A panel of 18 female motoring writers who judged the awards on safety, value-for-money, aesthetic appearance, storage space, child-friendliness, ease-of-driving, colour, sex appeal and environmental footprint, praised the Fiesta’s “high-end look and feel” and fuel efficiency, placing it ahead of the Audi Allroad, Range Rover and Porsche Boxster S.

Pair this with the multi-award-winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine which reaches range and performance levels never seen before, and this stylish pocket rocket wins in every category.” said Women’s World Car of the Year UK judge Victoria MacMillan Bell.

It offers a bold new exterior, an interior optimised for ergonomics and comfort, and Ford MyKey, an industry-first technology that allows parents to encourage safer driving and limit their teenager’s exposure to risk at the wheel. The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which had won the International Engine of the Year 2013 and 2012, delivers 123 hp and outputs only 99 g/km of CO2. It also achieved the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating and offers a Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance. An Active City Stop also helps avoid low speed collisions.
