Ford Fiesta SportVan: fast cargo carrier

Fiesta SportVan road test Review: Sam Hardy

Ford Fiesta Sportvan 1.6TDCi 90PS

What is it?

A hot hatch Ford Fiesta van. Based on the 1.6TDCi model, Sportvan gets front and rear splitters, 16-inch alloy wheels and a boot spoiler. Inside, there are sports seats, metal-effect trim and leather coverings for the gearlever and steering wheel.

What’s hot?

  • Thanks to that bodykit, the Sportvan certainly draws attention
  • Seats are comfortable and the interior is logically laid out
  • Handles very well with direct steering and hardly any body roll
  • Diesel only musters 88bhp but…
  • …with 240Nm of torque, performance is still strong
  • Should return around 50mpg
  • Over 1,000 litres of cargo space and a 543kg payload too.

What’s not?

  • That hollow space behind you makes for lots of road noise
  • Despite metal trim, the cabin is still drab
  • Technology Pack comes with Bluetooth, aircon and a heated screen…
  • …but costs an extra £600
  • New Fiesta van is due in around 12 months

Business Van Manager Road Test Rating

Ideal for owner-drivers the Ford Fiesta Sportvan stands out from the crowd and drives well. It’s not the newest van on the roads, and you’ll have to stump up £600 for some business essentials like Bluetooth and aircon, but it still adds up to a strong package.
