Ford Fiesta Overview

The Fiesta subcompact drives nicely, with agile handling and a supple, controlled ride. Interior fit and finish, and equipment levels are also impressive for this class, with soft-touch dash materials and a relatively quiet cabin. But the rear seat is very cramped and the optional MyFord Touch system is difficult to use. In our tests the five-speed manual version felt slow, but fuel economy with either transmission is excellent. A six-speed automated manual is also available. The sporty, super-agile ST is truly fun to drive. A 1.0-liter, three-cylinder turbo is available, but only with the manual. Reliability has been well below average.
