The Ford Fiesta, the UK’s biggest-selling car, has been voted ‘Best Small Car’ in the 2013 CarBuyer Car of the Year awards.
The Fiesta has been the UK’s best-selling car for the last four years, first taking sales leadership from the Ford Focus in 2009. With the latest Fiesta model launched to massive critical acclaim, this new model is looking to build further on the Fiesta’s sales success.
Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief at Auto Express and CarBuyer, said, “The Fiesta is a brilliant car that’s just been made even better – adding the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine into the mix has given it an intoxicating spirit that you just don’t expect from a small, affordable car. It’s an exceptional all-rounder.”
CarBuyer.co.uk is the sister site of best-selling motoring weekly Auto Express, who wrote in their road test of the Ford Fiesta that, “The Fiesta is a great all-rounder – and one of the best Fords ever...combining stylish good looks with a driving experience that simply isn’t bettered in the supermini class.”
Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain managing director, said, “The Ford Fiesta is a proven sales success with great appeal to both business and private buyers. This award from the experts at CarBuyer is a welcome endorsement of the Fiesta’s market-leading attributes.”
