Fiesta is best supermini for fifth time

Auto Express has made the Ford Fiesta number one in the "Best Supermini" category in its 2014 awards - an
honour the UK's best-selling new car has won five times in the past six years.

The Ford Fiesta's domination of the Auto Express "Best Supermini" category in recent years mirrors its UK sales performance. More than 70,000 have found homes already this year, almost double the number of its nearest rival. The Fiesta is the UK's best-selling car of 2014, with the Ford Focus second.

Steve Fowler said: "The Fiesta still sits at the top of the sales charts and at the top of our awards as Best Supermini. Its brilliant blend of stylish looks, impressive efficiency, affordable costs, space and quality are probably enough. But being so good to
drive really puts it head and shoulders above rivals."

The Fiesta ST was also commended in the Hot Hatch category.
