Ford scoops double industry award win

Ford scoops double industry award win

Ford is celebrating another industry win after the Fiesta and Mondeo were handed prizes at the 2012 CarBuyer Car of the Year awards.

The panel testing the models for CarBuyer rated both Ford models on running costs, safety, performance, owner satisfaction, reliability and comfort.

Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain managing director, said of the win: "The 2012 Fiesta and Mondeo models showcase the style, technology dynamics and value for which Ford is renowned. It is fantastic too that independent motoring advisers CarBuyer agree."

According to the judging panel, the Ford Fiesta's blend of "driving fun, family-friendly practicality and great value" makes it a hard model to beat.

"It's the way the Fiesta drives that really stands out. Agile handling and sporty responses make it fun to drive on a twisting back road, while the comfortable suspension and low noise levels help take the strain out of long motorway journeys," it said.
