2017 Ford Fiesta Mixes Practicality with Fun
The 2016 Ford Fiesta is a surprisingly fun-to-drive car with phenomenal gas mileage and great interior space for such a small package. The Fiesta comes in either hatchback or sedan form and seats four adults with unusual comfort for a subcompact. The standard 120 horsepower engine gets a welcome 37 miles per gallon in the city and 28 on the highway. But with the available six-speed PowerShift transmission and high-tech wizardry like Ford’s computerized torque-vectoring system, this isn’t your mother’s ’85 Fiesta. Even the base model thrusts through turns like an F-22, pushing you back in your seat off the line and pulling shockingly high lateral Gs for such an inexpensive vehicle. This Fiesta truly is a driver’s car. Forget everything you think you know about subcompacts. With the 2017 Ford Fiesta, Ford has transcended that genre’s banal limitations and emerged with an automotive lightning bolt that’s more mid-90s ‘Vette that Hertz economy car.
