We have always owned Japanese and European compact and subcompact cars.
This time out, we were very impressed with the quality of the Fiesta, compared to the Hondas we considered, and bought the Ford.
The Fiesta has qualities more often found in European B cars, where a quiet, comfortable ride is achieved, along with an impressive driving experience and fuel efficiency.
This car is road worthy and fun to drive, which you would expect from this class of automobile.
But the most outstanding characteristic of this car, given its size, is it's exceptionally
quiet, smooth ride that is a real pleasure on long road trips.
Adults need a bit more legroom in the rear.
There is limited storage capacity in the cabin and the hatch area.
The entertainment system is very sophisticated and capable, but basic functions, like presetting radio stations, should be easier.
