Did you know that the Ford Fiesta has been the best-selling car in the UK for the past four years?

You’ll have no fear when you come to selling your Ford to trusted car buyers, knowing there is always such a huge demand for the manufacturer – particularly Ford Fiestas.

There was once a time when a Ford Fiesta was notorious for being a joyrider’s dream car. In the last 10 to 20 years, things have changed…

Ford Fiesta frenzy

The Ford Fiesta first hit our shores in 1976. The supermini is now in its sixth generation (Mark VI) and couldn’t be any popular.

Front-engined and front-wheel drive, the more recent sportier models are understandably now an unashamedly favourite on many a person’s car list.

Since its inception, the Fiesta has sold over 16 million units worldwide.

Ford Fiesta ST – the edgier cousin

If you’re still not convinced by the Ford Fiesta’s pedigree, the Ford Fiesta ST sporty subcompact might change your mind.

The new 2014 Ford Fiesta ST performance model will start the race amongst car manufacturers in the name of frolicsome subcompacts.

Currently, there is little competition on this stage, with the Fiat 500 Abarth and Mini Cooper S the nearest threats in Europe.

Either way, this news should come as no surprise as the Ford Fiesta continues to hold the crown for the UK’s best-selling car.

Fiesta fun

Let’s not get bogged down with number or claims to fame. I’d rather we take a look at what makes the Ford Fiesta fun, and what has ultimately led to its high sales.

A favourite video of mine floating about on the web is the Ford Fiesta shopping centre chase from BBC’s Top Gear.

A fan wrote in to complain that Top Gear didn’t do proper car reviews anymore, so in response, Jeremy Clarkson takes the new Ford Fiesta on a ‘serious’ road test.
