Used Ford Fiesta information

Engines and transmissions

Over the years, there have been many different engines available with the Fiesta, including petrol, diesel and mild hybrid options.

Petrol
  • Petrol engines are the most common on the used market
  • EcoBoost engines offer enhanced economy and performance
  • Expect to achieve around 40 to 50mpg
Diesel
  • Used diesel variants are also widely available across the Fiesta's multiple generations
  • Great option for those who regularly complete longer journeys
  • 50mpg+ can be easily achieved, helping to reduce the costs of a long road trip or daily commute
Hybrid
  • Later generations of the Fiesta are also available with an intelligent mild hybrid system to increase fuel efficiency by up to 10%
  • This will typically come at a premium on the used market, however, so bear that in mind while browsing
Performance
  • If you're after the sharpest means of driving then the ST variant is the one to go for
  • Equipped with a performance-oriented petrol engine
  • Still capable of 35-45mpg if driven carefully

Practicality

Despite its compact size, the Ford Fiesta is a surprisingly practical vehicle, making it a suitable option for various lifestyles.

Interior space
  • Decent amount of head and legroom for all occupants
  • Rear seats are best reserved for children or shorter adults, especially on longer journeys
Boot space
  • While it's not quite on par with class leaders such as the Honda Jazz and Skoda Fabia in terms of practicality, the Ford Fiesta still holds its own and offers a boot space of around 300 litres
  • Should be more than enough for the weekly shop or a couple of suitcases
  • Rear seats fold down to accommodate larger items
Bodystyles
  • 3-door variants will be common on the used market
  • If you're after the highest degree of practicality then 5-door models are also available to make life easier
  • Opting for an 'Active' model can enhance practicality further, with extras such as roof bars allowing you to carry additional equipment

Safety

  • All of the most recent generations of Fiesta are very safe cars
  • Latest generation is equipped with plenty of advanced safety features
  • All of the most recent Fiestas were rated 5* for safety when tested by Euro NCAP
  • Older generations have less safety tech, which is to be expected

Technology

  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto fitted to most examples from 2016 onwards
  • Though affordable, Fiestas still come well-equipped with a variety of clever gadgets and features
  • All seventh-generation Fiestas are equipped with LED headlamps, heated windscreen and touchscreen infotainment
  • Higher specifications get features such as keyless entry and rearview camera
  • Older generations are starting to feel a little dated, but some of the technology on offer is still handy, such as parking sensors

Ford Fiesta generations

Ford fiesta

Each generation of the Ford Fiesta brought new technology and contemporary looks to keep them up-to-date with evolving needs.

While each is based on the same foundations, later generations better differentiate their range to suit various lifestyles with luxury, active and sporty models on offer. Earlier generations, while a little dated in today's world, still prove to be a practical and dependable choice and are well-suited to those working with a tighter budget.

Seventh Generation (2017 to Present)

Used seventh-generation Ford Fiesta models (also commonly referred to as Mk8 Fiestas in the UK) are the most advanced to date, with style and technology being at the forefront of their design.

Featuring a range of efficient engines, including EcoBoost options, the seventh-generation Fiesta offers impressive fuel economy and is available in various trims, including 'Titanium', 'ST-Line', and 'Vignale', each offering distinct features and levels of luxury.

The car's agile handling and responsive steering remain, while advanced safety features help to enhance overall safety. A facelifted model was also introduced in 2021 that kept the Fiesta up-to-date with modern styling. This proved to be the last Fiesta model available, as Ford announced the end of production in 2023, shifting its focus towards its electrified line-up.

Used Ford Fiesta FAQ's

Which Fiesta model is best?

Which Ford Fiesta model is best will depend on your lifestyle and personal preferences. One of the more popular options is an 'ST-Line' model (Previously known as 'Zetec S'), thanks to its sportier looks and advanced technology. 'Active' models are also a great choice thanks to their slightly different offering, coming equipped with various features that are more suited to adventurous individuals or families. If you're working on a budget then Entry-level 'Trend' (or 'Zetec') models will most likely be best, while those looking for a more luxury approach will find 'Titanium' models appealing.

Is it good to buy a second-hand Fiesta?

Absolutely. Ford Fiestas are a very common sight on Britain's roads, and for good reason. Each generation brought something new to the supermini segment and you're able to benefit from these features when buying a used example.

Why are Fiestas so cheap?

Through the use of clever cost-saving techniques, the Ford Fiesta was designed to be accessible to the average consumer and has always been priced at an affordable position. These prices have now transferred over to the used market, allowing you to get behind the wheel of a Fiesta for a great price.

What Fiesta is the cheapest to insure?

Most Ford Fiesta models are fairly cheap to insure, but if you're looking for the lowest insurance costs then you'll want to look for models with lower-powered engines. This includes the likes of the 1.25-litre 'Studio' variant (2008 to 2017) and the 1.1-litre 'Style' variant (2016 to 2023) which reside in insurance groups 3 and 2 respectively.

Are Ford Fiestas expensive to run?

No. With affordable routine maintenance and parts, as well as impressive fuel economy figures, a used Ford Fiesta will not be expensive to run.

Is the Ford Fiesta considered a good car?

Yes, the Ford Fiesta is a highly-respected model within its segment, proving to be one of the UK's most popular vehicles.

Is the Ford Fiesta a good car for beginners?

With a straightforward approach and various bits of technology to help out, a used Ford Fiesta is one of the best used small cars for new drivers. The Fiesta is also a go-to choice for driving instructors across the UK, so many beginners will be familiar with its feel.
