The festival premiered in 2010 and this year, the Festival receives more praise: We named it the 2011 Best subcompact car for the money.
Ask any car lover and you say, some of the best small cars in the world never make it in America. With the 2011 Ford Fiesta, that changed. On sale in Europe since 2008, the latest iteration of the festival has finally arrived in dealerships in the U.S. AutoWeek says: “The Fiesta is a small car that can be found, from anywhere in the world. That is the Blue Oval is remarkable and encouraging, its brightness is the first ray of sunshine in what has been a apparently midnight horizon”.
Adding eyes to the 2011 Ford Fiesta face are sweeping, elongated headlamps that frame and connect the hood to muscular, sculpted front fenders. Available in sporty five-door hatchback or four-door sedan body styles, Fiesta provides ample space for occupants and their gear.
At the rear of the 2011 Ford Fiesta, many design elements merge, including the chamfered rear liftgate glass, the low roofline sweeping into a spoiler and dramatic taillamps with honeycomb detailing mounted high in the five-door’s corners. Muscular rear quarter panels, wrapped tightly, draw the eye to the wheels and Fiesta’s confident stance.
2011 Ford Fiesta features first-row bucket seats with a 60/40 split second-row seat. Cloth or leather seating surfaces vary by trim level offering comfort, style and individuality. High series Fiestas also offer leather with sporty contrast accent color piping.
Soft, sculptured surfaces and the centerstack layout provide the Fiesta with a sense of harmony. Intuitive switchgear placement, comfort zone seating and available ambient lighting allow a driver to maximize the mood with seven complementary colors – switchable among three levels of intensity – for interior accent lighting. And Fiesta keeps it green; 25 percent of volume-series SE seat fabric inserts are comprised of recycled content
The 2011 Ford Fiesta features a 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine that is rated at 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque. This four-banger features Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT), which allows smaller displacement for increased fuel economy without compromising performance. Ford also makes use of an aggressive deceleration fuel shutoff, combined with an engine accessory drive system that was designed to improve efficiency by reducing the energy it takes to power the air conditioner and alternator. When coupled with electric power assist steering, the small gains translate to measurable gains in fuel economy.
Ford only offers the hatchback starting in SE guise – bypassing the base S trim level available on the Fiesta Sedan – starting with a base price of $15,120. The range-topping SES Hatchback carries an MSRP of $17,120. Moving to the class exclusive dual-clutch dry transmission complete with six forward moving gears, dubbed “Powershift” by Ford adds about $1,000 to the price.
