The Fiesta is Ford's entry-level model. It is classified as a subcompact and competes directly with the class-leading Honda Fit. Offered in two configurations, as a sedan and hatchback and both will have a standard six-speed automatic transmission (a five-speed manual is also available). The standard engine will be a 1.6 liter four-cylinder with 120 horsepower. Ford will also be making available its EcoBoost four-cylinder offering, which will give the Fiesta the extra power needed to truly make the best in its class.
Ford is placing a big bet on the Fiesta and in an era where gas is getting more expensive, the Fiesta may just be the right car at the right time.
