I’ve never really been a fan of Fiesta’s until now with this generation of Mk6.5. Distant memories of slow, horribly rattly engines with podgy suspension and nasty interiors always gave me plenty of things to hate about them.
Don’t get me wrong though; I grew up with Rovers…. but if you looked beyond the Honda links and tragically fake wood trim, these “Rhonda’s” at least possessed a better engine and powertrain. Admittedly you had to look quite hard, but at least you had decent performance whilst sounding nicer!
This time round though, I’m quite impressed with our end result.
