2017Ford Fiesta For Sale In Wetaskiwin
The term "sub-compact" can sometimes conjure up all sorts of ideas of compromises that just have to be accepted so you can enjoy the small footprint and impressive fuel economy that's a big part of the deal when you buy into that segment. It's not unfair to think that way either when you look at some cars on offer, but this idea of settling for things is way off the mark when it comes to the 2016 Ford Fiesta. This sensational little car is as small and economical as you'd want it to be, but that's only the starting point for the Fiesta. When you examine the offer further, you'll quickly start to see that it's also beautifully put together, extremely attractive, and tons of fun to drive in all its forms.
In the case of the 2016 Ford Fiesta, there's no compromise as far as choice is concerned either, with both sedan and hatch body styles, three outstanding powerplants, four different trims and no less than three transmissions. If you're shopping for a new car in its segment, there's every chance there a model in the Fiesta lineup to meet your needs.
A 1.6-litre four-cylinder unit is the standard engine on offer, which develops a perky 120 horsepower and 112 lb.-ft. of torque and comes mated to either a five-speed manual or a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Entry level S trim only comes with the 1.6, but the higher trims of SE and Titanium can also be specified with the globally award-winning, three-cylinder, 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine. This staggeringly well regarded little engine puts an impressive 123 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal, and it has a five-speed manual transmission to further enhance its fun-to-drive characteristics. For the most power available for the 2016 Ford Fiesta you'll have to opt for the sporty ST version, which packs a real punch courtesy of its exceptional 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine that gets you as much as 197 horsepower and 202 lb.-ft. of torque, which is quite a bit in such a compact package.
The Fiesta was actually developed by Ford for its European markets, where a considerable number of the roads were originally designed with types of transportation in mind that had legs and ate hay instead of those with four wheels that drink gas. This therefore meant the car was designed to cope with the narrowest of twisty roads, and the result is it deals with such circumstances pretty much better than anything else in its class. If you're shopping for a small, economical car but driving enjoyment is still a big priority for you, the 2016 Ford Fiesta really is the car to choose.
If you're not aware, the cost of filling up a car in most of Europe is pretty astronomical, so outstanding fuel economy is easily one of the biggest attributes the Fiesta brought with it when it made the journey across the Atlantic. The normally aspirated 1.6-litre therefore returns figures of 8.5 L/100 km in the city and 6.5 L/100 km on the highway in its manual form, and 8.7 L/100 km and 6.4 L/100 km for city and highway driving respectively, with the automatic transmission option. The sensational 1.0-litre EcoBoost improves those ratings even further to 7.5 L/100 km in the city and 5.5 L/100 km on the highway.
The Fiesta has been nothing but a total success story for Ford since it made its debut in Europe way back in 1976. The only thing that's hard to understand is why it took until 2010 for it to go on sale over here. The message is simple then; a fantastic car is a fantastic car, whatever market you're talking about
