The NHTSA's review of the 2019 Ford Fiesta resulted in an overall crash-test rating of four out of five stars. The IIHS gave the car top ratings of Good for four of five of the standard crash test criteria but scored it poorly for LATCH car seat usability.
The Ford Fiesta, as a family car, is short on active safety features and advanced driver-assists at its default level, and unfortunately does not have any optional safety-related add-ons. All 2019 Ford Fiesta models come with seven standard airbags, including a driver knee airbag. A rearview camera is also standard in all models, along with a front occupant personal safety system, tire pressure monitoring, SOS post-crash alert system, and AdvanceTrac electronic stability control. The Fiesta SE is the only trim that comes standard with cruise control.

There are currently no recalls out for the 2019 Ford Fiesta Hatchback and only a small range of driver complaints to date, mostly pertaining to a variety of minor problems. J.D Power, however, gave the 2019 Ford Fiesta Hatchback a below-average predicted reliability rating of two-and-a-half out of five. Ford covers the Fiesta Hatch with a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage, as well as a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. A roadside assistance plan for the same five-year/60,000-mile period applies.
