2012 Ford Fiesta S 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I've had my 2012 Fiesta hatchback 5-spd manual for about 15k and overall I am very pleased with the car. It has lots of technology features, and is a lot of fun to drive. The Fiesta feels solid and like a larger car when you're driving it, it does not feel cheap and insubstantial. The little 1.6 provides decent performance, it is not fast but does okay. The trade off for that is superb fuel economy. The 5-speed manual shifts great and the clutch is perfect. The interior is full of high quality, soft-touch materials and a great design. It is quiet and comfortable as well. The Fiesta makes you feel like you got more than what you paid.

Best Features

Gas mileage, handling, brakes, feature content, interior design and materials, ride comfort, road noise, price.

Worst Features

SYNC system can be frustrating to use and has had several hiccups since I've owned the car - it usually works well but not 100% of the time. Could use more power and a 6th gear, but not a huge deal. Some minor squeaks and rattles in the interior - materials are great but build quality is average.
