Ford Fiesta Active
The New Fiesta Active Has Arrived
The drive for maximum appeal has spawned the Fiesta Active. While Ford already offers a small crossover SUV in the shape of the Ford EcoSport, it recognises that not everybody wants to leave the familiar surroundings of a supermini. Combining the essence of both types of car is therefore a pretty sound idea.
Embellished with 17-inch alloy wheels, tough-looking bodyside cladding and a matching grille, the Fiesta Active certainly looks the part, and it comes as no big surprise that the car is positioned at the top of the Fiesta range. In fact, a premium of between £1,000 and £2,000 over the well equipped Fiesta Titanium means it's priced similarly to the EcoSport. So, why choose the Fiesta?
One major reason is that the Fiesta Active is as good as the standard Fiesta inside, and that puts it above the lack lustre EcoSport in quality terms. Today's Fiesta is more plush inside than ever before, and more spacious too, even if the finish isn't quite on a par with the Volkswagen Polo.
Another reason is the way it drives. The Active's raised ride height hasn't majorly affected the Fiesta’s agile, perky feel, and while the EcoSport is one of the better crossovers to drive, the Active is more enjoyable, helped in no small part by a more sophisticated rear suspension design.
Where the Fiesta Active really excels, though, is its utility. Yes, its SUV style really is only skin deep, but those rugged black mouldings around the wheelarches and front bumper are ideally placed to fend off scrapes. This is a car far more likely to tackle trips to school and the supermarket than one that will be venturing off the beaten track very often. The latter is still possible to a limited extent – the Active's raised suspension and clever 'slippery' driving mode means a damp campsite or field should present little challenge. With a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, the Fiesta is a sound family choice, and the practical, good-looking Active could be just the car you need to tackle the urban jungle.
