Was looking around to replace the Mrs old Suzuki Swift auto, we bought that new nearly eleven years back and it’s done 102k miles. Despite that she passed her test (25 years ago) in a manual, she says she couldn’t drive one now
Phil papa did some work on my beemer recently and very kindly let me use his Fiesta courtesy car which I was hugely impressed with. It had a little 1 litre, 3 cylinder turbo engine.
Typing “best small automatic car” into google the Fiesta came up at or near the top of every list. So had a look around and found this one: Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost Powershift Titanium. Three years old with only 7.7k miles.
Had it a week now and I’m really impressed. The engine is amazing for a 1 litre - it has power right through the rev band and feels very nippy indeed. the DSG twin clutch box is a dream, the gear changes are imperceptible. The ride and refinement are also great for a small car - good around town and quiet on the motorway.
I’m pretty chuffed and the Mrs is over the moon with it
