Pros Love the looks, sexy pickup in the diesel version, great fuel efficiency

Cons Left hand side controls,

I would rate the diesel version of the Fiesta on par or better than any other diesel car in its class. While not as peppy as a Hyundai Verna it definitely has enough oopmh to have fun. The diesel vehicle also gives suprisingly high fuel efficiency of nearly 17kmpl given the size of the vehicle. Having the indicator on the left hand side of the driving wheel is a pain though. I keep flicking on the wiper instead of the indicator. Leg room at the back is not that good especially if the front seats are pushed back. Overall it is a good car and I personally rank it better than the Verna

Pros Lean and mean

Cons Fords heritage is revealed

After a clocking a lac kilometers in my Feista 1.4 Diesel SXI im quite impressed with its performance. The ticker ticks @ 18-20 Kmpl still. Driving is a pleasure on the highway. Smooth over rough roads but careful the strut bearings do not take hard beatings. I got them replaced twice. Suspension is soft and gives a floaty feel. I suggest 195 x 14x 60 Micheline would offset the meandering feel above 120KMPH.It also helps the feista to stay glued to the road. Maintenance will pinch at times when statutory change are made. Get an extended warranty. It really helps!!!. The interiors reflect quality and pedigree of Ford. The negative aspect of the fiesta is in the back seat. Its a BENCH. The reclining angle is stiff. Long distance on the back seat is a terrible punishment. Otherwise a good value for your money
