Ford Fiesta Hatchback Interior & Cargo Rating

2019 Fiesta Hatchback Interior

The Fiesta hatchback is built sturdy; its panels and fixtures are all solidly put together and give off a tangible impression of refinement. That said, the Fiesta is no luxury vehicle, though many key touchpoints are tucked over with soft-touch trim. There are still many hard plastics and low-to-mid-quality materials used throughout the cabin, though. The seating upholstery is visually passable but is coarse to the touch and prone to wear. Nevertheless, seating is spacious and the general cabin layout is ergonomic. For such a compact vehicle, passenger room is ample, seating up to five if the rear seat occupants are smaller in stature. In terms of infotainment, the 4.5-inch screen in the SE and 6.5-inch touchscreen in the ST-Line are rather tacky and small, but overall functionality is excellent due to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, which is installed as standard in the ST-Line.

Seating and Interior Space

The Fiesta Hatchback provides seating for a total of five passengers, but only two adults will comfortably occupy the rear outboard seats; three children would manage without complaints in the back. The seats themselves are mediocre in comfort, with only light padding and mid-quality fabric upholstery that feels scratchy to the touch. Surprisingly, the Fiesta offers ample passenger room throughout the cabin with two adults at six-foot-tall able to happily occupy the rear seats. Getting in and out of the hatchback is also no problem and is easy to live with on a daily basis. The narrow roof pillars, large windshield, and rear window mean clear sightlines all-round while the standard-fit rearview camera adds an element of confidence in terms of visibility and safety. Though the driver's seat and steering column feature limited adjustability, finding an optimal driving position is no real challenge.

Interior Colors and Materials

Standard cloth upholstery for the SE is available in either Charcoal Black or Medium Light Stone, which can be upgraded to Charcoal Black Sport cloth with Silver stitching by adding the optional SE Appearance Package. For the sportier ST-Line, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are standard, with the steering wheel embellished by red stitching and the shifter boasting a metallic insert. Aluminum sport pedal covers and carpeted front and rear floor mats with red accent stitching are unique to the top-end trim. Seating is in Charcoal Black Sport cloth upholstery with Red stitching for the ST-Line, and bespoke embroidered badges feature on the front seats.

2019 Fiesta Hatchback Trunk and Cargo Space

With 14.9 cubic feet of room in the trunk, the Fiesta Hatchback offers more practicality than its sedan counterpart. With enough room for two large vacation-style suitcases, the Fiesta's 60/40 split-folding rear seats can be collapsed for more cargo room in the back; although the seats do not fold completely flat, leaving a stepped-up base to consider when loading, this is quite impressive for this segment - although the Kia Rio does have more available space in the trunk right off the bat.

In-cabin storage solutions are limited to a moderately spacious passenger-side glove box, dual cupholders up front, a single in the center rear, a front passenger seatback map pocket, and door side pockets on the front doors only - but at least these do fit bottles. There are a couple of small storage areas scattered around the front of the cabin as well, but none that are really able to hold items bigger than a smartphone.

2019 Fiesta Hatchback Infotainment and Features


Equipped as standard in both trims are four-way manually adjustable driver's seats, two-way manually-adjustable front-passenger seats, and 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Both trims also feature a steering column that can tilt and telescope, power windows and locks, standard air conditioning with electronic actuation, cruise control, and MyKey parental controls. Ice Blue cluster lighting and a rearview camera are added as well, and hill start assist is noted as the only active driver-assist feature installed as standard on both trims. For the ST-Line, multicolor ambient interior lighting is an exclusive benefit included as standard. Electronic automatic temperature control is optional for both trims.


The 4.2-inch screen in the SE trim is diminutive but runs the default SYNC infotainment software, which is somewhat limiting in terms of functionality. Although this software is quite user-friendly, there are better systems installed on rival vehicles. The standard six-speaker sound system delivers audio for the AM/FM stereo and in-dash single-CD player with MP3 capability, and the SYNC system does allow for SYNC voice controls and Bluetooth connectivity - but that's really about all there is to it. The media hub only includes a single smart-charging USB port, an auxiliary input, and a front and rear 12V power outlet. The ST-Line is upgraded to a 6.5-inch capacitive touchscreen featuring the SYNC 3 infotainment software, which comprises Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility along with enhanced voice controls, 911 Assist, Sync AppLink mobile app integration, and SiriusXM radio with a six-month all-access trial. Also for the ST-Line, and an additional smart-charging USB port is added. A voice-activated navigation system with pinch-to-zoom capability and integrated SiriusXM Traffic with Travel Link is available for both trims within the optional Cold Weather Package.
