Starting at a little over $13,500, the value that you will receive for buying this car is phenomenal, especially since it provides you some creature comforts, while at the same time being an efficient way to get you from point A to point B.

When you start to figure in the value of your trade in if you have one, as well as other possible rebates, such as dealer loyalty rebates, or military rebates, you can end up getting a Ford Fiesta 2011 model for an even lower price. Comparing its price to other similar vehicles will show you that it is priced just right.

One of the nicest features on the Fiesta, if you decide to get the hatchback model, is the hatchback itself – which gives you much more cargo space and doesn’t limit what you can put into it like a trunk does. The drawback on the hatchback however is the price, as it costs another $2k-4k more than the standard version. To the people who can afford the extra costs, it does provide additional extra features and a much better design.

Ford Fiesta Fuel Efficiency

For a small car, getting 33 MPG is par for the course. Since there is such a drastic difference between city and highway driving (in the case of the Fiesta, it is about 9 MPG higher on the highway) it is important to think about what kind of driving you will be doing more of. If you are in a city and will be driving primarily around the city, you should be prepared to get around 29 MPG with your Fiesta, if you are going for longer trips where there aren’t as many stop lights, you can expect anywhere between 38-40 MPG depending on what kind of trim package you get.

Exterior Design

When you take a look at the Fiesta for the first time, you can immediately notice that it looks slightly different from other small cars. This is because Ford has engineered it to be more fuel efficient than other vehicles in its class, while at the same time giving it a nice curvy body which helps catch your eye and sets it apart from other cars.

The 2011 Ford Fiesta is a very noticeable car on the road. While some people might look at it in a negative light for being small, it is important to remember that with a slightly smaller size, you can still get a spacious interior while greatly increasing your fuel economy at the same time. When you add this to the low price of around $13,500, you’ve got a great deal on your hands, which is why Fiestas have been increasingly popular the past couple of years.
