They say that it’s what’s on the inside that counts and it couldn’t be more true about the 2016 Ford Fiesta. No one would argue against this car's sleek and sporty exterior, but under the hood is where the magic truly happens for the Fiesta. Read on to discover why you should consider a used model for your next vehicle.
An Edmunds review describes the Fiesta driving experience as entertaining with its responsive steering and well-controlled body motions. Even when you’re living out your racing fantasies, the cabin of the Fiesta remains quiet, thanks to its top of the line noise cancellation and agile suspension.
The Fiesta’s base engine is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque. However, manual transmission enthusiasts can opt for the 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which delivers 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. For those seeking a bit more spice, there’s the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder which cranks out 197 hp and a hefty 202 pound-feet of torque.
With fuel prices on the rise, you want to visit the gas station as little as possible. The base engine of the Fiesta gets a noteworthy fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, which means you spend less time (and money) at the pump and more time on the road. The efficient EcoBoost engine gets 36 mpg combined and the turbocharged engine gets 29 mpg combined.
