The Ford Fiesta’s boot and back seats might be much roomier than the old model’s but it’s still not quite as spacious as some similarly-sized alternatives

Passenger space

Even entry-level models of the Ford Fiesta have a height-adjustable driver’s seat and the steering wheel also moves for rake and reach, so getting comfy isn’t a problem.

Vignale models come with a height-adjustable passenger seat and lumbar adjustment for both front seats, while Titanium and ST-Line X cars can have that kit plus a panoramic sunroof as part of a £600 pack.

Beware, though – the glass roof eats into rear headroom, which isn’t super generous to begin with. Space in the back isn’t terrible – a six-foot-tall passenger can fit, but they won’t want to be crammed in there for too long. Really, you’re better off looking at a more-spacious SEAT Ibiza if you’re planning to carry adults in the back.

If you’re going to be using the back seats regularly then go for a five-door Ford Fiesta. They’re a £650 option, but make back-seat access much easier. The Ford’s Isofix points are marked clearly but getting the top of the seat through to the rear door opening is a little bit awkward.

Storage space

The Ford Fiesta has a number of smaller storage areas for hiding away your day-to-day clutter. The glovebox is big enough for a bottle of water and the door pockets will take a bottle, too. All versions get two cupholders, all but Style models have a place for your sunglasses in the headlining, and ST-Line models and above have a centre armrest with a small storage area underneath it.


Space in the back is just about OK for adults but the optional panoramic sunroof will cause nothing but discomfort for your taller passengers on long journeys

Boot space

The Ford Fiesta’s 292-litre boot is bigger than the old model’s, but it’s still a good bit off the 355-litre load bay you get in a SEAT Ibiza. It’s practical though, particularly if you go for the £75 adjustable boot floor, which eliminates the load lip – making it much easier to slide heavy items into the boot.

It’s also handy when you’ve got the rear seats folded down, giving you a completely flat floor, so it’s much easier to make full use of the Fiesta’s 1,093-litre capacity. All Ford Fiesta models get rear seats that fold down in a 60:40 split, meaning that you can have a passenger in the back as well as a long load poking through from the boot.
