2014 Toyota Prius c vs. 2015 Ford Fiesta 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 Toyota Prius c than the Ford Fiesta. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Prius c, drivers may find the Ford Fiesta a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Prius c as you will with the Ford Fiesta, 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). The Toyota Prius c is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Fiesta. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Prius c and the Ford Fiesta have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Toyota Prius c is a little narrower than the Ford Fiesta, 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 Toyota Prius c takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Fiesta.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Prius c has much less torque than the Ford Fiesta, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Prius c has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford Fiesta, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Prius c is significantly less powerful than the Ford Fiesta. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Prius c and the Ford Fiesta.

Warranty
The Toyota Prius c comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Fiesta.
