If you have to brace the horrendous traffic driving to and from work, a compact and good performing car is your perfect vehicle. But it also needs to look pretty sweet. However, that doesn’t mean it should burn a hole in your wallet.

The Ford Fiesta Ecoboost, with its 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol turbo engine offers the performance you need and still provides great fuel efficiency.

Comparing the feisty Ford, the total cost of ownership for the first three years is far lower than the Suzuki Swift Sport 1.6  VVT DOHC and Peugeot 208 1.6 Allure (3-doors).

Don’t be too quick to assume that it’s too much to pay for just a 1.0L engine. The price of the Ford Fiesta Ecoboost provides value that not many cars of the same range can provide, with terrific chasis, better fuel efficiency and safety features and of course, the statement you will be making zipping up and down the road in the Fiesta, is priceless.

With the total cost of ownership calculated based on the depreciation rate, fuel consumption, loan interest, auto insurance, road tax and maintenance, the spunky car is a wise choice for city living.
