New Ford Fiesta

Took one out this morning on test drive 1.25L pertol engine, 5 door.

Mechanics:
Clutch was nice and light, biting at the bottom as it's new, gears were easy to change. Steering, light as a feather, similar lock to the present one. Brakes were a bit woolly for me, pedal went down too far before it began to slow. Despite it being a small engine, it pulled like a train, 70 on a DC and still plenty of go in it.

Interior:
"Transformers, robots in disguise!" Yes the dash does look like Optimus Prime! No temp gauge on this model, don't know what trim it was. Trip, odometer were a bit small. Good vision front & sides, mirrors nice and big, however rear vision for reversing was limited, no big pillar but the body slopes upward, the quarterlight is small from inside, some may have issues there.

Ride:
When I tested the Leon I booted it and the salesman looked happy, in this I didn't so in respect of the speeds I did, very comfortable, no roll and responsive.

Conclusion: I liked it!  big_smile big_smile big_smile big_smile

However, as it's based on a Mazda 2, could you get a better deal from them? Ford don't do Instructor packages as far as the salesman knew, so haggle away!

Re: New Ford Fiesta

Drove the 1.4 petrol this morning.

Nice ride, good clutch, bit notchy on the gearchange, very light steering due to new model have electric PAS like the Corsa.

Nice interior, good switchgear, vastly superior to Corsa.

A bit flat on acceleration though.

No special deals for instructors and the car has no spare, only an inflation kit.

Rear quarter vision just as bad as the Corsa, but 'A' pillars are a little thinner os slightly better to front.
