Awards Fiesta for Ford
The Ford Fiesta begins 2014 not only as the nation's favourite car but also a double What Car? Awards winner.
Fiesta is Britain's 2014 Best Small Car and Best Hot Hatch according to What Car? reflecting consumer sales in the UK, where it also retained its number one position.
Chas Hallett, What Car? editor-in-chief, said: "No other car in this class can beat the Fiesta's excellent ride and handling. The Fiesta ST is a total and utter triumph."
It is also second year in a row that Ford has topped the Hot Hatch category - 2013's winner was the 250PS Focus ST.
