If there’s one car manufacturer that’s instantly recognisable, it has to be Ford. This household name has been gracing our roads for just over a century, since 1907.
Quite simply, Ford is a giant and one of the original masters in building and designing top class cars. Despite being an American born and bred business, people in the UK have had a constant love affair with all things Ford.
Best known for making well designed cars that are excellent value and persistent best sellers, Ford can seemingly do no wrong. They’re a family run business and these family values translate into the design and build of their cars: dependable, safe and of great quality.
With some undeniable classics over the years including the 1970s Capri and Escort, Ford are now best known for two current favourites: the Fiesta and the Focus.
For the last seven years in a row, the Ford Fiesta has been the most popular car in the UK outselling the second favourite, the Vauxhall Corsa. Born back in 1976, this popular run-around has gone through many transformations over the years to the sleek and stylish Fiesta that we know and love today.
So why’s the Ford Fiesta so popular? Perhaps we should ask ourselves - what’s not to love? With its good looks it’s a real joy to drive, plus it’s reliable and economical. This neat little car really does seem to have it all. And, let’s not forget the Focus which has the title for best-selling hatchback car in the UK. The Focus is roomy, attractive and exciting to drive too. It’s no wonder Ford remains a firm favourite with our young drivers.
