The 2016 Ford Fiesta is Fun to Drive

Get ready to take off in the 2016 Ford Fiesta. This is no ordinary sub-compact. The Fiesta is both nimble and quick while being incredibly responsive. However, the Fiesta was built for more than performance. It was also designed to provide you with incredible comforts and high-tech features at an affordable price. Starting at just $14,090, qualified buyers can drive a brand new Fiesta for under $150 per month.

This is an incredible value for the money, especially when you consider that it is backed by Ford. You can buy one as a four-door sedan or a hatchback and both offer sleek modern lines along with safety features like seven airbags and a safety cage that is reinforced with steel.

Why People Love Driving the 2016 Ford Fiesta

It is fun to drive. In the sub-compact category many cars seem to be staid or rather boring but not the Fiesta. It was designed to be fun to drive and to offer the fun convenience features that drivers of larger and more expensive sedans tend to enjoy. Now, Ford is making it possible to enjoy those same benefits without paying a high price tag. Since it also has more leg room for the driver than other sub-compacts, the Fiesta has become beloved by tall people throughout the country.

2016 Fiesta Reviews

The Car Connection gave it high praise for a crisp and attractive exterior, superior steering, and strong features. The Fiesta is billed as a sporty sub-compact and that is exactly what you will get – a car that responds quickly when you need it to. The drawback to the Fiesta is that the backseats are not as large as some of vehicles in this category. However, if you are looking for a sporty and affordable ride and only occasionally drive three other adults, the backseat space should not be an issue. It still works well for children and the occasional backseat adult passenger.

If you want to feel as though you are driving a higher-end sub-compact, you may want to purchase one of the more expensive trim models. The Titanium, for example, has the backup camera and upgraded sound system similar to the 2015 Ford Fiesta.


The Fiesta also received high marks for its fuel efficiency. For a non-hybrid, the gas mileage is fairly remarkable. With 28 city and 36 mpg highway, you feel as though you are driving a hybrid and your bank account will reflect it. The affordability of driving a car with such high gas mileage can make a significant difference on a monthly budget.
