When it comes to small city cars, the Ford Fiesta is a popular site in many parts of the world. In countries such as the UK, it is by far the best-selling vehicle on the road today.
Nowadays, many competing models give the Fiesta a run for its money. But, if you need a city car, why should you choose that car over ones produced by competing marques?
It’s cheap to buy
OK, so it’s not the cheapest new vehicle you could ever buy. It’s little brother, the Ka, is perhaps the cheapest in the Ford lineup. But, for the class of vehicle it is in, the Fiesta is an affordable car to buy.
Of course, some folks prefer to buy used models instead of new ones for even more cost savings. Even on the secondhand car market, the Ford Fiesta is still an attractive model.
It’s cheap to maintain
Another selling point of the little Ford Fiesta is the low maintenance costs. Today’s latest models get powered by robust, eco-friendly engines. They seldom have expensive issues, and so the total cost of ownership is low for buyers.
Even a service at a Ford dealership is low in comparison to dealer servicing for competing models. Ford tyres are also cheap to get, as are the brakes and suspension components.
The Ford Fiesta is a stylish, modern car
Let’s face it; price isn’t the only reason we all buy a car. Most of us enjoy sitting behind the wheel of a stylish and attractive vehicle. After all; the cars we drive are an extension of our personalities!
It’s no secret that many Ford Fiesta owners buy their cars because they look good. You might not think it, but the car you drive says a lot about your personality. If you don’t want people to think you are boring, you need a Fiesta in your life!
It’s a brilliant car to use for learning to drive
If you’ve not yet got your driving licence, you’ll need to practice in a car that is comfortable to drive. That’s the main reason many new drivers prefer to sit behind the wheel of a Ford Fiesta.

The vehicle is easy to manoeuvre, even in the tightest of parking spaces. Inside, the windows offer plenty of visibility. There are minimal blind spots in the car, so one can see other road users with ease.
Plus, the Ford Fiesta is also one of the safest cars you will ever use when learning to drive. In fact, so much so that new drivers opt for Fiestas after they pass their tests!
Insurance and tax costs are low
If you need some more reasons to buy a Ford Fiesta, how about low insurance and tax costs? We all know that motoring costs rise each year, especially when it comes to insurance and tax.
One of the Fiesta’s unique selling points is how little it costs to insure and tax! Even if you’re a motorist on a tight budget, you’ll still have plenty of change left over with the Fiesta.
