REVIEW: all-new and nifty Ford Fiesta


I had the pleasure of experiencing the new Ford Fiesta Titanium Magnetic for a weekend. What an amazing drive! Not only is it gorgeous, sassy and stylish, the interior is what really blew me away!  Between the blue interior lights that lit up at night, and the fact that I didn’t have to struggle with glaring lights from other drivers in my rear-view mirror, I’m not sure which feature stole my heart.  Ford thought of everything when manufacturing this ride.

The Ford Fiesta has the latest technology, with entertainment controls on the 6.5-inch touchscreen that has Bluetooth, navigation and reverse parking assist. You can also give it instructions like ‘Call Thato’ or ‘Play Drive by Black coffee & David Guetta’ and it’ll do as told, if it’s connected to your phone. Yep, you heard right! This feature comes fitted as standard on the Trend models.

There is nothing complicated about their system – it’s a smart car that’ll save you time because you don’t have to figure out what any button does, which I really appreciated.

A smooth and easy drive, this car has state-of-the-art technology and elegant design for a good price. Installments start from R4 999 per month.

The only downside for me is that it’s not quite fuel-efficient. I had the car for three days and only drove it on Friday, when I got it, and again on Sunday to the Idols SA live performances in Pretoria. For me, a full tank shouldn’t reach the halfway mark after driving for just three days.

If you don’t have issues with filling up often, then the Ford Fiesta is perfect.

Rating: 4/5
