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.

Introduction

The Ford Fiesta subcompact is fun to drive, having impressive steering and handling, with a nimble and maneuverable feel. Its design is bold and spunky, at least in the popular five-door hatchback. There’s also a four-door sedan that looks ungainly and skinny compared to the five-door. There’s a sporty turbocharged ST five-door with tweaks that make it look stylish and a bit racy.

Base engine is a 1.6-liter four cylinder making 120 horsepower that isn’t quick but feels peppy enough with the 5-speed manual transmission if you keep the revs up. The Fiesta only weighs 2600 pounds so that helps. There’s also an available 6-speed dual-clutch automatic manual that we don’t much like.

There’s also a tiny 1.0-liter three cylinder, that with turbocharging makes 123 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. We find this engine enjoyable. You have to keep the revs up, and if driven aggressively it can win fans. It was designed to be a fuel miser, and is especially popular in Europe. We got 41.9 miles per gallon on a 350-mile road trip that was two-thirds highway and one-third city.

The Fiesta ST is a true pocket rocket. Its 1.6-liter turbocharged engine makes 197 horsepower and 214 impressive pound-feet of torque, in its overboost mode. It comes only with a 6-speed manual transmission, and has performance improvements to the suspension, steering and brakes. It rides on summer performance tires, and is a blast to drive.

For 2017, the only major change is to the top Titanium model, which loses its manual transmission and gets the PowerShift 6-speed twin-clutch automatic manual.

The 1.6-liter engine is EPA-rated at 28 city, 36 highway and 31 combined miles per gallon with the manual transmission. The overachieving 1.0-liter three cylinder gets about 5 mpg more, at 31/43/36 mpg with the 5-speed. The ST gets 26/33/29, pretty darn good for a hotrod.

The NHTSA gives the Fiesta four stars overall in crash tests, with five stars for side impact. The IIHS gives it the best Good score in large frontal, side, rear, and roof-strength tests. In the small frontal offset test it earns a Marginal rating.

Lineup

The 2017 Ford Fiesta comes in S, SE, Titanium, and ST models.

Fiesta S sedan ($13,660) and hatchback ($13,960) are very basic, with rollup windows and 15-inch steel wheels with hubcaps, but at least they have air conditioning, and Bluetooth, a 6-speaker sound system, and adjustable steering wheel. The 5-speed manual is standard, and three-cylinder engine costs another $1000. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Fiesta SE hatch ($15,190), comes with fabric upholstery but of a higher quality, while adding power windows, cruise control, keyless ignition, ambient lighting and theft alarm.

Fiesta Titanium ($18,950) adds leather, heated seats, automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, a Sony audio system, and the more sophisticated Sync 3 infotainment system.

Fiesta ST ($21,140) is equipped like the SE, except with all the sporty things, such as sport seats, black interior trim, aluminum pedals, black headlamp rims, a tall spoiler, special bodywork, and 17-inch alloy wheels. This in addition to the mechanical upgrades to the engine, suspension, steering and brakes. Options include Recaro seats.

Seven airbags are standard, but, stunningly, a rearview camera is only available on the Titanium, as an option.

Walkaround

The Fiesta five-door has a crisp profile, with a wedge shape and arched roofline. The headlamps sweep back into the fenders, while a wide mouth with low fascia makes it look almost mean, for a subcompact.

The proportions aren’t the same with the sedan. Definitely not crisp. Its long body and short greenhouse make it look tall and narrow from every angle.

The ST brings it all together, emphasizing the confident lines with an aggressive air dam and black mesh grille, along with a low stance on chunky wheels, and cross-patterned rear diffuser with twin exhaust tips.

Interior

The cabin hasn’t changed much since the Fiesta joined us seven years ago, and it shows. The plasticky feel lingers, and the infotainment screen isn’t integrated. Other subcompacts have managed to find more interior room with their redesigns, but the Fiesta still feels cramped and busy inside, with too many switches and knobs on the dash.

The S model seats are flat and unsupportive, although we can’t think of any subcompact with good seats in their model that’s stripped for the sake of low entry cost. And the driving position itself is excellent. The SE seats have better fabric and contours, but still feel like bar stools. And like in a bar, you might be rubbing elbows with the person next to you. The optional $2000 Recaro seats on the ST are great, but for two grand we expect no less than greatness.

In back, legroom and headroom are very tight; three adults don’t fit. And the 60/40 rear seats don’t fold flat.

There isn’t anywhere near the amount of cargo space in the rival Honda Fit, for example. The Fiesta offers 26 cubic feet, while the Fit has twice that. At least the sedan has a good-sized trunk, with 12.8 cubic feet.

Thank heaven for small things. The soft-touch materials on the dash and doors, around the plastic, are fine. And the Sync 3 system, with its 6.5-inch touchscreen, is a feature you might expect on a more expensive car. The cupholders are well placed, and there are plenty of small storage bins. The cabin is also fairly quiet for a subcompact, with a sound blanket under the hood to dampen the coarse-sounding engine, and a laminated windshield.

The ST goes the other way, with piped-in intake noise. In that car, we like it.

Driving Impressions

With the base engine and fine 5-speed gearbox, it takes some work to be happy with the performance; you have to keep the revs up because there isn’t a lot of torque. But at least you can find that happiness, at least, if you can ever be happy with ten seconds from zero to sixty miles per hour. But don’t forget, it’s an engine that can get 36 highway miles per gallon.

For us, it’s harder to be happy with the higher-tech 6-speed twin-clutch automatic manual transmission. It doesn’t always downshift promptly or upshift as smoothly in the lower gears as an automatic transmission. We’d say it does a poor impression of an automatic, with these clunky and poorly timed shifts.

Not unlike the original Mazda Miata, the Fiesta’s good steering and suspension tuning makes it feel hotter than it really is. The electric power steering is just right, in its weight and feedback. The Fiesta is nimble, responsive, and secure on the highway.

At least it’s secure on a smooth highway. With a short wheelbase, the Fiesta tends to hop over rough pavement, and the nose dives under hard braking.

If 120 horsepower and 36 highway mpg is okay with the base engine, 123 horsepower (with more torque) and 43 highway mpg seems worth $1000 extra for the three-cylinder turbo. It has a distinctive exhaust note, to boot; three-cylinder engines tend to howl. You still have to shift a lot to run with the fast guys, but it’s fun.

But for real fun, it’s the 197-horsepower, 1.6-liter turbocharged Fiesta ST. And since it comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission, there’s no twin-clutch downside (but there’s also no upside, for those who would like an automatic). Its 214 pound-feet of torque comes at just 1400 rpm, so response is always there. When you add a lowered and stiffened suspension, rear disc brakes, quicker steering ratio, and torque vectoring to minimize if not erase torque steer, the ST can easily take on the Mini Cooper S, Hyundai Veloster Turbo, and Volkswagen GTI.

Summary

Each Fiesta hatchback model has its virtues. The ST offers superb value in a pocket rocket. The 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo offers superb value in a spirited high-mileage car. But we say avoid the 6-speed twin-clutch transmission with its problematic shifting, which leaves you with a standard manual. And the interior is tiny.

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.

Options

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.
