Ford offers you again one of its affordable compact car offerings, the 2014 Ford Fiesta. The Fiesta seeks to compete with the other budget compacts offered out there, like those from Asian brands. The Fiesta seeks to outdo them with better styling, particularly on the inside. The 2014 Ford Fiesta takes pride in what it offers inside. Cargo space is pretty decent – 12.8 ft3 for the Fiesta sedan and 14.9 ft3 for the Fiesta hatchback which can be expanded to a maximum 25.4 ft3. Passenger space is also just about enough; head and leg room are just about right for tall adults. It is the interior design of the Fiesta which earned the praise of critics. Materials used are very great looking. The optional leather upholstery used on the seats look pretty great. The soft touch materials found on the surfaces of the armrest, steering wheel and the console lid are excellent.

The 2014 Ford Fiesta comes in three trim levels – S, SE and Titanium. Base interior features include air-conditioning, power locks, a tilt-telescoping steering wheel, and a 4-speaker audio system with auxiliary audio jack. More interior features are available on the higher trims like keyless ignition/entry, power windows, cruise control, leather upholstery, heated seats, and more electronic features like Ford Sync with voice controls and smartphone integration, satellite radio, and a trip computer.

The standard engine of the 2014 Ford Fiesta is a 1.6L engine. It has an output of 120 horsepower and 112 lbs. of torque. There is also the EcoBoost powertrain which comes in two variations. The turbocharged 1.0L EcoBoost has an output of 123 horsepower and 148 lbs. of torque. There also the EcoBoost 1.6L that has an output of 197 horsepower and 214 lbs. of torque.

The 2014 Ford Fiesta has great ride quality. Steering and handling are responsive and accurate, especially with the Fiesta’s sophisticated and tuned-up suspension. Overall, the ride experience in the Fiesta is composed and controlled.
