The Ford Fiesta was launched in the UK in 1976 - and since, has become one of the most seen, and most well-known cars on the road.

More new Fiestas are registered than any other car in the UK, which means there are literally thousands of models at your fingertips on the second-hand market.

Nearly-new cars typically have fewer than 20 miles on them - and good-condition mid-range models start at less than £99 a month. There are even sporting choices, courtesy of ST models.

Used Ford Fiesta (2008-2017) deals

In production for more than a decade, the previous-generation Ford Fiesta was, remarkably, still one of the best cars to drive when it ended production last year. Its lively range of petrol engines deliver powerful acceleration and reasonable fuel economy; it rolls smoothly over rough roads for a car of its size, and it darts nimbly through corners, directed by responsive and accurate steering.

This all makes it a fun car to drive, even when nipping through town, so you’re more likely to overlook its small boot (fine for a weekly shop, less so if you also have a bulky buggy), restricted rear legroom and dated interior, which looks cluttered and complicated when compared with the touchscreen dashboards of modern rivals.

You can pick up a 2014 Fiesta for just under £6,000, or between £95 to £100 with a representative finance arrangement. Most Fiestas, apart from entry-level Studio cars, come with air conditioning.

The most popular option is a Zetec model, which has alloy wheels, heated windscreen and Bluetooth for connecting your phone wirelessly. The 1-litre Ecoboost engine with 100 horsepower offers an ideal combination of performance and fuel economy, and is increasingly affordable: there there are plenty of Fiesta 1.0 Zetec models to choose from, costing less than £7,000, or around £115 a month with representative finance.

Used Ford Fiesta (2017-present) deals

The latest Ford Fiesta has had a mild redesign, but the major changes are saved for the interior where both boot space and rear legroom now roughly match its major rivals, including the Vauxhall Corsa, Seat Ibiza and Nissan Micra.

All but entry-level Style cars come with a touchscreen, which brings the Fiesta up to date, and there are plenty of options to choose, including a top-of-the-range Vignale model with luxurious touches, such as leather seats; a taller Active version, offering a higher driving position; and sportier ST-Line cars, which react more sharply when you steer, making the car feel nimbler.

The whole range remains as fun to drive as the previous-generation, but is still comparatively expensive, as the oldest cars are only a few months old. Prices start at just under £12,000, but these will drop further into this year, as more cars become available.

The design changes at the front aren't always obvious, so the best way of separating the current model from the older one is to look at the rear lights. If they are triangular and either side of the back screen, then you're looking at the previous-generation car. Horizontal ligths underneath the back screen indicate the latest car.


Best used Ford Fiesta deal for fuel economy

Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost

Ignore the impressive official fuel economy figures and the Fiesta’s real-world performance of 45mpg isn’t bad for a petrol-powered supermini. Titanium cars have cruise control too, helping you to make smooth and economical progress on longer journeys. Diesel engines are 5mpg more efficient but far less smooth and quiet.


Best used Ford Fiesta deal for value

Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.25

If you're on a limited budget, then you can make the most of your money by opting for the entry-level 1.25-litre petrol engine. It’s not as efficient or powerful as the 1-litre engines, but you won’t have to dawdle - rev the engine and you’ll accelerate at a reasonable rate. Well-equipped Zetec cars (above) don't cost much more than basic models.


Best used Ford Fiesta deals for young drivers

Ford Fiesta Style 1.25

Low specification and low power means that the Ford Fiesta Style is in Insurance Group 5, helping to lower the cost of your premiums. It still has has air conditioning, but you’ll have to make do without alloy wheels or the heated windscreen.

If you have a couple of years of driving experience, then you could be interested in the Fiesta Zetec S Red or Black Edition, which has the sporty design additions of the Fiesta ST hot hatch, but without quite as much power. It's more expensive to insure than the Style version, but less than the full ST.


Best used Ford Fiesta deals for families

Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.0 EcoBoost

The ideal blend of power, performance and price the Zetec 1.0 EcoBoost Fiesta is the version of choice for thousands of families. The latest car does have more space, especially in the boot, but plenty of families manage with the earlier Fiesta, which is much cheaper.


Best used Ford Fiesta deal for performance

Ford Fiesta ST-2

The Fiesta ST-Line and Fiesta Zetec S are fast and fun to drive, but can’t match the thrills of the Fiesta ST (above), which has acceleration and grip that's in a different league to the rest of the range. If you want the biggest grin while zipping around at legal speeds, then this is the Fiesta for you.

Best used Ford Fiesta deal for gadgets

Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost

For gadgets, you’ll need the latest model. For the moment - until higher-specification cars become more common - your best bet is the Titanium version, which is fitted with an 8in touchscreen as standard; 1.5in larger than lesser models. Climate control, automatic windscreen wipers, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included. Current prices start at under £14,500.
