About Ford Fiesta

Despite its starting price of around $15,000, the new 2017 Ford Fiesta brings good looks, a fun driving experience and robust technology to a once-dreary subcompact market. The Fiesta is Ford's smallest and least expensive car but its expansive lineup includes four trim levels (S, SE, Titanium and ST), and two body styles (a 4-door sedan or versatile 5-door hatchback), which expand its appeal against rivals like the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris and Chevy Sonic. Fuel economy is exceptional. The 2017 Fiesta can achieve up to 43 mpg on the highway with its turbocharged 3-cylinder engine. A favorite of performance buyers is the hopped-up Fiesta ST that packs a turbocharged engine boasting nearly 200 horsepower and a suspension ready for a canyon road.

2016 Ford Fiesta

The big news for the 2016 Ford Fiesta is the availability of Sync 3. This makes the Fiesta among the first of Ford's vehicles to receive the latest – and much better – touch-based infotainment system. Remote keyless entry becomes standard; ditto, a perimeter alarm and two USB charging ports.

What's new for 2015?
2015 Ford Fiesta

With an all-new model on the horizon, the 2015 Ford Fiesta arrives with no changes for this year. 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.

2014 Ford Fiesta
What's new for 2014?
2014 Ford Fiesta

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.

2013 Ford Fiesta
What's new for 2013?
2013 Ford Fiesta

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.

2012 Ford Fiesta
What's new for 2012?
2012 Ford Fiesta

The 2012 Ford Fiesta sub-compact sedan and hatchback adds two new interior option packages to the SEL and SES trims, sees a revised Sport Package with more features, and makes integrated side blind-spot mirrors standard on all models.

Two things everyone knows: (1) America can't make good small cars and (2) Americans don't like small cars. The 2011 Ford Fiesta is good enough to change both perception and reality.

"My first new off the lot car and I was so thrilled. Soon after I purchased it began grinding when shifting and sputtering and jerking. I was told by the Ford dealership that its because I am driving it wrong..... let that sink in..... I was driving it wrong. So I asked how I should be driving it and they said give it more gas. whoa big shock, that did nothing. They reprogramed the transmission and within a week we had the same issue. Then the company issued a recall on a piece and after that being replaced the car still has issues. Already have a lemon law lawyer after them so I hear. For transmission issues and all sorts of things. Its a darn shame they couldnt make the thing quality because over all it is really nice looking and I loved the interior and great gas mileage. Went out today though and guess what now,,,, all electrical controls are dead in the touch screen and dash, except my radio which wont turn off even if the car is off so the battery ran itself dead for the second time because of this issue. DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE CARS!"

"Ive had this car for a year now. I did have 4 recalls performed on it and that fixed almost all my issues! However my front right axle makes a weird grinding noise ever since i bought it, and no one says they know what it is? It runs great, pretty quiet, fast, reliable, and agile!"
