Pros

Perky performance; segment-leading fuel economy; advanced PowerShift transmission; wide range of options and accessories; stylish interior; low base prices


Value Writeup

The Fiesta offers a host of connectivity and tech features that aren't typically available in this budget-priced small-car class. Its 40-mpg EPA highway rating is also the best in its class, while the 6-speed PowerShift transmission is one of the most advanced of those in any small car. Ford says that it will offer best-in-class safety. Other features, including push-button start, aren't typically offered in its price class, while a wide range of potential customization and appearance options appeal to younger shoppers who want to express an individual style.


Model News

The 2011 Ford Fiesta is a new model for the U.S. market this year, but in its present form the Fiesta has already been sold for several years in Europe. As a subcompact that's a little bit smaller than the Ford Focus--and about the same size as the Honda Fit, Nissan Versa and Chevrolet Aveo. The Fiesta aims at younger, tech-savvy small-car buyers, as well as those who are downsizing their cars, but who don't want to sacrifice features.


Model Highlights

The Fiesta comes with a foundation for economical yet sprightly performance. Its 120-horsepower, 1.6L 4-cylinder engine features Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing, which enables smoother low-rev torque while also maximizing fuel economy, all with an EPA highway rating of 40 mpg. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, but the available 6-speed PowerShift transmission is unique in the class; the dry-clutch (twin-clutch) automated manual transmission helps improve both fuel economy and performance versus a traditional automatic.

In most other ways, the Fiesta is laid out much like other subcompacts. The suspension, which has struts in front and a twist-beam axle setup in back promises a sportier driving experience than other economical cars. Electric power steering helps bring more feel of the road than hydraulic systems while also saving fuel; brakes are discs in front with drums in back.

Although the interior layout of the Fiesta, available as either a hatchback or 4-door sedan, is much like other cars of its size, Ford is offering upgraded materials and trims inside, as well as a wide range of textures and colors. The result is a more premium, sporty feel throughout the cabin. Upholstery choices include cloth, leather, or perforated leather with contrast piping, while available ambient lighting includes a choice of seven different colors. Ford has made an effort to keep the interior especially quiet with the use of foam baffles inside the pillars, as well as additional sound insulation behind the instrument panel.

Inside, the Fiesta comes with bucket seats in front and a 60/40-split bench seat in back, which can be folded forward in part or in all to expand cargo space. Front seats are designed for a wide range of sizes, and the steering wheel tilts and telescopes. Cupholders are adjustable, while several smaller bins are provided for odds and ends.

The mid-level SE models include cloth upholstery and keyless entry, a CD audio system, and power windows and locks. Fiesta SES Sport and SEL models add a 6-speaker, 80-watt sound system, along with a floor console, ambient lighting, cruise control and an additional 12-volt outlet. On the outside, they also get heated side mirrors, LED running lamps, side marker lamps and upgraded 16-inch alloy wheels. Safety features are plentiful in the Fiesta: side and side-curtain airbags are standard on all models, as is a driver-side knee bag. Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are also included.

Options offered on the Fiesta include push-button start, heated side mirrors, a power moonroof, remote start, and keypad entry. Custom accessory packages bring other extras such as illuminated doorsill plates, a cargo net, or cargo organizer and premium paint colors such as Yellow Blaze metallic tri-coat are available at extra cost. Ford is also offering Original Wraps-brand custom body-side graphics.

Summary
Ford is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Fiesta vehicles, manufactured from November 3, 2009 through September 21, 2012. The vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." The passenger side curtain air bag will not deploy in the event of a side impact collision when the front passenger seat is empty. Although the side curtain air bag system was designed to suppress the side curtain air bag under this scenario, that information is not explained in the owner's guide for these vehicles as required by FMVSS No.208.

Consequence
An occupant in the right rear seating position will not have coverage from the side curtain air bag in a side impact collision when the front passenger seat is empty, increasing the risk of injury to the right rear occupant.

Ford will notify owners and dealers will reprogram the vehicle's software free of charge so that it no longer suppresses the passenger side curtain air bag when the front passenger seat is empty, and consistent with the description in the owner's guide. The safety recall is expected to begin shortly. Owner's may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Ford's recall campaign number is 12C26. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) notified the agency on April 23, 2015, that they are recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured July 1, 2012, to May 31, 2013, and 2012-2014 Fiesta vehicles manufactured February 1, 2012, to May 31, 2013. On April 30, 2015, Ford expanded the recall to cover an additional 119,567 vehicles, including certain model year 2011 Ford Fiestas manufactured from November 11, 2009, to May 31, 2013 and certain model year 2013 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured from February 1, 2012, to June 30, 2012. A component within the door latches may break making the doors difficult to latch and/or leading the driver or a passenger to believe a door is securely closed when, in fact, it is not.

Consequence
A door that is not securely latched could open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury to a vehicle occupant.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace all four door latches with an improved part, free of charge. Interim notifications were mailed to owners on June 5, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S16

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.

Frontal Barrier Crash Rating Passenger

Side Barrier Rating Passenger Rear Seat

Side Barrier Rating Note
Due to the intrusion of the left rear door during the side impact test, the interior door panel struck the torso of the rear passenger dummy, causing a high lower spine acceleration. High lower spine accelerations, in excess of 82 g's,have a higher likelihood of thoracic injury.
