over 16 million Ford Fiestas have been sold since 1976 and it has recently been crowned Used Car of the Year at the Motor Trader Awards.

Now in its 28th year, the Motor Trader Industry Awards are widely viewed as the automotive industry's Oscars.

With so many second-hand models available (an impressive 94,533 units sold in 2017 alone*) - not to mention its stellar all-round performance, looks and value - it should come as little surprise that the Ford Fiesta has just been voted the Used Car of the Year 2018.

Commended by the judges for its great drivability and ability to hold its value well, the Fiesta has consistently been one of the best-selling and best-performing cars on the market, making it perfect for the second-hand market.

Boasting a range of great engines, a used Fiesta truly is the epitome of a great all-rounder, seamlessly fusing punchy performance, lovely looks and financial frugality.

So, what to look for when buying a used Ford Fiesta?

Well, which model Fiesta you go for will largely depend on your budget, but let's say you go for the most recent Mk7, which we can't recommend highly enough.

Boasting an excellent safety record, sleek exterior, spacious interior and smooth drive, the most recent Fiesta really does put the super in supermini. Due to its size, it's a great city car but also holds its own on longer journeys; a family of four can travel in comfort and the boot should hold all you need for a long weekend away.

If you are in the market for one, the sheer amount of second-hand Fiestas on the market means that you should really consider buying one with a full service history. On the flip side of that coin, the volume of Fiestas at UK car dealership forecourts shouldn't make that too much of a problem.

The Fiesta's popularity should also be taken into account in terms of the longevity of the car. In the rare event that you will need to fix anything on this otherwise reliable car, then these repairs should be relatively inexpensive given the good availability of parts from many garages.

As the recent Motor Trader award will testify we are looking, essentially, at one of the best used cars on the market. And, with thousands available through findandfundmycar.com, you can find your perfect one today.
