Overview of the Ford Fiesta

Learn about the Ford Fiesta

Summary

The Ford Fiesta is one of the world’s most popular and recognizable subcompact cars. While its history stretches back to the 1970s, the Fiesta has only been sold in North America since 2010. Users praise this small vehicle for its quick handling and as an overall joy to drive, although some find the trunk and backseat space a bit too snug. With its compact chassis and emphasis on agile turning, the Fiesta is a great choice for drivers in the market for a sporty, exhilarating ride all in a tiny, easy-to-park package.

Safety

The Fiesta has consistently received solid safety ratings. These are just a few of its most notable safety features: 

  • Rearview camera for extra visibility and awareness when reversing, available from 2012
  • Electronic stability control to improve traction and handling in challenging road or weather conditions, standard from 2011
  • Driver-knee airbags for added protection, also standard from 2011

In 2011 models and onwards, Ford's Personal Safety System includes dual-stage front airbags, safety belt energy management and usage sensors, crash severity sensors, and a front-passenger sensing system

Interior

On the basic level, the Fiesta’s interior comes with a 12 V front power outlet for charging devices, as well as a steering column that can telescope and tilt to fit the driver’s preferences. Current and previous models have been noted for their clean stylings and the softness of the plastics in the interior.

Technology

The Fiesta’s SYNC 3 infotainment centre is known for being responsive and straightforward. It includes a crystal-clear 16.5 cm touchscreen, though voice activation lets you also engage with the system’s features while your hands stay firmly on the wheel.

Available since 2016, SYNC 3 offers route mapping, connectivity with FordPass to compare fuel prices or reserve parking spaces, and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Older infotainment systems include MyFord Touch, first introduced in the 2014 Fiesta. Ford’s original voice-activated Sync system can be found as an option from the 2011 vehicle range and up.

Space

Although the Fiesta can seat five, the cramped backseat and smaller cargo space make this not the best choice for long group trips. The hatch offers 7.75 cubic metres of space when the rear seats are folded down, and 4.5 cubic metres with the seats up. The 60/40 split means half the rear seat can be folded to make room for a passenger and additional cargo.

Comfort

You really can’t go wrong with the Fiesta if you’re looking for a small car with dynamic performance. This car’s nimble handling and reliable 120 hp, 1.6 L Ti-VCT engine—which comes standard—offers a sporty experience. Couple this agility with the Fiesta’s intuitive controls and cargo hold sufficient for day-to-day use, and you’ve got a great option for daily city driving that requires zippy manoeuvring and tight parking.

Frequently asked questions about the Ford Fiesta

The Fiesta appeared in North American markets in its seventh generation—in 2008. However, Ford has recently confirmed that the Fiesta will be discontinued in May 2019.

While many smaller Fords such as the Focus, Fusion and Taurus all offer all-wheel drive options, the Fiesta is a front-wheel drive vehicle.

You can choose whether you want a Ford Fiesta with manual or automatic transmission. The newest models feature six-speed automatic transmission.

The Fiesta has been manufactured around the world. Past production regions include Europe, India, China, Taiwan, Mexico, Argentina, Thailand, Brazil and South Africa.

Between 2009 and 2019, the Ford Fiesta has had fuel economies between 7.2 L/100 km and 7.9 L/100 km.
