The Ford Fiesta is an excellent choice for a small car that’s fun to drive. The subcompact hatchback and sedan offer class leading technology and deliver outstanding fuel economy. Despite diminutive size, the Fiesta has a surprising amount of space for passengers and cargo.

What's New for 2014

The big news this year is the introduction of a new 1- liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine that achieves up to 45 mpg highway with a Fuel Economy Package. The Fiesta sports an exciting new look with a bold chrome grille and new hood. The Fiesta is also available with Ford’s SYNC System and MY Touch, plus optional leather-trimmed seats, moonroof, heated mirrors, and an ambient lighting system.

Except for the high-performance ST, available only as a hatchback, the first major decision in a Fiesta purchase is between hatchback and sedan. If you want to save some money, and don't have a strong preference, it's worth noting sedans cost $500 less than similarly equipped hatchbacks.

Trim level determines everything from drivetrain to standard features and option package availability:

S

The base Fiesta comes with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a standard five-speed manual. It delivers 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque and serves up 29 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. The optional PowerShift Automatic boosts fuel economy numbers to 30 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. Standard equipment isn't lavish—windows are manual, not electric—but other basics like power locks, air conditioning and Ford’s SYNC system are included in the base price.

SE

Step up to the SE in either sedan or hatch, and you gain access to the optional 1-liter EcoBoost engine. Also optional is the Fuel Economy Package that can turn the Fiesta into a 45 mpg highway champ. Cruise control and power windows are now standard, while a moonroof and automatic climate control are available.

Titanium

The Titanium is a luxury car in miniature, with leather upholstery, heated front seats, automatic climate control, push-button start and a rearview camera. You can't have the 1-liter EcoBoost, though. The only engine on offer is the 1.6-liter four.

ST

The top-spec ST uses a turbocharged version of the 1.6-liter four to achieve remarkable performance. You'll also get a sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch alloy wheels and aluminum pedals. Recaro seats are optional.

CarsDirect Tip

If you want hybrid-like mileage, an SE with the EcoBoost engine and Fuel Economy Package make it a serious bargain. We'd opt for a Titanium model, though—how often can you get that much for less than $20,000?
