Benefits of Driving a 2011 Ford Fiesta Sedan

The Fiesta offers a host of connectivity and tech features that aren't typically available in this budget-priced small-car class. Its 40-mpg EPA highway rating is also the best in its class, while the 6-speed PowerShift transmission is one of the most advanced of those in any small car. Ford says that it will offer best-in-class safety. Other features, including push-button start, aren't typically offered in its price class, while a wide range of potential customization and appearance options appeal to younger shoppers who want to express an individual style.

What's new for 2011?

The 2011 Ford Fiesta is a new model for the U.S. market this year, but in its present form the Fiesta has already been sold for several years in Europe. As a subcompact that's a little bit smaller than the Ford Focus--and about the same size as the Honda Fit, Nissan Versa and Chevrolet Aveo. The Fiesta aims at younger, tech-savvy small-car buyers, as well as those who are downsizing their cars, but who don't want to sacrifice features.

Model Strengths

  • Perky performance
  • segment-leading fuel economy
  • advanced PowerShift transmission
  • wide range of options and accessories
  • stylish interior
  • low base prices

Model Review

The Fiesta comes with a foundation for economical yet sprightly performance. Its 120-horsepower, 1.6L 4-cylinder engine features Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing, which enables smoother low-rev torque while also maximizing fuel economy, all with an EPA highway rating of 40 mpg. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, but the available 6-speed PowerShift transmission is unique in the class; the dry-clutch (twin-clutch) automated manual transmission helps improve both fuel economy and performance versus a traditional automatic.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
