The Ford Fiesta has been selected as the Car of the Year 2009 by leading motoring title, Auto Express in the UK.

The Fiesta also won the Best Supermini award and the Ford S-MAX was judged Best MPV. Ford received seven nominations with the Ford Ka, Kuga and two Mondeo models commended.

Editor-in-Chief of Auto Express, David Johns, said: ‘‘Expectations of the latest Fiesta couldn’t have been higher – but it hasn’t disappointed. The sleek exterior makes many rivals look dated, while the cutting-edge cabin is as distinctive as it is attractive. And that’s before you even consider the Fiesta’s dynamic prowess: the nimble chassis and beautifully weighted controls mark it out as something very special.

“We’ve tested the little Ford more intensely than virtually any other car this year, and it’s never been found wanting. Even base models are a joy to drive. All of our category winners are in the mix when it comes to choosing our overall champion, but the Fiesta was our judges’ unanimous choice – and that speaks volumes.”
