This car offers plenty of exciting features, but is it right for you? Check out our comprehensive 2018 Fiesta car review to learn about the most important features found in this vehicle.
Performance and Fuel Efficiency
The base engine on the Fiesta is a 4-cylinder, which provides 120-horsepower and accelerates well off the starting line. With this engine, you’ll have the choice of a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. For a bit more power and peppiness for highway driving, try out the turbocharged EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine on the Fiesta ST. This provides 197-horsepower while conveniently handling every curve on the road.
With the 6-speed automatic transmission, the base edition of the Fiesta offers 27 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway. Solid performance like that means fewer trips to fill up at the pump. The powerful Ford Fiesta turbocharged engine delivers 26 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway, letting you drive further without having to stop as often for gas.
Ford Fiesta Technology
Backing up is easier in the Ford Fiesta thanks to the standard rearview camera with full-color imagery. This camera will display a full-color image on the screen in the center stack area. SYNC® 3 technology lets you keep your hands on the steering wheel while handling voice-activated requests. With this technology, enjoy Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability to utilize maps to navigate to your destination, read text messages or play songs.
You can upgrade from the standard 4.2-inch color LCD screen to the larger 6.5-inch touchscreen in higher trims, which also include smart-charging USB ports to keep your linked smartphone powered while driving. The available Intelligent Access key fob is another convenient tech feature. As long as the key fob is in your pocket, all you need to do is touch the door handle to gain entry. Then, just press the brake pedal and push the start button to turn the car on. There’s no need to ever take the key out of your pocket.
Interior and Cargo Space
There’s easy access to the rear cargo area with the hatchback version of the 2018 Fiesta. When folding down both sides of the 60/40 split rear seat, you’ll have up to 25.4 cu. ft. of cargo space for your important items. Sedan models are impressive in their own right carrying 12.8 cu. ft. of trunk space along with the split rear seat.
Space-wise, there’s plenty of room for taller passengers in the Fiesta. Those riding in the front can enjoy up to 43.6 inches of legroom and 39.1 inches of headroom. Heated seats are also available to make rides more comfortable on those cold mornings and chilly nights.
