It’s official: the Ford Fiesta is now the UK’s best-selling vehicle of all time, the nation’s favourite car.

That’s right, this modest little motor can rightfully claim to be Britain’s No.1.

The numbers are impressive: since the car first went on sale, in 1976, more than 4.15m Fiestas have been sold; it has led the small car segment in the UK for 27 years, and has been Britain’s best-selling car since 2009, when it overtook the Ford Focus.
