    Thanks for the replies.

    The privacy glass, armrest and climate control were all separate options originally, but my understanding is that for the current build year, Audi have changed this so that instead of being available separately, they have been grouped together as an option pack.

    I have ordered the car, but have been told by the dealer I can add on the pack if I let him know by the end of the week.

    However, I think I’m pretty much decided I’m going to leave it. If I was buying the car and keeping it for x years, I’d probably do it, but for a 3 year lease I don’t think it’s worth it.

    The dealer has said that I can add after market privacy glass from a local company when the car is delivered for around £200, so I may do that.

    Have you had a look at the Seat Ibiza? I don’t know how the spec compares with the Fiesta but id assume a top spec Ibiza isn’t that much different. Sporty looks, £0 ap, good fuel economy and a DSG gearbox

    It’s a model I’ve thought about, but my understanding is that the Ibiza is essentially a cheaper version of the VW Polo; and in turn the Audi A1 is basically an overpriced Polo. Not sure how accurate that is, though!

    Hi JL you say you intend to test drive the Mini And Audi over the next couple of months, I would take this time to try as many different vehicles and manufacturers, we ended up with a vehicle had not considered before, (Tucson) as an example a trip to Hyundai the ix20 and the Kona is a good contender to the fiesta plus you may be surprised at the Ioniq. That’s just one manufacturer but take your time and Enjoy looking around don’t put yourself under pressure, searching for a new car should be fun and enjoyable experience.

    Hi. Thanks for the advice. I will certainly research as many makes as possible. I’ll also go to one of the Motability event days, as they are great for being able to look at a wide variety of cars in one place.

    hi jl151080 I am in the same position.i like the fiesta very much but am told by various sources that the fuel consumption on the fiesta automatics are absolute rubbish,has you have had three over the last nine years can you confirm what sort of consumption you have got,they say they are well behind the manual transmission fiestas on consumption.any feedback from other fiestas automatic owners would be very welcome

    I’ve checked the car and it’s currently reading 42.7 mpg, so a little better than I thought it was!

    Hi. My current car is a 66 plate so is the last generation model. My fuel consumption is usually around 37 mpg.

    My advice (against my normal instinct to try something different) would be to go for the Fiesta Vignale as you like what it offers, know its comfortable and it is still very highly rated. Its outstanding in most areas compared to rivals. You won’t regret it.

    The Vignale definitely has the best standard spec of the models I’m considering. Part of me just wants to try something else having had 3 consecutive Fiestas; but I suspect in the end I’ll just get another Fiesta! There doesn’t seem to be much to match them. The new one just looks a bit dull!
