2011 Ford Fiesta S

2011 Ford Fiesta Review

(4 Stars)  A small car with style

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Ford is taking another shot at bringing a new vehicle into the subcompact market in the US. Smaller cars have not historically sold well in the United States, but with the recent economical downturn and the high price of gasoline, it is believed that Americans are more likely to be open to suggestions in this area now than ever before. The Ford Fiesta is offered in a five door hatchback version or a more standard 4 door sedan.

The mileage and low price may be the big selling points for this vehicle, which are 37-40 MPH and $13,320, but the technology gadgets made available on this model may be the real selling secret. The Fiesta is obviously geared towards a younger age group than other ford models, but it is the only model to offer some of high tech gadgetry at all. The Ford Sync ability is now becoming common of many vehicles from this car maker. One new option in the Fiesta is the Intelligent Access (with touch control) which allows you to open the door with a thumbprint scan and start the vehicle with a push of a button literally.
