Ford Fiesta Overview

The Fiesta subcompact has agile handling and a supple, controlled ride. Interior fit and finish and equipment levels are among the best of the 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. Powered by a 120-hp, 1.6-liter engine matched with a five-speed manual transmission, our tested Fiesta delivered excellent fuel economy but felt sluggish. A six-speed automated manual is also available and is similarly frugal with fuel. Other choices include a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder turbo, which is available only with a manual transmission. And the sporty, super-agile Fiesta ST is truly fun to drive. Reliability of the nonturbo Fiesta has been well below average; the turbos are unknown.
