The Ford Fiesta is Britain’s most popular new car, so you won’t be short of options when searching for a used example. Tens of millions have been sold since the UK launch of the original Fiesta in 1977, with the supermini overtaking the Escort in 2014 to become the country’s best-selling car.

Back in 1976, when the first Fiesta rolled off the production line in Valencia, the little Ford was an unassuming three-door hatchback, but it wasn’t long before it became part of the furniture in the UK. Today, you can get three-door and five-door versions, along with a rugged Active model, a luxury Vignale and a sporty ST.

Here, we’re focusing on the three-door Fiesta, most notably the sixth-generation (2008-2017) and the current model (on sale since 2017). Even when faced with an array of supermini rivals, such as the Vauxhall Corsa, Renault Clio, Peugeot 208, Mazda 2 and Toyota Yaris, the Fiesta still ticks nearly all of the boxes for many drivers.

It’s great to drive, comes with a large range of efficient engines, many different trim levels and plenty of equipment as standard. The latest model, introduced in 2017, is even more desirable, with a noticeable upshift in quality but with the same fun-to-drive characteristics. But don’t rule out an older Fiesta, because the previous generation model still represents excellent value for money.

Ford axed the frugal diesel engine in 2020 due to slow sales, but the 1.5 TDCi is a great choice if you cover lots of motorway miles, as it should use less fuel with this type of driving than the petrol alternatives. For everyone else, we’d recommend one of the petrol engines, especially the 1.0-litre EcoBoost versions, which offer a terrific blend of fuel economy and punchy performance.

Opt for the high-performance Ford Fiesta ST, available in ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3 trims, and you’ll have one of the greatest hot hatchbacks of the modern era. In the sixth-generation car, power comes from a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, while the current ST features a 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged unit, which makes a satisfyingly sporty thrum when worked hard. Either way, the Fiesta ST is as much fun to drive as considerably more expensive sports cars.

Whether you’re looking to spend as little as possible on a used three-door Ford Fiesta or you want to bag a great discount on a nearly new car, BuyaCar has hundreds of deals to choose from. Read on to discover some of the best models available now.

Best three-door Ford Fiesta models

Ford Fiesta Style

Whether you’re buying a late sixth-generation or an early seventh-generation three-door Ford Fiesta, the Style is the entry-level model. Today, the Style trim has been axed, with the Trend model taking on that role, albeit with more equipment as standard.

The specification is broadly similar, regardless of the generation. Highlights include 15-inch steel wheels with covers, manual air-conditioning, electric front windows, halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights and electric and heated door mirrors.

One reason for choosing the newer Fiesta could be the audio system. While the earlier car gets a radio/CD player with six speakers and a USB port, the later Fiesta features a Ford FM/AM radio with a 4.2-inch screen and Bluetooth connectivity. You also get automatic headlights, lane-keeping assist and emergency assistance in the event of a crash.

Ford Fiesta Trend

Trend is the new entry-level three-door Ford Fiesta, but there’s nothing entry-level about the specification. This explains why the cheapest new Fiesta is now more expensive than before - you’re getting more for your money. Put simply, the Trend is more desirable than the Style.

Highlights include alloy wheels, front fog lights with cornering function, rear privacy glass, LED daytime running lights and the excellent Quickclear heated front windscreen, which is fantastic on a damp or frosty morning.

Inside, you get remote central locking, manual air-conditioning, lane-keeping assist, automatic headlights, tyre pressure monitoring system and Ford SYNC eight-inch touchscreen media system with digital radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports and six speakers.

Ford Fiesta Zetec

The Zetec trim was essentially the Trend in all but name. It’s no longer available to buy new, but if you fancy a Fiesta Trend and want to save some money, it’s worth looking at the stylish Fiesta Zetec.

Highlights of the seventh-generation Fiesta Zetec include 15-inch alloy wheels, Quickclear heated windscreen, leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls and Ford SYNC 6.5-inch touchscreen media system with a digital radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The sixth-generation Fiesta Zetec has all of the above with the exception of the audio system. Its Ford SYNC 4.2-inch TFT screen looks and feels a little dated by modern standards, so this could be a good reason to choose a later model.

Ford Fiesta Zetec S

Fiesta Zetec S Dash

Because it’s available only as a three-door and fitted with sports suspension, the Fiesta Zetec S is ideal for young drivers who fancy a Fiesta ST but can’t afford the insurance premium. There are two engines available: 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol and a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel.

It certainly looks the part, thanks to its large 17-inch alloy wheels, full bodykit, front fog lights with sports bezel, rear spoiler and LED signature rear lights. Inside, you get everything that’s standard on the Zetec, plus sports front seats and sports pedals. The Zetec S was one of the gems of the three-door Ford Fiesta range, so it’s a shame it was dropped for the latest model.

Ford Fiesta Titanium

The Titanium trim trades the sporty flavour of the Zetec/Zetec S for some extra goodies. Highlights of the sixth-generation model include 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, electric folding door mirrors with puddle lights, rear privacy glass and LED signature rear lights.

Inside, the Titanium gets a Sony audio system with digital radio, CD player and eight speakers, cruise control, automatic climate control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, driver seat lumbar support, an armrest in the centre console and front and rear floor mats.

The specification is even better on the current (2017-) model. The Sony system is upgraded to a Ford SYNC 3 touchscreen media system with sat-nav, and you also get automatic high beam, traffic sign recognition and driver alert.

Ford Fiesta Titanium X

If you’re looking at a sixth-generation three-door Ford Fiesta, the Titanium X is as plush as things get. Highlights include partial leather upholstery, heated seats, keyless entry and start, stainless steel tread plates, rear parking sensors, a reversing camera and 16-inch 12-spoke alloy wheels.

You’re out of luck if you fancy a new three-door Ford Fiesta in Titanium X trim, because it’s now available only as a five-door. Fear not, because the seventh-generation Fiesta launched with a three-door Titanium X, so you can find a few on BuyaCar. Highlights include a B&O Play audio system, reversing camera and heated partial leather seats.

Ford Fiesta ST-Line

The ST-Line is designed for people who like the look of the Ford Fiesta ST but don’t require the performance or the more expensive insurance. To the casual observer, it looks like the ST hot hatchback, while the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine and sports suspension combine to ensure it’s also great to drive.

The package also includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, ST-Line fog lights and wing badges, ST-Line upper grille, bumpers and side skirts, chrome exhaust, sports front seats, leather-trimmed flat-bottomed steering wheel, ST-Line aluminium tread plates and keyless start.

Ford Fiesta ST-Line X

The ST-Line X adds more luxury to the ST-Line package. Features additional to the ST-Line include LED signature rear lights, automatic high beam and cruise control, automatic wipers, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, electric folding door mirrors with puddle lights, partial leather sports seats and automatic climate control.

The Ford SYNC 3 eight-inch touchscreen media system with sat-nav is a welcome upgrade on the ST-Line X.

Ford Fiesta ST-2

Few people bought the entry-level Fiesta ST-1, so you’ll struggle to find used models for sale. It came as no surprise when Ford axed the ST-1 from the range, as most drivers opted for the better equipped ST-2 and ST-3 versions.

All Fiesta ST models get the same suspension and engine (a 1.6-litre or 1.5-litre petrol engine, depending on the generation), so it all comes down to the level of kit. Highlights of the sixth-generation ST-2 include 17-inch alloy wheels, half-leather Recaro seats, a full bodykit, Sony radio with 4.2-inch TFT display and manual air-conditioning.

Buying a seventh-generation ST-2 gets you even more for your money. The package includes selectable driving modes (Normal, Sport and Track), Recaro heated sports seats, Ford SYNC 3 with an eight-inch touchscreen media system and B&O audio system.

Ford Fiesta ST-3

Upgrading to the ST-3 cost around £1,000 on the sixth-generation Fiesta ST when new, but added automatic climate control, automatic lights and wipers, keyless entry, electric folding door mirrors and sat-nav to the mix.

On the current Fiesta ST-3, you get 18-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers, Recaro leather sports seats, electric folding door mirrors with puddle lights, Ford SYNC 3 with sat-nav, automatic lights and wipers, traffic sign recognition, keyless entry and start, a reversing camera with rear parking sensors, heated front seats, heated steering wheel and rear privacy glass.
