2017 Ford Fiesta Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Sedan and hatchback body styles available
  • Choice of three different engines
  • Optional SYNC3 multimedia system
The 2017 Ford Fiesta is a subcompact car that comes as either a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback. It competes with the MINI Hardtop, Honda Fit, and Nissan Versa Note. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

The sedan version has three trim levels are available: the S, SE, and Titanium.

The hatchback version also has the same three trims as well as a higher performance ST trim.

The Fiesta appears to be the smaller version of the Ford Focus. The front-end features squinting headlights with black-trim housing and a chrome trapezoidal grille. Channeled bodylines give the Fiesta a lean, sculpted appearance. It has standard 15-inch wheels, but larger 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels are available as well. The ST comes with its own unique sporty styling.

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 by the EPA.

Inside, the Fiesta has a standard cloth interior with air conditioning and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. The center stack features the standard SYNC multimedia system with a color display, CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to the SYNC3 multimedia system that includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen, navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and a Sony premium audio system. Other available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, power windows/locks, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, RECARO leather-trim sport seats, and cruise control.

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