Unlike buying a sports car or luxury cruiser, purchasing an economy car isn’t usually an occasion to celebrate. Yet with belt-tightening just about everywhere you look, the virtues of value and fuel efficiency are becoming just as important and appealing as eye-watering acceleration and sumptuous comfort. On a roll of late, Ford recently tapped into these potentially changing tastes with its subcompact Fiesta.
The Ford Fiesta provides levels of refinement, sportiness and style that not too long ago were unthinkable in the economy class. We’ve found that the entry-level Ford boasts not only impressive comfort, enjoyable driving dynamics and an inviting cabin but also unexpected features like keyless ignition and Ford’s Sync system. In other words, the Ford Fiesta is a winner. Even if you never thought you’d drive a subcompact car, it may be time to reconsider.
