Ford Fiesta named Used Car of the Year by CAP

The Ford Fiesta has been something of a revelation since first rolling onto forecourts back in 1976, selling over 12 million units across the world. Now in it's sixth generation, the subcompact model has continued to be showered with awards, with the most recent boosting its credibility among the used cars for sale market.

Although it's currently the best selling new car in Britain, it has also been voted as the Used Car of the Year by CAP, the independent vehicle information specialists. Identifying the qualities of a used car and one that offers an affordable ownership experience, the Ford Fiesta finished on top spot on the podium.

With its incredible affordability, reputation and popularity, it proved to be a simple decision for CAP. These are just some of the reasons why the Fiesta sits at the top of most people's shopping lists. The Fiesta received a wealth of popular comments from the CAP experts, lauded for pushing the boundaries for quality and reliability in the Supermini sector while also being described as a car which defies the variation in the consumer tastes. The judging panel rounded off their verdict by declaring it as 'the perfect used car choice for motorists and used car dealers'.

The reputation of the Fiesta will continue to be upheld with the updated models which are set to appear on forecourts from next month (January 2013); the new versions will boast incredible emissions figures as well as a range of safety features including Active City Stop, SYNC with Emergency Assistance and MyKey.

Being given such glowing reviews, it is clear that the Ford Fiesta is certainly a force to be reckoned with in the used car market. If you are interested in discovering why the vehicle is held in such high regard, why not contact Ford car dealers today?
