Be Wiser Insurance

Drivers looking to downsize in a bid to reduce the amount they spend on car insurance, road tax and fuel may want to consider the new Ford Fiesta.

The model has just made MSN\'s top ten motors of the year, in a poll that is generally dominated by vehicles from the luxury sector.

Clinching eighth spot, the Fiesta took six per cent of the 80,000 votes cast.

Nissan\'s GT-R drove away with the overall title of Car of the Year 2009 - with 29 per cent of participants deciding this was the best vehicle on the UK market.

The Jaguar XF secured second spot and the Ferrari California followed closely behind in third.

Commenting on the winning model, MSN content editor Tom Evans said: "Not only does the GT-R boast impressive specs and enough sheer motoring muscle to outrun its rivals ... [it] also boasts one of the most eye-catching, contemporary designs in the supercar fraternity."

Last year, MSN reported some of the most popular gadgets among car buyers are night vision and adaptive cruise control.
