The seventh generation Ford Fiesta gets a much more appealing petrol engine, a 1.1-litre Ti-VCT unit, which slots in at the foot of its range. Jonathan Crouch takes a look.
This seventh generation Fiesta has grown up a bit, but it hasn't lost the youthful, eager feel that endeared previous generation models to so many supermini buyers. Beneath the smarter styling lies some clever user-friendly technology - and cabin quality that'll make down-sizing into one of these less of a chore. It also features a much more competitive entry-level petrol engine, a three cylinder 1.1-litre Ti-VCT unit.
What's been the world's most significant car in the last half a century? This is our nomination, Ford's Fiesta, rejuvenated here in MK7 model guise for a fresh generation of buyers. Believe or not, the bodywork's completely new; so is the suspension - and as a result, the driving dynamics are promised to be even better than ever. There's a brand new interior fashioned with much higher quality. And buyers will benefit from a fresh era of media connectivity and camera-driven safety technology. One of the most important changes over the previous model though, was the ditching of that old car's thirsty, inefficient four cylinder 1.25-litre petrol engine. In the place of that powerplant, entry-level buyers now get the three cylinder 1.1-litre Ti-VCT unit we're going to look at here, offered in either 70 or 85PS guises.
Variations on the Fiesta theme may come and go, but before driving any version of Ford's definitive supermini, there's one thing you almost always tend to know for certain: that it'll be a great steer. This time round, the Blue Oval brand has sought to retain that traditional Fiesta attribute, yet at the same time, introduce a standard of ride quality closer to that delivered by arch-rivals like Volkwagen's Polo. Out on the road, in some ways, this car isn't quite the sharp, eager thing we remembered from before, but it can still offer a level of handling joie de vivre that's beyond anything its competitors can manage. That's thanks to improved steering, a lightweight body that's now usefully stiffer and an effective torque vectoring system that helps you get the grip down in the corners. Engine-wise, all the volume petrol units are now three cylinder in configuration, the line-up propped up by the new 1.1-litre Ti-VCT powerplant we're looking at here, available with either 70 or 85PS. This engine borrows from much of the brand's EcoBoost technology and has been mated to a manual gearbox that we're told has been freshly-developed for it, despite the fact that it soldiers on with only five speeds. The base 70PS 1.1 Ti-VCT variant manages 62mph from rest in 14.9s en route to 99mph, while the 85PS version improves those figures to 14s and 105mph. It is a bit disappointing though, that with this engine, Ford hasn't fitted the rear disc brakes you get in most other models.
Though this seventh generation Fiesta might look much the same, dimensionally it's actually quite a fundamentally altered product, 70mm longer, 13mm wider and 20mm lower than before, plus virtually every constituent part of the car is different. You can see though, why the brand wanted the look and feel of this supermini to stay much the same. The company's European Design Director Joel Piaskowski says he wanted to evolve the styling in a way that would make it more contemporary without losing the essential 'Fiesta-ness' that customers love. That's what's been delivered. Inside, the cabin's much classier. There are flush, seamless surfaces, soft-touch plastic coatings and neat splashes of chrome, plus it all seems to have been very well screwed together by the factory in Cologne. Other than that, the first thing you'll probably notice is the infotainment system that now sprouts in free-standing form from the top of the centre console. The screen options vary depending on the model or options you choose - there are 4.2, 6.5 or, as in this case, 8.0-inch sizes, all featuring pin-sharp graphics, logical menus and fast processor speeds. In the rear, there's 16mm more knee room than there was before, plus the seats are softer and offer greater side-to-side support. The extra body length has allowed the cargo area to be 17-litres larger than it was before, now rated at 292-litres for both three and five-door bodyshapes.
Prices for the base 1.1-litre Ti-VCT petrol unit variants stat at around £13,000 and there's a choice of 70 or 85PS variants. Equipment levels are very reasonable this time round. Even with base 'Style' trim, you get air conditioning, Bluetooth with the 'My Ford Device Dock' for your smartphone handset and an 'Emergency Assistance' system that'll automatically summon help should the airbags go off. Other standard features include a 6-speaker audio system, a trip computer, driver's seat height adjustment, daytime running lights, auto headlamps, a speed limiter and a pretty complete package of safety features that we'll over later. Plus there's the Ford 'My Key' system that lets you set certain functions that can be restricted with the spare individual keyfob provided, so for instance, the volume of the stereo or the maximum speed can be limited for younger drivers. As a parent, that feature alone would really sell this car to me. Let's consider this Fiesta's safety credentials. Ford says that the B-pillar and the doors have been re-designed to provide better side-impact protection this time round and every variant is fitted with seven airbags - twin front, side and curtain 'bags, plus one for the driver's knees. For highway safety, all variants get two features you wouldn't expect to see fitted right across the range on a supermini: there's a 'Lane Keeping Alert' system that warns you if you veer out of lane and a 'Lane Keeping Aid' that will automatically steer you gently back to where you should be.
One of Ford's priorities this time round was to get the Fiesta's efficiency showing up to scratch right across the range. In the previous generation line-up, the figures you got from the 1.0T EcoBoost turbo petrol three cylinder powerplant and the TDCi diesel units were exemplary - but these were comparatively pricey engine options. In contrast, the returns delivered by the old-fashioned 1.25-litre petrol unit that budget-minded customers often found themselves stuck with at the bottom of the range were terrible. In this day and age, a supermini unable to crack 55mpg on the combined cycle and putting out more than 120g/km of CO2 has an efficiency problem: Ford had to sort it. They have. The normally aspirated entry-level 1.1-litre Ti-VCT three cylinder powerplant we've been looking at here shares much of the technology of the pokier EcoBoost turbo units including, crucially, their engine stop/start systems. As a result, the figures you get are very sensible by class standards, though still not quite as impressive as those of the petrol turbo models. This base engine comes in either 70 or 85PS guises and either way, delivers 64.2mpg on the combined cycle and 101g/km of CO2. Insurance for this 1.2-litre variant is pitched at group 2E for the 70PS derivative, while the 85PS version is group 5E.
The Ford Fiesta has always been a vehicle the British public has warmed to, but the truth is that before this seventh generation model arrived, supermini buyers chose this car either because it was great to drive or because they'd been offered a deal too good to turn down: there wasn't really another reason to buy one. This model changes all that, smarter to look at, smarter to sit in, smarter to operate and affordable to buy and run in this base 1.1-litre Ti-VCT guise. In short, this is, more than ever, a small car that supermini buyers simply can't ignore.

This seventh generation Fiesta grew up a bit but it didn't lose the youthful, eager feel that endeared previous generation models to so many supermini buyers. Beneath the smarter styling lies some clever user-friendly technology - and cabin quality that'll make down-sizing into one of these less of a chore. This is how you right a best seller. Let's check out early MK7 models as a used proposition.
[petrol] 1.1 Ti-VCT, 1.0 EcoBoost, 1.5 EcoBoost / [diesel] 1.5 TDCi
What's been the world's most significant car in the last half a century? This is our nomination, Ford's Fiesta, which in 2017 was rejuvenated in MK7 model guise for a fresh generation of buyers. The figures speak for themselves. This supermini was first launched back in 1976 and by 2017, over 17 million models had been sold, 4.5 million of them in the UK. Which is why, at the time of this MK7 model's launch, to keep up with demand, a Fiesta was rolling off the Cologne production line every 68 seconds. In this country, we bought more than a million examples of the previous MK6 model, which was launched in 2008, and by 2017, had been our market's best selling car for the last eight years. Forget 'Mondeo man'; we are, in short, a nation of 'Fiesta folk'. It's an astonishing success story, particularly given that prior to this seventh generation model's introduction, the only area in which Fiesta models had really excelled was in driving dynamics - usually one of the less important attributes for supermini buyers. You'd certainly have expected that if Ford were going to continue this sales dominance, at least in our market, greater efforts would be needed. Given that, it was somewhat surprising in 2017 to be presented with a seventh generation model that looked so similar to its predecessor. Don't be fooled. The Blue Oval brand changed virtually everything here - and we mean almost everything. Out of around 2,500 parts that are needed to create a Fiesta, only about 200 were carried over. The bodywork was completely new; so was the suspension - and as a result, the driving dynamics are even better than before. There was also a brand new interior fashioned with much higher quality. And buyers got a fresh era of media connectivity and camera-driven safety technology. There was also a much wider choice of derivatives than before, with hot hatches, a super-luxury 'Vignale' version and even a 'Fiesta Active' Crossover model in the mix. This was, in short, on paper at least, a thoroughly well thought out piece of supermini development. The MK7 Fiesta sold in this Form until 2020, when the range was updated with mild hybrid power. But it's the earlier 2017-2020-era models we look at here.
Everything changed here - but almost nothing was different. If you know anything about this car, then come face to face with it, that might be your first perspective on this seventh generation Fiesta's design - it was certainly ours. Ford certainly could have done something radically new; indeed, in many ways, they did. Dimensionally, after all, this was actually quite a fundamentally altered product, 70mm longer, 13mm wider and 20mm lower than the previous MK6 model, plus virtually every constituent part of the car was different. You can see though, why the brand wanted the look and feel of this supermini to stay much the same. The company's European Design Director Joel Piaskowski said he wanted to evolve the styling in a way that would make it more contemporary without losing the essential 'Fiesta-ness' that customers love. That's what was delivered. Cabin quality was what let down the previous model, with its cheap finishes and confusing button clutter. In contrast, with this MK7 model, there are flush, seamless surfaces, soft-touch plastic coatings and neat splashes of chrome, plus it was all very well screwed together by the factory in Cologne. Other than that, the first thing you'll probably notice is the infotainment system that sprouts in free-standing form from the top of the centre console. The screen options vary depending on the model or options you choose - there are 4.2, 6.5 or, as in the case of top variants, 8.0-inch sizes, all featuring pin-sharp graphics, logical menus and fast processor speeds. And in the rear? Well, if you come to this car fresh from ownership of the previous generation model, then it's likely that you'll view Ford's greater efforts in this part of the cabin in a positive light. There is, after all, 16mm more knee room than there was before, plus the seats are softer and offer greater side-to-side support. Should you be trying a Fiesta having sampled a more spacious supermini rival though - and there are plenty - you'll probably be a little less inclined to be quite so generous. Finally, the boot. That extra body length allowed the cargo area to be 17-litres larger than it was before, with this MK7 model rated at 292-litres for both bodyshapes. That figure is only average by class standards, but if you're able to flatten the 60:40 split-folding rear backrest, you'll free up one of the better total capacity figures in the class - 1,093-litres.
We'll base pricing on the 5-door body style that most customers choose. The 3-door body shape (only available with base trim or with the top ST model) saves you about £450. Pricing starts with the normally aspirated 1.1-litre Ti-VCT petrol engine, which, with a base 'Style''-spec model, will cost you from around £7,200 for an early .17-plate MK7 model, with values rising to around £8,800 for an '18-platye car, Add around £700 more for mid-range 'Zetec'' trim. You'll probably prefer a model with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbo petrol engine; prices start from around £8,600, which gets you a '17-plate 'Zetec'-spec model, prices then rising to around £10,100 for an '18-plate model. Add another £800 for mid-range 'Titanium' trim. The 1.5 TDCi diesel prices from around £8,000 in 90PS form, with base 'Style' trim on a '17-plate, with values rising to around £9,150 for a later '19-plate car. The Fiesta ST hot hatch prices from around £13,500 on a '17-plate with base 'ST-2' trim, with values rising to around £19,200 for a later '20-plate car; add around £900 for plusher 'ST-3' trim.
As usual with a supermini, check the interior for child damage. And with top-spec versions, check the alloy wheels for scratches. Look for any dents, dings and scratches to the panelwork. And ensure that the clutch engages smoothly and that the car goes into gear easily. The 1.5-litre diesel engine is fitted with a diesel particulate filter, but this may be clogged up if the previous owner hasn't completed too many highway journeys. There's one key product recall you need to know about. Some Fiestas built from 15 May 2019 to 17 June 2019 were fitted with steering columns that weren't up to specification. Cars affected had to have the whole column replaced to prevent potential future issues.
(approx based on a 2018 1.0 EcoBoost 100PS - Ex Vat) An oil filter is in the £7-£9 bracket. An air filter costs around £11. A pollen filter costs around £9-£23. A rear outer lamp costs around £60. A wiper blade is in the £3-£14 bracket. A rear brake discs cost in the £15 bracket. A front brake pad is in the £16-£40 brackets; rears are in the £16-£27 bracket. A radiator is around £180.
Variations on the Fiesta theme may come and go, but before driving any version of Ford's definitive supermini, there's one thing you almost always tend to know for certain: that it'll be a great steer. This time round, the Blue Oval brand has sought to retain that traditional Fiesta attribute, yet at the same time, introduce a standard of ride quality closer to that delivered by arch-rivals like Volkswagen's Polo. The feel you'll get from this Fiesta depends quite a lot on the variant of it you choose. That's because two quite different chassis configurations have been used across the range, with a firmer set-up used for the various sporty 'ST' models and a softer one featuring elsewhere in the range on the cars the majority of customers will end up with. On such mainstream versions, this car isn't quite the sharp, eager thing we remembered from before, but it can still offer a level of handling joie de vivre that's beyond anything its competitors can manage. That's thanks to improved steering, a lightweight body that's usefully stiffer in this MK7 model and an effective torque vectoring system that helps you get the grip down in the corners. The effect of all of this is dialled up to a useful degree if you opt for one of the sportier 'ST-Line' models, Fiesta variants that are more stiffly-sprung, yet which still enjoy most of the benefits of the suppler all-new suspension set-up that's responsible for a vast improvement in ride quality. Engine-wise, all the volume petrol units are three cylinder in configuration, the line-up propped up by a 1.1-litre Ti-VCT powerplant offered with either 70 or 85PS. Most customers stretch to the 1.0T turbocharged EcoBoost engine, available in either 100, 125 or 140PS guises. We'd recommend the volume 100PS derivative, which can be had with an auto gearbox option and in manual form, is capable of 65.7mpg on the combined cycle and 97g/km of CO2 (both NEDC figures). Elsewhere in the line-up, 1.5-litre engines dominate. There's a 200PS petrol unit in the ST hot hatch. And diesel buyers get 85PS and 120PS 1.5 TDCi options that focus on frugality and will be of particular interest to customers of the 'Active' Crossover derivative that widened the appeal of the range.
The Ford Fiesta has always been a vehicle the British public has warmed to, but the truth is that before this seventh generation model arrived, supermini buyers chose this car either because it was great to drive or because they'd been offered a deal too good to turn down: there wasn't really another reason to buy one. This model changed all that, smarter to look at, smarter to sit in and smarter to operate. A smarter choice all round then? Many will think so. This may not be the largest car in the supermini sector but in just about every other respect, it's an ultra-competitive proposition. There's an unpretentious quality to it and a focus on providing the things that really matter to small car buyers - the fun handling and affordable asking price Ford has long delivered to them in this segment, but also the low running costs, strong safety provision and low emissions that are equally important in today's market. And it's all been done with a polish and self belief that we've never seen from a Fiesta before. In short, this is, more than ever, a small car that supermini buyers simply can't ignore.
