2015 Ford Fiesta vs. 2014 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fiesta than the Honda Civic. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, the Ford Fiesta may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fiesta as you will with the Honda Civic, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fiesta will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Civic. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fiesta will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic.

Dimensions
The Ford Fiesta is a little narrower than the Honda Civic, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Ford Fiesta, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Civic.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Fiesta doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda Civic.

Handling
The Ford Fiesta has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Fiesta has less horsepower than the Honda Civic, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fiesta and the Honda Civic. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Fiesta will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Civic.

Warranty
The Ford Fiesta comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic.
