Ford Fiesta (2017) review: The little car that's a very big deal

By

The Ford Fiesta has been the best selling car in the UK for eight years straight. That's a long time to hold the top spot and a lot of pressure for an all-new model to have on its pillars. So the question is, how does Ford make Britain's favourite... >>

Ford Mustang GT Convertible review: Big, brutal, and now British

By

When you're brought up on a diet of The Dukes of Hazzard and Starsky & Hutch, you can't help but feel that, perhaps, the Ford Capri left us a little short on muscle in the UK. Sure, the Capri was, and still is, an iconic car, but you could only gaze at... >>

Ford Edge review: Big but facing bitter rivals

By

Believe it or not there has been a hole in Ford's line-up in Europe over the past few years, especially in the UK. That hole is large SUV sized: the Kuga has sat in the small, sporty, pumped up hatch sector, but for larger cars, Ford's go-to option was... >>

Ford S-Max first drive: Redefining MPVs

By

Competing against the ever-popular SUV in the kids'n'dog category is the MPV. It's a much derided class of car; where SUVs have "sport" in the name - suggesting athleticism and virility - MPVs carry the stigma of being the end of the motoring line. It's... >>

Ford Fiesta 1.5 TDCi
