Ford and Me

Milano Grigio // Vignale 1.0 Ecoboost

Leave a comment

I wasn’t really sure about the colour – I know it’s a real cliche that a woman cares about the colour of her car but when I drive my car is an extension of me, my identity, my presence.

To feel confident I need to feel confident in my car – in the safety and technical prowess (when I put my foot down I want to know there’s something to give me) but also in how I am represented on the road. So while I was a little unsure of the colour at first, like most of the gorgeous shades in the Fiesta palette the richness and depth grew on me by the end of our drive…

With Vignale the key is Detail. Every stitch in the right place. There were so many little details to discover…


I would say the extra details are added judiciously rather than everywhere – a cushion of leather *just* where your elbow rests, or a smooth glossiness where your hand will glide. It’s not overdone, it’s more of a flavour, a note of richness like a bass note of perfume.

The B&O Play system we’ve been banging (pun intended) on about is standard here.

The openable panoramic glass roof is in two parts, each with their own blind. The openable section is the front, and is smoothly operated. The opening is big enough that you could stand up and throw your arms in the air… if it was safe to do so of course!

My colleagues agreed that when you’ve driven Vignale, you can appreciate the perhaps otherwise intangible quality of the car.

Once again, because we could, and because we wanted to put off the moment when we had to hand the keys back, we stopped for photographs. In a castle. As you do…


I’ve been taking part in a really special @forduk event this week, sharing all the excitement with you on Social Media. Be Social with me using the icons below #newfiesta #FordFiesta
