Edmunds' Expert Review

The 2015 Ford Fiesta is a fun-to-drive small car, with a nicely trimmed cabin, excellent build quality and plenty of connectivity features. If you're looking for an economy sedan or hatchback that feels like a more expensive car than it really is, the Fiesta deserves serious consideration.

vehicle overview

Affordable to buy, cheap to operate and entertaining to drive are three of our primary criteria for a desirable economy car, and the 2015 Ford Fiesta has no problem scoring high on each. A classier-than-expected interior and fully up-to-date infotainment equipment only underscore our feeling that the Fiesta is a subcompact car that punches well above its price class.

We appreciate the fact that Ford doesn't seemingly penalize you for shopping the least expensive car in its showroom. Every Fiesta hits the streets with upmarket styling, a well-fitted interior with some unexpectedly nice finishes, plus an array of electronic must-haves such as Bluetooth phone connectivity and an iPod connector as standard equipment. And if you want your fuel-sipping Fiesta to coddle you like a car costing thousands more, available equipment that once was inconceivable in a subcompact model includes push-button start, a large touchscreen infotainment interface and heated seats, with or without leather.

At the fundamental level, though, those considering a subcompact car prioritize fuel economy and the 2015 Ford Fiesta exceeds expectations in this metric, too. Its zingy 1.6-liter four-cylinder may not be the most efficient in the segment, but its EPA-estimated 31 mpg in combined driving is still pretty frugal. There's also the delightful turbocharged "EcoBoost" three-cylinder, which improves both fuel economy and acceleration. There's also the sport-tuned Fiesta ST model, which is one of the best performance bargains around.

For these and other virtues, the Fiesta received an "A" rating from our editors, but know that the more spacious and practical Honda Fit also receives our top rating in this segment. Both are also top recommended cars in our 2015 Sedan Buying Guide. Other competitors didn't quite reach that pinnacle, but are nevertheless still worth consideration. The Chevrolet Sonic is just as rewarding to drive as the Fiesta, while the Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio are smart-looking choices with lengthy warranties and commendable value. All, unlike the Fit, are available as sedans and hatchbacks.

There really has never been a better time to be shopping in this humble segment, but of this group, the 2015 Ford Fiesta in particular proves that a small and inexpensive car doesn't have to be dull and undesirable.

2015 Ford Fiesta configurations

The 2015 Ford Fiesta is a subcompact car available in two body styles: a sedan and a four-door hatchback. Both are available in S, SE and Titanium trim levels. The high-performance ST model is available only as a hatchback.

The base S comes standard with 15-inch steel wheels, power locks and mirrors, air-conditioning, a height-adjustable driver seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, an auxiliary audio jack and various Ford Sync functions (iPod/USB audio interface, Bluetooth phone connectivity, voice controls, some app-based services and certain safety communications functions).

The Fiesta SE includes all of the above, plus 15-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, power windows, cruise control, upgraded cloth upholstery, a trip computer, metallic-painted interior trim, a front center console with armrest, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and multicolor ambient lighting.

The SE Appearance package adds 16-inch alloy wheels, foglamps, a rear spoiler (sedan), upgraded cloth seats, a leather-wrapped shift knob, the MyFord Touch interface with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and Sync Services (traffic updates and turn-by-turn directions), and satellite radio. The Comfort package includes heated front seats, heated side mirrors and automatic climate control. The SE is eligible for the Fuel Economy (SFE) package, which includes special tires, wheels and aerodynamic pieces to help the Fiesta achieve slightly better fuel economy, along with the further option of the EcoBoost turbocharged engine.

At the top of the Fiesta food chain is the Titanium trim, which essentially incorporates the contents of the SE Appearance and Comfort packages, but wears a different set of 16-inch wheels, plus chrome exterior trim and a black grille. It also has a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver seat lumbar adjustment, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment interface with MyFord Touch functionality, an eight-speaker Sony sound system and HD radio.

The Fiesta ST hatchback has all of the Fiesta SE amenities and features unique bodywork, foglamps, dual exhaust tips, a six-speed manual transmission, a sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch wheels with summer performance tires, quicker steering and upgraded brakes. Inside you'll find automatic climate control, keyless ignition and entry, a leather-wrapped shift knob, the MyFord Touch interface, the Sony sound system and HD radio, along with ST-specific cloth sport seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum-trimmed pedals, floor mats and door sill plates. The ST Recaro package adds heated Recaro front sport seats, leather and cloth upholstery and heated mirrors. Also available are gray-painted 17-inch wheels with red brake calipers.

A sunroof and a navigation system are stand-alone options on SE, Titanium and ST models.

2015 Highlights

There is some minor shuffling of content for the 2015 Fiesta and a new Performance Blue color available for the performance-focused Fiesta ST.

Performance & mpg

The base engine for the 2015 Ford Fiesta is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produces 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, but a six-speed "Powershift" automatic transmission is optional. Powershift is an automated manual transmission that shifts gears without any action needed from you, but is more efficient than a traditional automatic transmission.

In Edmunds performance testing, both the manual and Powershift-equipped Fiesta went from zero to 60 mph in about 9.5 seconds. That's average for a manual, but better than average for an automatic.

The EPA estimates fuel economy to be 31 mpg combined (27 city/37 highway) with the Powershift transmission. We achieved 33.4 mpg on our official Edmunds mixed-driving evaluation route. The manual transmission is barely lower at an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined (28/36). When you opt for the Fuel Economy package (automatic transmission required), the numbers edge up to 32 mpg combined (28/38).

The optional "EcoBoost" 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder produces 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. The five-speed manual is the only transmission available. In Edmunds performance testing, this mighty little engine brought the Fiesta from zero to 60 mph in 8.9 seconds, which is a quick time for the class. At the same time, it returns 36 mpg combined (31/43), matching the thriftiest cars in the class. We observed 37 mpg on the Edmunds evaluation route.

The 2015 Ford Fiesta ST's turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder pumps out 197 hp and an impressive 202 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is the only transmission offered. At the Edmunds test track the Fiesta ST sprinted to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds, making it easily the quickest car in its class. EPA estimates for the ST stand at 29 mpg combined (26 city/35 highway).

Safety

Every 2015 Ford Fiesta comes standard with antilock brakes (front disc, rear drum for non-ST models; four-wheel discs for the ST), traction and stability control, an integrated blind-spot mirror, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag. The newly standard Sync features include a 911 Assist function, which uses your paired cell phone to connect automatically to a 911 operator. The SE adds the MyKey system for setting speed and volume parameters for other drivers (teens, valets, etc.), while the Titanium model features a rearview camera and rear parking sensors.

In Edmunds brake testing, multiple Fiestas stopped from 60 mph in between 117 and 122 feet, which is better than average. The Fiesta ST stopped in just 112 feet, which is acceptable for a car with summer tires.

In government crash testing, the Fiesta received four out of five stars for combined overall protection, with four stars for frontal protection and two stars for side crash protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Fiesta the top rating of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests. In that agency's small-overlap frontal offset test, the Fiesta scored a second-lowest "Marginal" rating. The Fiesta's seat/head restraint design was rated "Good" for whiplash protection in rear impacts.

Driving

If you appreciate sharp, nimble handling and like similar traits in steering, the 2015 Fiesta will be a standout on your consideration list. Although the Fiesta isn't necessarily "fast" by most measures, the car's quick steering and well-controlled body motions encourage you to maintain momentum and make the Fiesta seem faster than its numbers suggest. The quiet cabin and well-tuned suspension also help the Fiesta feel stable and secure when you're driving on the highway.

The standard Fiesta's 1.6-liter four-cylinder is plenty good for zipping around town and daily suburban errands, and it revs as sweetly as any engine of this size. The Powershift automatic transmission, which is essentially a manual gearbox that operates the clutch for you, gets the most power possible out of the engine and aids fuel economy, but you may find its behavior odd – especially when creeping forward or when it rolls back slightly on hills.

If you're willing to row your own gears, the EcoBoost three-cylinder engine is a gem, delivering excellent fuel economy and acceleration. It's well worth the extra cost. For true, outright fun, though, the Fiesta ST is one of the best performance bargains on the market. The Fiesta's inherent agility is turned up to 11, while its turbocharged four-cylinder produces easily accessible power and a snarling engine note. In some ways, it's even more fun to drive than the bigger and pricier Focus ST.

Interior

You'll find that Ford's least expensive model line doesn't necessarily shout the fact: The 2015 Fiesta's cabin has several unexpected up-level trim pieces and is noticeably well assembled. Metallic accents spruce up what many expect to be a monotone black, while available premium touches – ambient lighting, heated leather seating, a touchscreen infotainment system and navigation, for example – definitely stave off the "economy car" aura many might expect from the Fiesta's interior.

The standard Sync system allows voice control over the audio system and your cell phone, and it also provides such features as voice-prompted turn-by-turn navigation and emergency assist. Pairing the Sync system to your phone and getting it set up is difficult, and besides its Bluetooth phone capability, we generally find ourselves using Sync as a work-around for the standard, form-over-function radio interface. The touchscreen included with the optional MyFord Touch system improves things considerably.

Interior space is generous up front, with a driver seat that easily adjusts for a wide range of driver heights. The backseat is definitely on the tight side, however, even for this pint-sized segment. The Fiesta sedan has a decent trunk capacity of 12.8 cubic feet, and the hatchback's space behind the rear seats is a tad bigger at 14.9 cubic feet. You can fold the rear seats down, but the maximum capacity of 26 cubic feet is still skimpy for a subcompact hatchback.

The ST's interior has a bit more style, with available two-tone color schemes and includes virtually the entire Fiesta option book. The optional Recaro sport seats with their large side bolsters wrap around and hug both front occupants. As such, they hold you securely in place while you're hustling the ST along a curvy road. But those aggressive bolsters make getting in and out of the car a little harder, and larger folks may find the seats uncomfortable on long trips.

Best car I've ever driven
jrazem,04/26/2015
I only drive fun cars. I used to drive a '06 Audi S4, my wife drives a BMW 335i with the sports package, and after reading so many glowing reviews of the Fiesta ST, I decided to give one a spin and then easily decided to replace my Subaru WRX STi. The Fiesta ST is not only better than all those cars but also far cheaper. There aren't many instances where you can replace something more expensive with something less expensive and have a better product in the end, but this is one of those times. The Fiesta ST actually does live up to its hype - it is that good. If you enjoy driving and love fun to drive cars, there is no more fun that can be had in any other car - no matter the price.
Great Performance with some reliability issues.
Keppa Max,04/11/2016
First off, if you're looking for affordable performance with practicality, this car is difficult to beat. The passing power of this thing will surprise you - it surely surprised me. Not of caution: 1) it's small, so don't get it if you need the space; 2) its ride is on the harder side, so beware if the roads in your area are crumbling and take it for a test drive first; 3) also test drive the Recaro package before you buy it - it doesn't work for everyone as in my case it was very uncomfortable. Biggest gripe: Reliability & Fit an finish. I try to remind myself that this is, basically, still a Fiesta econo-box, but some door gaps are wider than others, paint defects are present from factory, multiple visits to dealership for warranty work. Unacceptable for a less than 2 year old car. The big question: would I buy a new one after the current one I have has run its course? I'd say it's not likely.
Best driver's car under 30k
12sectruck,11/20/2014
First a little background. I am 47 yrs old. I have owned and driven many so called performance vehicle, many of which have been Fords. I still own a 2001 F-150 Lightning which I purchased in 2001 and has around 500 rwhp. I was driving a MKV GTI with stage 1 as my daily driver for the last 2 yrs. The warranty was almost up so I started looking. Since I have an hr. Commute each way to work, my main priorities were fun to drive and decent gas mileage. My price range was around 30k. My first choice was the Focus ST. Then got my car & driver mag and see the Fiesta ST received 6th place. Time for another test drive! That was all it took! A little less room but 4k cheaper and more smiles!! SOLD
Feels like a MUCH larger car
Ted Schmitt,07/30/2015
First, I will preface this by saying that I traded a Miata for the Fiesta ST, so yes this car feels MUCH larger than it is. I bought the ST with the Recaro package, and I can understand how some people would say that the seats are uncomfortable, especially if the person is of larger size (I'm 5-9 and 175lbs). These seats grip you like velcro in ALL situations, especially hard cornering - try them BEFORE you buy the car. I love them, but I drive "enthusiastically". They take some getting used to in the getting in/out process and I can easily understand how some would hate them. I'm 54, and after a Miata they are really NO problem. The 6-speed manual transmission shifts like rowing a knife through honey, with very smooth clutch action although it does engage a bit close to the floor (this might change with more wear). The 8-speaker stereo does sound a bit tinny or thin on sound, but money spent with Crutchfield will fax that eventually. The exhaust note, while louder than lesser Fiestas, is not quite as "racy" as it could be given this car's mission, but that is entirely my opinion. Handling is top-notch (again, I came from a Miata), being extremely smooth and predictable. Corners can be taken at MUCH higher speeds than you think the car will handle due to the roll stability control (which can be switched off); you would swear it was rear-wheel-drive with gobs of grip. The car car has numerous safety-related add-ons, none of which I will address here - I didn't buy the car for being safe. If you're considering it, check out Ford's website or Edmunds for the list of standard safety equipment. The best thing about this car? Turbo power. The rush from the Ecoboost engine is absolutely ADDICTING. That, combined with the engine sound coming into the cabin will have you feeling and driving like you're back in high school (and I mean that is a good thing). Bottom-line, if you want some "civilized" performance while being able to carry three passengers and you want to buy a domestic car (yes, I know the Fiesta is assembled in Mexico) with top-notch quality, your search ends here.

Should I lease or buy a 2015 Ford Fiesta?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
