What You Will Like

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 very impressive, while the 6-speed PowerShift transmission is one of the most advanced automatics in any small car. 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. Finally, the 197-hp Fiesta ST offers speed and agility unparalleled in this class.

Loading Comparison...


Since it came along six years ago, the Ford Fiesta has established a distinct identity, expressive and fun to drive, nimble and tight, and that’s not something you can say about many subcompact cars. It comes as a sedan or a more spirited five-door hatchback.

The base engine is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder making 120 horsepower. It isn’t exactly quick but it’s peppy enough. It comes with a 5-speed manual transmission, which we prefer, or the 6-speed PowerShift automatic, a twin-clutch design that can’t hold a candle to the VW/Audi transmission.

The big engineering news is the tiny 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine (manual transmission), making 123 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. It’s more fun than the four-cylinder to drive with spirit; keep the revs up and you’ll be a fan. We did this and got more than 40 mpg on a 350-mile test.

Even more spirit is found in the Fiesta ST, a hot hatch, a pocket rocket with a 1.6-liter EcoBoost twin-turbocharged four, making 197 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque (in overboost mode). It uses a 6-speed manual gearbox, and features upgraded brakes, suspension, steering and tires. Fiesta ST is ready for a track day, something you can’t say about many subcompacts. Its competition there might be Mini Cooper S, Hyundai Veloster Turbo, or the larger Volkswagen GTI.

For 2016, there’s a new interface, Sync 3 replacing MyFord Touch for audio, connectivity, and navigation on a touchscreen or with by voice command. Otherwise, there are no significant changes.

The 2016 Fiesta gets four stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in frontal and rollover crash tests, with no side test or overall results yet. The 2015 Fiesta, identical to the 2016 model, got only two stars in the side-impact test and four stars overall. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives Fiesta its top Good results in large frontal, side, rear, and roof-strength tests. But in the small frontal offset test, like hitting a telephone pole, it achieves just a Marginal rating.


The 2016 Ford Fiesta comes in four-door sedan and five-door hatchback versions.

Fiesta S ($14,580) is the stripper, with roll-up windows and steel wheels with hubcaps, but it does have air conditioning. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.) Fiesta SE ($15,810) has better cloth interior.

Fiesta Titanium ($18,530) is the loaded one, with better Sony audio and a rearview camera. Fiesta SFE uses the new three-cylinder 1.0-liter engine. The hot Fiesta ST ($21,460) only comes as a five-door.


The hatchback is a crisp flowing wedge, and looks way better than the sedan. The wide-mouthed Ford grille makes it look macho. The rear pillar nips and tucks, as the taillights climb to the pillars.

If you don’t want anyone to look at you twice, get the sedan that looks tall and narrow. If you want them to stare get the ST, a hot hatch with a low stance, black honeycomb grille and big air dam, and wheels that mean business.


The first impression of the cabin makes the Fiesta look like a more expensive car, with quality fabric seats and coordinated colors and soft textures, as well as the 6.5-inch touchscreen of Sync 3. But after a while the standard seats feel a little flat and unsupportive, the back seat doesn’t fold flat, and there’s engine noise in the cabin.

So you climb into an ST, with available Recaro seats and Sound Symposer, piping the engine’s intake noise into the cabin, to create a sporty tone.

Driving Impressions

The Fiesta weighs 2600 pounds so it’s not quick, but acceleration is okay in the base 1.6-liter with the good five-speed manual transmission, and revs up. Zero to 60 in about 10 seconds. Meanwhile the 6-speed PowerShift automatic is a dual clutch that doesn’t do the job. It’s lazy on downshifts and clunky on upshifts.

The Fiesta reminds us of the original Mazda Miata, in that the driving dynamics are so good you think it’s faster than it really is. What the Fiesta is mostly all about is handling, with excellent steering and suspension tuning. The electric power steering system feeds back the feel of the road precisely, and makes the car responsive and nimble, while being secure for the freeway. The steering has Pull-Drift Compensation to help keep the vehicle going straight on crowned roads or in heavy crosswinds.

The ride finds some suspension flaws, however. The Fiesta can hop on rough surfaces, and it takes a nosedive under quick braking.

The one-liter three-cylinder engine is quicker and more efficient than the base four-cylinder. The tiny turbo has a distinctive exhaust note, a little howl that grows to a thrumming sound as revs increase. You have to shift a lot to run with the fast cars on the highway, as the torque is at a fairly high range, but the very fact that you can run with the fast cars is impressive and praiseworthy.

If you want to run with the really fast cars, there is the Fiesta ST. It’s for supercar dreamers with standard salaries. The suspension is lower and stiffer, the steering ratio quicker, brakes better, tires grippier, and there’s electronic torque vectoring to keep the maximum 214 foot-pounds of torque at the front wheels under reasonable control. But even at a low 1400 rpm, the engine makes 148 lb-ft, so casual acceleration is good too.


If it’s a subcompact five-door you need, it’s hard to think of a reason not to buy the Fiesta, in each of its guises: base, fun and eco, or hot rod, each one expressive and nimble. Wait, we just thought of a reason. The automatic transmission sucks.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
