As the final year before the next redesign is scheduled, the 2015 version of the Ford Fiesta has all the bugs worked out that would normally come with a newly redesigned vehicle and offers as close to a perfect car as the Fiesta can be. Offering a sleek European look the Fiesta is easily one of the most versatile vehicles on the market. The car can be had in either some very stylish and fun colors for the inside or out and for mild mannered owners the car can also be had in much more common colors, but expecting the Fiesta to fit in is too much to ask of this great car.
Because this car is not being changed for the final year, the Fiesta still offers the sporty ST model and the fuel-efficient 3-cylinder engine that allows owners choices when arming their Fiesta with equipment and selecting between some quick power and fuel efficiency. The Fiesta is certainly a modern car with and upscale interior that is very stylish and fun as well as the very sporty look to give any owner a fun and easy to love car.
As a European inspired car the Fiesta is an absolute joy to drive. Packed with a highly tuned suspension and quickly responsive steering system this car can take on any road and spit it back out with ease. All engines this car can be fitted with offer plenty of power for the car to zip around town or easily pass in highway traffic. All this put together allows the Fiesta to be a great car to drive and offer each owner plenty of fun no matter what they choose the function of the car to be.
With three engine offerings on the Fiesta, this is a Ford that has a car for every car shopper out there. The standard engine comes in a 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine that brings in 120 horsepower and 112 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine can be had with either a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The manual pairing with bring 27 city/38 hwy mpg and the automatic offers 29 city and 39 hwy mpg to enjoy.
The second engine offered is the 1.0-liter turbocharged inline three-cylinder engine that is even more powerful than the base engine with 123 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque. This fuel-sipping engine gets partnered with a five-speed manual transmission that brings in a fantastic 32 city/45 hwy mpg. This is one of the most fuel efficient models on the road and takes the Fiesta into 2015 with what many car shoppers have been clamoring for; great fuel mileage.
Finally, the ST models will receive a powerful 1.6-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that brings 197 horsepower and 202 lb.-ft. of torque to allow this car to go screaming down the road. For this engine Ford paired it with a six-speed manual transmission that offers a still strong fuel efficiency of 26 city/25 hwy mpg. For those looking to enjoy some serious power along with a decent amount of fuel efficiency this is the powertrain to choose.

Adding a wide variety of optional equipment can also help make this car almost feel like a higher end model instead of a subcompact.
For the outside the Fiesta can be had in either a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback. In either form the car offers a unique style that looks very much European and American combined. The front of the car offers a view of very handsome wrap around headlights and a wide-mouthed grill that is gritty and full of guts on the road. The hood-to-roof angles are smart and easy to enjoy as well as a very interesting belt line that runs the length of the car. Add to all of this the massively spoked wheels that can be had in a 17-inch size if desired.
Starting out with a base model Fiesta S the standard features offers include air conditioning, a four-speaker audio system with an auxiliary port and SYNC, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and the five-speed manual transmission. All models come with the electronic stability control and seven airbags that include a driver’s side knee airbag.
