Motorway miles aren’t the Fiesta’s forte. While a comfy enough place to spend time (the seats are mega), at typical cruising speeds the Zetec S feels fidgety, the ride unsettled and the direct steering almost too sharp. In the absence of a sixth gear, 80mph is more than halfway round the rev-range, so fuel economy is a tad disappointing too – around 34mpg is the motorway norm.
