    By 9 September 2013

    Driving isn't what it used to be. It's far more technological and way cooler. Ford has further reinforced this with its update to Sync with AppLink - which enables drivers to voice-control various apps, including TomTom navigation and - and...

    Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost review

    By 10 April 2013

    There's a saying that goes "There's no replacement for displacement". It is, unsurprisingly, used mainly in America, where car engines verge on the larger capacity. It's not uncommon in the US to be driving around strapped to a 5-litre engine. That's...

    Ford Fiesta 1.5 TDCi review

    By 19 March 2013

    Let's make one thing very clear, the Fiesta is probably not the car you think. When Pocket-lint was a young, newly qualified driver, the Ford range was a lot simpler. It went, Fiesta, Escort, Sierra and then Granada. The progression was from basic in...

    2014 Ford Fiesta ST pictures and eyes-on

    By 9 January 2013

    Ford announced the Fiesta ST at the LA Auto Show in November and since then we have been desperate to get a look at the hot hatch. The bright orange bad boy was lurking at Ford's Sync stand at CES. We didn't manage to sit inside it unfortunately, but...

    Ford Mondeo (2013) pictures and hands-on

    By 28 September 2012

    Remember once upon a time when the Ford Mondeo was Britain’s best-selling car, or at least thereabouts? Well, now it doesn’t even make it into the top ten. Tellingly, the BMW 3-Series outsells it. Ford would like to change that and here in Paris it’s...

    Ford Focus Zetec S 1.0 Ecoboost review

    By 5 September 2012

    "Go on" we asked, "guess how big the engine is" we continued with an annoyingly knowing grin on our face that probably gave the game away. "I don't know came the answer, 1.6-litre?". "HAHA, NO! A million times NO!" we roared back. And then, with joy in...

    By 23 September 2011

    Let's get one thing straight: this isn't the new Capri, and if you mention that word to anyone at Ford... well, let's just say we warned you. The front face of the Evos is the new Mondeo according to Ford's design team, however. And looking at it, you'd...
