The Ford Fiesta was successfully launched in 1976. At the time of its inauguration Ford Motors believed they were onto a winner. The name Fiesta means to mark an event by a festivity or celebration. It was the big give away as to how confident Ford Motors were during those early years into making it a real success.

Fiesta is actually a Spanish word and means party time, celebration or can even be referred to as a religious festival.

Since the Ford Fiesta's arrival, it has definitely created a stir among motorists. Each year, Ford introduces more interesting components to this model, which is probably why the Fiesta increases in popularity year after year.

The Iconic Ford Fiesta

The Fiesta is a winner; it is a very well known car around the world. It is affordable, economical to run, and certain model types can really looks stunning. For those motorists who have bought the Fiesta or are considering purchasing one, it has never lost its flavour, or favour with the public.

The Ford Fiesta is a legendary icon. Over fifteen million have been sold since it was introduced nearly four decades ago.

The Fiesta's main competition is the Supermini. Ford definitely needs to be concerned if they want to carry on winning the public's favour. Ford continuously strives to upgrade the Fiesta to make it more appealing than its competitors.

The Ford Fiesta underwent radical design changes in 2008. The new look made the legendary car sleek, well defined, modern, curvy and smooth. It looked nothing like its previous boxy, sharp appearance. This new look brought in a younger audience.

The Ford Fiesta 2013 has an even more refreshing design. The light clusters, headlights, front and rear bumpers, cabin, dashboard, colour scheme, centre console, entertainment, technology and interior gadgets have all been upgraded.

Ford Fiesta hands on performance

As you can see by this picture of our latest company car, we love the Ford Fiesta here at Breakeryard. This particular model came without a spare wheel, so we installed an LPG system into the spare wheel space to help maximise fuel performance. This has proven to be a very worth while exercise saving lots of money on the fuel bill.

There are actually six choices if you decided to buy the Ford Fiesta, and prices can rise up to £13,195. The options available are six hatchbacks of which are 3 x 3 doors and 3 x 5 doors. The performance and engine statistics are as follows:

• A three door hatchback with a 1.25L petrol engine and a manual transmission. Power is 60PS, CO2 emissions are 120 g/km and fuel economy is 54.3 mpg.
