It's great that buyers looking for a Ford Fiesta AUTOMATIC can have it with this brilliant 1.6 Litre engine, because it really is the pick of the range.
This is a convincing auto supermini – especially as it retains the rest of the Fiesta’s talents. It has a grown-up character for such a small car, with a comfortable ride and isolated interior.
Our car looks particularly impressive finished in Frozen White with a complimenting Charcoal Black Cloth Upholstery, it has covered just 32,000 Miles, comes with a Full Service History and was previously supplied by ourselves.
Power comes courtesy of Ford's award winning 1.6 Litre, 105 BHP Petrol engine which is mated to the brilliant 6 Speed 'Powershift' Automatic Transmission, economy is also cracking with this car returning an impressive 47.9 MPG (ECC).
In terms of performance, the engine feels as well suited to this car as ever. It’s quiet and smooth, but has enough low-down torque that you’re never caught out when trying to nip into a gap. Officially, this Fiesta will cover 0-62mph in 13.3 seconds, which is exactly the same as for the manual model, and, during our drive, not once did we think it felt slow.
If you want to have fun, it boasts really responsive steering and sharp handling, something that is found across the Fiesta range.
Additional features on this nicely appointed 'Zetec' include * Ford SYNC Bluetooth Connection with Voice Control and USB Port, * 15" 5x2 Spoke Alloy Wheels, * Front Fog Lights, * Quickclear Heated Windscreen, * 3 Spoke Leather Steering Wheel, * Rake/Reach Adjustable Steering Wheel, * Front Passenger Airbag Deactivation, * ESP & Traction Control.
So, Ford's cracking 1.6 Litre engine paired up with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox in our favourite supermini – sounds like a winning combination to us.
