Ford Fiesta Popular

The Popular model was added to the Mk1 Fiesta line-up for the first time in January 1981, using the model name from it's bigger Escort brother. The Popular replaced the earlier entry level model, which was formerly just known as 'Fiesta' or 'Base'.

This entry level model came with a choice of two 950cc engines producing either 40 or 45bhp, and a choice of solid colour options. As you would expect, the spec was basic all round, but the car offered motorists an affordable option which sold well against the competition.

The Popular name was continued through to the end of production in 1983, after which it went on to be used on both the Mk2 and Mk3 Fiestas
