The newest update of the 2014 Ford Fiesta brings some significant changes to this classic hatchback, both in terms of style and efficiency. So if you are looking for an affordable, quality vehicle that resembles a more expensive sedan, you should definitely consider the 2014 Fiesta.
2014 Ford Fiesta Exterior
New updates are mostly seen in the build of the exterior. Some of the most distinguishable exterior features are the new the new wide trapezoidal grille, and some angular hood lines that are incorporated into the hood instead of the last years round nose. Other optional features include some 17inch aluminum wheels, keyless-entry keypads and an abundance of paintjob colors to choose from.
2014 Ford Fiesta Interior
The new interior styling and design offer more of a premium look designated for a more upscale vehicle. Everything about the cabin design is highly pleasing, from the materials to the door panels. However, the comfort of the seats is questionable. They are stiff and flat, therefore not suitable for long distance drives, although, the optional heated seats improve the comfort significantly. As for the spaciousness, there is an ample amount of head and leg room for both the driver and his front seat passenger, but in the back with only 31.2 inches of legroom, adults might find it a little bit tight.
2014 Ford Fiesta Engine
Under the hood, the 2014 Fiesta offers a surprisingly quick engine, despite its smaller statue. The standard engine is the 1.6L 4-cylinder and optional are the two turbocharged EcoBoost engines. The 1.6L delivers 120 horsepower and an estimated EPA of 26-28 for the city and 25-36 for the highway. As for the turbocharged engines, the 999-cc cylinder EcoBoost 1.0 delivers only slightly more hp, but a lot more of torque, which is great for acceleration at some lower revs. The EPA for the EcoBoost is yet to be announced, but we can expect them to be highly favorable. The turbocharged engines come only with a manual transmission, a 5 speed and a 6 speed, while the standard engine comes as a 5 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic.
2014 Ford Fiesta Price and Release Date
The 2014 Ford Fiesta is available right now with a base price of $14,795 that is including the destination fee of $795. If you choose to add some of the optional packages, you can run up the price all the way to $21,400, but that still remains reasonable for such an all around great vehicle.
