I love this car. I had to buy a brand new car after I drove my first car to the ground, and I'm very pleased with this beauty. I got the hatchback version and I LOVE the model! It's cute, easy to drive, speedy, and drives well in the snow. It has both blindspot mirrors on both sides, a USB port, a car charging port, along with a blue tooth touch screen that uses sync. The car also has the ability to go into a standard version when driving, which can be useful in the snow or steep downhill gradings. One of my favorite cosmetic features is how the car lights up purple on the inside when it is dark. I currently get between 25 - 33 miles per gallon on the interstate during rush hour traffic, but it gets better in town. The dashboard also lets me know how many miles I have to go until empty. Even though it's a 4 cylinder, it gets up to 75 in no time. 15/10, would recommend!!

Most reliable car i have ever had!!

This car has exceeded my expectations! It is very reliable, safe and stylish! Great car for people with children. And not over priced for all the great features that you get.

Love this car!

This car is all you would expect. The six speed manual transmission is fantastic. There is plenty of room for five people or fold back seats down for tons of space for shopping or travel. Front wheel drive was excellent in the snow. Excellent gas mileage.

2016 Ford Fiesta Overview


Back with light updates for the new model year, the 2016 Ford Fiesta subcompact comes in two body styles: sedan or hatchback.

The Fiesta in many ways looks like a smaller version of the Focus, with Ford’s trapezoidal front grille leading the way. 15-inch wheels are standard, with larger 16- and 17-inch wheels optional. Personally, the Fiesta’s proportions work better as a hatchback to my eyes but both models are more stylish than a good portion of the segment. Ford also offers a high-performance version called the Fiesta ST, which only comes as a hatchback. It has more aggressive styling with some extra bodywork and a rear spoiler and unique 17-inch wheels.

Under the hood, the Fiesta has three engine options. The base engine is a 120-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Ford also offers a 123-hp, turbocharged 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine that only comes with the five-speed manual. ST models get a turbocharged version of the base engine that makes 197-hp and only comes with a six-speed manual. The tiny three-cylinder returns the best fuel economy of the bunch, estimated at 31/43 mpg city/highway.

Inside, the Fiesta seats five and offers air conditioning, SYNC, Bluetooth connectivity, auxiliary audio input and remote keyless entry standard. For 2016, Ford’s new SYNC 3 communications suite is optional; it comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen that now supports pinch-to-zoom functionality and swiping. The Fiesta also offers some upscale features like heated seats, leather upholstery, push-button start, and a remote start system.

Standard safety features include seven airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system. A rearview camera is optional.
