2011 Ford Fiesta

Following one of the most aggressive pre-launch programs ever, Ford's compact Fiesta is about to light up Ford showrooms in both sedan and five-door hatch configurations. All versions and trim levels of this spacious, smartly-styled and well-appointed front driver share a very efficient 1.6-liter Ti-VCT Duratec four that makes 120 horsepower and can be coupled with either a five-speed manual transmission or Ford's first dual-clutch PowerShift six-speed automatic. Although a more potent EcoBoost alternative -- which will come at some point -- would make us love it even more, the 2011 Ford Fiesta still garnered a spot in our recent Top 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 list.
