There is almost nothing more reassuring than a vote of confidence from a group of drivers who spend their working lives in a car, and the fact that the AA driving school have announced the addition of the latest Ford Fiesta to its 2,000 strong fleet of cars, confirms that Ford have got things right with their latest model of this popular car.

Most popular model

The specific model that is flying off the shelves as it were is the Titanium 1.0 Litre Ecoboost model that delivers 123bhp. There is also a similar 1-0 Litre petrol unit that delivers 98bhp, and both versions of the Fiesta offer a combined fuel economy of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions at only 99g/km.
