Today we are going to talk about Ford Fiesta which is a supermini sized vehicle produced by Ford Motor Company since Mid 70’s over seven generations. First, I want to give some information to you about the history of Fiesta. In Early 70’s Oil Crisis was one of the reasons about huge demand for small cars. Because of that, Ford Motor Company decided to produce a rivalry small car against BMC’s Mini. It codenamed as ‘Bobcat’ when Henry Ford II started development. The current Fiesta name belonged to General Motors at that time. General Motors gave Fiesta name freely to Ford Motor Company for using on their new supermini sized vehicle project. After some successful press leaks and speculations about Ford’s new car design, Fiesta was finally on display at 1976 Le Mans 24 Hour Race. Now we are going to analyse Ford Fiesta under three main categories which are; The Features of the Ford Fiesta, The Fuel Consumption of the Ford Fiesta and Is it Suits You?


The Features of the Ford Fiesta

Throughout time from first generation to present day Ford Fiesta was the sign of innovation and non-stop progress. Today Fiesta keeps the perfect quality of integration between innovative design and advanced technology. The New Fiesta coming with two official luxury option which are; Trend Package and Titanium Package and Ford keeps iconic hatchback design with little aesthetic touches such as, brand new strobe light design and smoother headlight and grill design. Also, we can say that New Fiesta has softer body lines than the old generations. It makes car look luxury and sympathetic. This body design also affects fuel efficiency positively with lightweight structure. Cockpit has some new technological advantages which is very useful. First, SYNC3 Multimedia System is an essential part of the car with Apple Car Play compatibility. You can use your iPhone with Siri effectively with voice control to prevent distraction while driving. Moreover, with clever cabin design, Fiesta provides more front and rear legroom than old generation Fiesta for driver and passengers. There are also other technological improvements for more safety and more comfort. For instance, in safety part we have Ford KeyFree System which detects the presence of your Key Fob and unlocks the doors. Hazard Warning Lights is another important improvement for safety features that warns other drivers with flashy strobe lights in an emergency brake situation. If we are going to talk about comfort features, we must say some words about Rear View Camera. When you choose the reverse gear the system automatically starts on display screen which shows the complete visual of the back side of vehicle. Also, we have some small technological details which gives a huge support for a comfortable driving experience such as; Hill Start Assist (which prevents the backward rolling when you make a hill start.), Cruise Control with Adjustable Speed Limiter (which make Ford Fiesta an Economical Fuel Consumption vehicle by using a system which let you determine the speed limit of the vehicle while you are driving.) and Driver Alert System (which track driver’s focus with sensors and warns the driver when he or she gets too distracted to drive.)


The Fuel Consumption of the Ford Fiesta

It’s time to talk about the economical side of the vehicle. Fuel consumption of course! Fuel efficiency is one of the most important criteria for a vehicle in today’s automotive industry. If your car not giving you the proper Fuel Consumption Performance, it will affect your wallet certainly. Luckily, Ford Fiesta is a real small sized MPG Saving vehicle. Fiesta has three standard engine option which are 1.0 EcoBoost, 1.1 and 1.5 TDCi. All these engines have Euro6 emission certificate. So, they don’t contaminate our world seriously.  We are going to examine this subject under two main categories which are Most Economical Engine and Most Powerful Engine. Let’s start with the economical one which is 1.5 TDCi. It is a four cylindered, 1499 cm3 sized Diesel type engine which produces 85 Horsepower and 3750 RPM Torque. It is not a performance engine, but you can save a lot of fuel by using this engine option in your Fiesta. The acceleration time of the engine from 0km/h to 100 km/h is 12.5 seconds. On the other hand, 1.5 TDCi performs a 3.5lt/100km (which refers to 81 MPG in UK) rate in Urban limits according to the factory data. However, this rate can decrease to 3.0 lt/100km (which refers to 94 MPG in UK) when you drive on the highway or long distance which is very economical. If we combine these two data, we get 3.2lt/100km (which refers to 88 MPG in UK) average fuel consumption data which is fair enough for a small sized vehicle. Finally, we are going to talk about the most powerful one which is 1.0 EcoBoost. This is a three cylindered, 998 cm3 sized engine which produces 140 Horsepower and 6000 RPM Torque. I highly recommend this engine type if you are in love with speed and performance. It accelerates from 0km/h to 100km/h in 9 seconds. 1.0 EcoBoost is also a greedy fuel consumer. It performs a 5.8lt/100km (which refers to 49 MPG in UK) rate in Urban. But at the highway or long distance this MPG rate decreasing to 3.8 lt/100km (which refers to 74 MPG in UK). If we combine these two data as usual, we get a 4.5lt/100km (which refers to 63 MPG in UK) average MPG performance.


Does it Suits You?

To summarize, in today’s analyse we seen that if you are looking for a car which has features such as; Economical Fuel Consumption, Low Budget Luxury and Comfortable Driving Experience, Ford Fiesta definitely suits you!
