Both the engines deliver power in a smooth and effortless way and develop a decent amount of grunt from low down in the power band which translates into fewer gearshifts in the city.
The petrol motors tend to have a throttle body problem, so a jerky throttle could well be a costly affair to repair out of warranty. Be alert to check whether the car makes a loud screeching noise which will indicate a required change in the time belt. Do not miss to check the brakes. If you need to press the pedal fully before it actually functions chances are that you will end up spending a considerable amount on the same.
The Fiesta's body shell is tough and built-to-last , but check signs for shunt.Replacing body panels can be expensive.

Prices of the different models are approximately as under:
