From The Sunday Times
August 31, 2008
On the first count, it seems we have nothing to worry about. The Fiesta is
as cute as can be, from its rising waistline to its falling roofline, from the

many daisies. 9 out of 20

best-seller. And that’s fine, but we’ve a sneaking suspicion you might be missing out on the sweet-spot in the Fiesta range. The best news is that it’ll actually cost
you less too, both to buy and to run. Because we’re talking about the smallest
engine in the range: the 1.25.
