Final weekend I had the pleasure of test driving the all-new 2017 Ford Fiesta, courtesy of Keith Motors in Christchurch. When they approached me I essentially was fairly shocked, it is not genuinely like something I have ever carried out prior to and even though I appreciate vehicles I’m surely no professional. Nonetheless, Keith Motors explained that they have been searching for genuine evaluations from genuine individuals, and in our case – a family members of 4. We have been in a position to definitely test out the capacity of the new model and see if it was appropriate for a family members.
We set off on a family members mini-break to Newquay to keep at the lovely Sands Resort Hotel & Spa and even though I will be posting a separate post about the hotel I cannot anxiety adequate how extremely family members friendly it was. It was all the luxury of a spa resort but with a lot for kids and none of the tacky-entertainment that you get with some resorts. Verify back quickly for our Newquay adventure post.
The very first factor we loved about the new Fiesta was the ‘key-much less system’, beginning the auto with the very simple touch of a button was unknown to us but particularly effortless. We also loved the ‘lane-assist’ function, automatically correcting us if we have been ever slightly swaying to one particular side of the lane, and of course the cruise handle was a need to on a extended family members trip. The very first factor that the kids raved about – bar the shiny paint of it becoming a new auto – was the ‘assisted parking’. They have been blown away when the auto parked itself quite smoothly into a parallel space in the centre of the Cornish town. If I’m sincere, I was also a big fan of this, parallel parking was by no means my forte!
The hi-tech show program installed in the new model was excellent for a smooth four hour journey to Newquay, kitted out with navigation, audio possibilities and mobile apps for added entertainment. Not to mention it was wonderful becoming in a position to hook your telephone straight up by means of Bluetooth and make calls to any of the contacts just by means of voice handle. We have been pleasantly shocked with how spacious it felt as properly. A family members of 4, two bulky children’s auto seats, lots of luggage and of course a 38 week pregnant lady all comfortably travelling inside. The little ones discovered it effortless to doze off in the back just after the initial excitement had worn off and we had exhausted the Disney playlist by means of the effortless-peasy iPhone connection. When we hit the tiny Cornish villages it was wonderful to test out the ‘Eco-mode’, excellent when you are not travelling more rapidly than 30-40mph to conserve petrol and save the old planet!
Lastly, we have been genuinely impressed with the size of the boot, it had 4-peoples worth of luggage and a hospital bag – just in case this child decided to make an early look and however we nonetheless have been left with ample space. Getting so heavily pregnant at the moment, all the things is all about ‘comfort’ correct now. The seats have been super comfy which was best for the extended drive and I had a lot of leg space to unwind when I wasn’t driving.
