Ford Fiesta Zetec Climate 1.6TDCI (Mk6.5): Looks / Practicality

Faults / Options? / Verdict



The car looks just as good in this metallic colour; it doesn’t quite contrast the chrome as much as the black did, but it does with the privacy glass instead.   The wheels are a bit weedy though, looking a bit lost and cheap.

We’ve gone for the red dashboard this time with matching seats.   In reality the dash looks slightly orange, but it’s certainly eye catching and divides opinion. It brightens up the cabin even more than the last, although some find it a bit garish…..or just plain vile.   I frankly love it!
