have taken a hit here too. Ford, incidentally, remains unconvinced about the environmental and practical use of hybrid power units.
