With an all-new model on the horizon, the 2015 Ford Fiesta enters its last model year with no changes. The good news is that it's still fine, with a sporty ST model, a fuel-efficient 3-cylinder, and all the style and features you can pack into a subcompact.
Model year 2014 brings a minor restyle and a major performance boost to the Ford Fiesta line. The ST model, with its 197-horsepower EcoBoost 1.6 engine, becomes the presumptive King Hot Hatch in the sub-compact category. A unique 3-cylinder EcoBoost 1.0 is optional in the other models.
More than the vehicle itself, the Ford Fiesta's order sheet has been revised for 2013 creating a new, more rational alignment of equipment and feature packages. There are now three distinct trim levels – S, SE and Titanium – each of which is available on both Sedan and Hatch body styles.
The 2015 Ford Fiesta is part of the elite segment of the subcompact market that includes the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris and Chevrolet Sonic. Sailing into its last year before a full redesign, there aren't a lot of changes. That's OK, as we're smitten with its slick European looks, excellent fuel economy, and fun-to-drive nature. Extroverts can opt for wild exterior and interior colors and trims, while the more practical can opt for the security of a 4-door's trunk, or the versatility of a 5-door's hatchback body. The Fiesta's available in S, SE, and Titanium trim levels, or a hatchback-only high-performance ST. Then there's the available 1.0-liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which Ford says gives the Fiesta the best non-hybrid fuel economy on the market.View Ford Fiesta vehicles for sale near you.

"We liked this car so much we bought 2. We had 2 focuses before and mine was the 2dr hatch. I was getting thrashed driving that car, I have a bad back and the ride was horrible. I test drove a bunch of used cars when the finance guy suggested we test drive a Fiesta. I fell in love with it from the minute I sat in it. It rides nice. We avg 32 mpg in the city. The only thing I wish we had was a year for free Sirius."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 26,500overall rating 3 of 10rating details
Pros: "Nice looking"
Cons: "bad transmissions, poor fuel mileage, and more"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2
"I purchased this car band new and by 26,000 I had to replace the transmission because of a terrible grinding sound coming from the transmission while driving. Ford was not helpful and kept pushing me out the door until 6 months and 8 visits to the dealership later they finally replaced the transmission. They stated that the grinding noise is perfectly normal characteristics of the vehicle but if it's grinding on all gears then they replace the transmissions?? Seems fishy to me... Plus I only get 34 miles per gallon and I have had this car for over a year now; my travel time is all high way also and they can't explain why. DON'T BUY THEM!"

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 14,000overall rating 9 of 10rating details
Pros: "Gas mileage, SYNC funtion"
Cons: "The tranni ats weird for the first 5K miles until"

"I bought the 2014 model in Sept. '13 from Midway Ford. The interior is just as you would expect for any economy car so I cannot complain- you get what you pay for. However, I use the SYNC function all the time with my Kindle and the sound from the six speakers is terrific. The gas mileage is incredible: recently I drove 425 miles on one tank of gas (nearly all highway though) Its the perfect commuting car if you need a car to get to/from work and need something economical and that will get you from point A to B."
