Thanks to the impressive loading capacity of the Fiesta - as demonstrated by my parents' dog on a recent trip home - it hasn't been evident we've been driving a supermini.
However, one staff member, with beefier forearms than the rest of the BusinessCar team, encountered a problem with the Ford's size when attempting to adjust the front seat position.
It turned out he was unable to fit his arm between seat and door without opening the door - something certainly not to be recommended at speed.
