Ford Fiesta Wins 2014 Telegraph Motoring Awards Car of the Year
The Ford Fiesta has earned the title of2014 Telegraph Motoring Awards Car of the Year after months of voting from readers of The Telegraph, leading up through the publication’s Festival of Motoring.
The Fiesta was the best-selling car in the United Kingdom in 2013 with 121,929 units sold, helping to earn it an almost effortless win in the Best Supermini category. In order to conquer the field, the Fiesta relied on its versatility, affordability, and sportiness.
“There is simply no small hatchback that you can buy today that’s as enjoyable to drive as the Fiesta,” said The Telegraph’s Steve Huntingford. “It feels wonderfully sharp and agile, which is obviously great news on a winding back road. But the Fiesta is also a pleasure on the sort of mundane journeys that most of us do every day, thanks to its beautifully weighted controls, comfortable ride and good visibility.”
