Lease was up on my BMW 335. My better half got to choose the car this time: The Fiesta. Surprisingly enough, this car has some of the same features as the BMW (not just tires, bumpers...) heated leather seats, heated mirrors, keyless ignition, etc. The Sync system is very versatile and informative. The instrument cluster and dash layout are intuitive, though the Sync has a bit of a learning curve. The car does not drive as well as the BMW, but it takes road bumps at least as well (thank you BMW run flats). Except for the vast amount of space you get with the Fit, the Fiesta outperforms that vehicle in every way. The Fiesta is very quiet when compared to the Fit which is ridiculously loud.
Quietness for a car in this segment, abundance of available extra features, interior design, exterior lines, mood lighting options are fun, SYNC, gas mileage, lots of cup holders, numerous safety features, blind spot mirrors are wonderful, seat comfort
Add armrest , add heated backs (not just heat for the bottom), add lighted glove box, arrow above the "OK" button is awkward to reach, radio blasts on once a bluetooth call has ended, wish I could adjust the seat higher than it currently allows
