The Review

Long Term Review (3 Years Plus) City Cars Ford Fiesta Fiesta VII (Mk7) - (2009) 1.6 Ti-VCT (120 Hp) 5d

Ford Fiesta 1.6 Titanium 4 door


Summary

We wanted a car that was reliable, easy to park, fast enough to overtake when needed and with a bit of gadgetry and this fit the bill perfectly!

Practicality and Comfort

Voice control was fairly new in 2009 and considering this wasn't an expensive car, being able to make calls (i.e. "Call Mum"), change the radio channel, change the climate control etc via voice was very novel and appreciated and we still like it today!

Comfortable seats and enough room for five. Handbrake feels very plastic.No issues

Performance and Handling

We were glad we went for the 1.6, since when we test drove the 1.2 it didn't have any heart.

Would I recommend it? YES
