The Ford Fiesta remains the UK’s bestselling car and has been a staple on roads for over four decades but how did this hatchback become our favourite Ford? When first produced in 1972 the Fiesta was Ford’s first supermini and their smallest car ever and since has seen major re-designs, upgrades, and multiple variations. The practicality, design and variety of options have attracted a loyal fanbase and a strong following of dedicated owners.
The all-new Ford Fiesta is set to be the most ambitious yet with various specifications to suit every driver’s needs from the Zetec to the premium Vignale. We provide a glimpse of where it all began and how the Fiesta became king of the road.
With the change in the global car market, Ford saw a gap to introduce a small, reliable model to drivers. The MK1 was born and quickly became a success, with over a million being sold by 1980! A range of specifications were introduced from the Spartan Base, Popular, Ghia and Supersport.
Although the second generation wasn’t radically different when it came to looks, the first diesel engine was offered. The MK2 also gave birth to a multitude of special editions from Finesse, Festival, Bonus, Olympus Sport… the list goes on. There was no doubt that Ford made sure there was a MK2 to suit your needs.
Bigger and better, the third generation model also offered a five door version. Two millions were sold in just the first two years including many of the special editions; Quartz, Azura, Sapphire…
Britain’s bestselling car from 1996 – 1998 was heavily revised with a new range of Zetec engines. Not to mention the colour variations!
Taking styling advice from the Focus the MK5 was actually a MK4 with a facelift. Fresher and more stylish, the MK5 also introduced the Zetec-S with an impressive bodykit, 101 bhp and a firm chassis.
Another best-seller the MK6 was marketed as a ‘world car’, going on sale in Japan, India & Australia. ABS and airbags were standard whilst hot hatch fanatics were treated to the new Zetec-S and a ST model.
Known for its reputation as one of the best front wheel drive cars, the current Fiesta offers a whole array of features. From keyless entry and power steering to the stylish grille, the budget hatchback has upped its game, whilst remaining formidable.
The MK7 received a facelift in 2012 and came equipped with new technology including Ford’s MYKey technology. The facelift also became the first Fiesta to have a three cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine. The upgrade also served Ford well as in 2014 the Fiesta became the best-selling vehicle ever in the UK with over 4 million registrations.
The all-new Fiesta is available in a variety of models to suit your lifestyle. Whether you are opting for the standard entry, a sportier ST-Line or the ultimate in luxury the Fiesta Vignale, there is a model to suit your needs.
