Unlike buying a sports car or luxury cruiser, purchasing an economy car isn't usually an occasion to celebrate. Yet with belt-tightening just about everywhere you look, the virtues of value and fuel efficiency are becoming just as important and appealing as eye-watering acceleration and sumptuous comfort. Ford tapped into these potentially changing tastes with its subcompact Fiesta. Discover the ins and outs on used Ford Fiestas, available now in Carvana's inventory.
Fuel Efficient EcoBoost EngineThe Ford Fiesta comes standard with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that returns an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined (27 mpg city/37 mpg highway), but it's the EcoBoost engine which really makes the Fiesta an intriguing buy. The 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine not only gets 36 mpg combined (31 mpg city/43 mpg highway), but it also sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 8.9 seconds, which is not only a quicker than average time for the class, but also quicker than the split posted by the base four-cylinder model (0 to 60 mph in 9.5 seconds).
Sporty HandlingOver the years, the Fiesta has earned a reputation for being a sporty little vehicle. Its tight, responsive steering and agile feel provides the person behind the wheel with a little dose of excitement that may not be completely expected at first glance.
Well-Appointed InteriorDespite being Ford's most affordable car, the Fiesta actually offers some refinement in its cabin area. Not only are the materials of respectable quality, but the ambient lighting, heated leather seats, and premium audio system courtesy of Sony make the Fiesta appear as if it were a more expensive automobile.
Automatic TransmissionIn short, the Powershift automatic transmission available on the Fiesta is a bit cumbersome when shifting gears. Specifically, the transmission can be slow to respond to the driver in stop-and-go traffic, while also performing imprecisely during automatic gear shifts.
Cargo SpaceThe Fiesta is a subcompact vehicle, which by definition means it's rather short on space. How short? The Fiesta sedan offers 12.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the rear seats, while the hatchback model extends to only 14.9 cubic feet (large enough for three bags of golf clubs). With the rear seats folded down, the Fiesta provides just 26 cubic feet of storage.
EcoBoost Is Manual Transmission OnlyIf you were reared on automatic transmissions, the model options available for the Ford Fiesta may prevent you from pulling the trigger on this vehicle. As nice as the EcoBoost model is, it is only available in manual transmission.
