FORD 2017 Fiesta ST 07

All New Ford Fiesta 2017 Review


The Ford Fiesta has been one of the world’s most popular small cars for longer than most people care to imagine. However, the manufacturer is still working hard to ensure improved designs hit the market every year. We were lucky enough to get hold of a 2017 model for the weekend recently. The review on this page should help people out there who consider purchasing this edition in the near future. At the end of the day, the Fiesta is still an impressive automobile with an excellent safety record. It’s also more affordable than many of its competitors. You can probably tell this review is going to be positive, but it’s hard to find any issues with this release


Before we consider anything else, let’s take a look at the specs of the new model. The entry level edition includes fifteen-inch alloy wheels and manual air conditioning. It also sports a 4.2-inch digital screen with Bluetooth. Drivers will be glad to learn the Fiesta also includes lots of assistance tools designed to keep you safe. For example, hill start assist and lane keep assisting technology comes as standard. That should help to reduce the number of incidents on our roads this year. With a top speed of just over 150 mph, the basic edition is more than fast enough for most road users. However, the Zetec and other releases can travel slightly faster. Still, nobody should need to do that on public roads unless they want to go to prison.


When it comes to driving the 2017 Fiesta, it feels similar to previous models. As we just mentioned, the lane keep assisting tool is handy on long journeys. However, it doesn’t take anything away from the overall driving experience. The Fiesta takes corners like a dream, and it handles well in all manner of different weather conditions. While we only had the car for the weekend, it was a stress-free experience. Some of the older models suffered transmission issues after only a few years. Drivers often encountered the type of problems mentioned at However, designers ensure buyers there is no cause for concern this time around.

Style and price

As always, the Fiesta looks smart, compact and stylish. It comes in a broad range of different colours, and Ford even offers the opportunity to design something original. There is a tool on the website that enables buyers to determine many different aspects of the car’s appearance. As most people would expect, prices are kept low to ensure the automobile remains affordable to the masses. That is why the basic edition starts at just under £13,000 in the UK. That’s around $22,000 Australian dollars. The ST is a little more expensive as we mentioned in a previous article.

Well, that’s it for today folks. We loved testing and reviewing the 2017 Ford Fiesta, and we hope it will remain as popular as ever. At the end of the day, it’s hard to find a better model for the same price from any of the top manufacturers. With that in mind, we recommend you give it a test drive if you’re looking for a new vehicle this year.
