2015 Ford Fiesta vs. 2014 Honda CR-Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fiesta will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-Z.

Convenience
The Ford Fiesta will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda CR-Z, making it more convenient to drive.

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 CR-Z. 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 CR-Z.

Dimensions
The Ford Fiesta is a little narrower than the Honda CR-Z, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fiesta takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda CR-Z.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Fiesta transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda CR-Z.

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Ford Fiesta and the Honda CR-Z.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Ford Fiesta more than the Honda CR-Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Ford Fiesta as you will in the Honda CR-Z.

Warranty
The Ford Fiesta comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-Z.
