2014 Ford Fiesta Hatchback Cargo Capacity Breakdown


The 2014 Ford Fiesta hatchback negotiates city streets and tight parking garages with ease; that's largely because the Fiesta is so small and spritely. The hatchback's small stature isn't as helpful when the time comes to load up the cargo area with goods, however.

2014 Ford Fiesta Review

Cargo space behind the rear seats measures in at a skimpy 14.9 cubic feet. The 25.4 cubic feet of total cargo space is also tiny for the class, and the rear seats don't fold into a flat cargo floor like many of its four-door hatchback competitors. Check out our cargo animation of the Fiesta to see what it looks like when golf clubs, suitcases and a stroller are stuffed into the hatchback.

2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost SFE: Quick Drive


Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays and I recently went for a quick spin in a 2014 Ford Fiesta equipped with the new turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, which boasts EPA gas mileage ratings of 32/45/37 mpg city/highway/combined. It is the latest of a trio of gas-only models hitting the market that nip at the heels of hybrid cars. The EcoBoost Fiesta proves remarkably drivable ... if you don't mind adjusting how you operate its five-speed manual transmission.

2014 Ford Fiesta ST Video

The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST is a veritable performance piñata, bursting with track-tuned treats when you hit the gas. Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek had a blast in the Focus ST's subcompact sibling; its 197-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder provided "blazing" quickness off the line, playful cornering and an engine sound other small sports cars should listen to and learn from. Everyday drivers: Take that racecar-inspired exterior styling as a warning that this car's milieu is the track. If you're OK with a rougher ride on the street, the Fiesta ST offers plenty to celebrate.

2014 Ford Fiesta Gets Fuel-Economy Boost


Ford's smallest car is getting a tiny new engine that packs a big fuel-economy punch. A turbocharged 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine is joining the Fiesta lineup midyear, and the EPA gave it a 32/45/37 mpg city/highway/combined rating.

The 123-horsepower engine is already available in other countries, but this is its first application in the U.S. Ford calls the 1.0-liter Fiesta "America's most fuel-efficient non-hybrid, gasoline-powered car," but the 75-hp Mitsubishi Mirage is rated at 37/44/40 mpg. However, competitors like the Honda Fit (27/33/29 mpg), Nissan Versa Note (27/36/30 mpg) and Chevrolet Sonic (26/35/30 mpg) all come up short by comparison.

Ford Focus on Pace to Retain Global-Sales Crown


For the first half of 2013, Ford is on track to hang onto its title as global-sales leader, and it has China to thank for the early lead. According to a Ford analysis of vehicle-registration data from automotive-industry information provider R.L. Polk, the Ford Focus was the best-selling nameplate in the world for the first half of the year, putting it in a good position to snag the title for a second consecutive year. Meanwhile, the Fiesta ranks as the fourth-best-selling vehicle overall, potentially giving Ford additional bragging rights of having the most-popular subcompact in the world, as well as the only automaker with two vehicles in the global top five.

According to Polk, Focus sales surged by 20 percent in the first half of the year compared with the same period in 2012, with 589,709 registrations. The spike is largely attributable to increased demand from China and other Asian nations such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand, Ford stated. "Focus in China is up 137 percent from 2012, to a total of 202,380 vehicles, making China the single biggest global market for the car with one-third of Focus sales," the automaker said in a statement.

2014 Ford Fiesta Cars.com Review


The 2013 Ford Fiesta wasn't very exciting, but a 2014 update brings a little fun to the party, says Cars.com reviewer Jennifer Geiger. More dramatic styling, nimble handling and excellent fuel economy should put the Fiesta at the top of subcompact car-shoppers' lists — as long as passenger room and cargo space aren't priorities.

2014 Ford Fiesta ST: More Photos


The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST — the new hot-hatch version of the subcompact car — injects some Euro-style excitement into the U.S. economy market with exciting performance courtesy of its 197-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder and sporty suspension and handling. The track-ready spirit extends to the Fiesta's aggressive styling, including a new grille, blacked-out headlights and 17-inch wheels. Inside, Recaro sport seats punctuate the performance point.

2014 Ford Fiesta Video

The 2014 Ford Fiesta's redesigned grille might make it look wider, but it won't feel that way inside. Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says effective use of subcompact space remains the Fiesta's least-fun attribute for both those in the backseat and the driver trying to maneuver without making inappropriate contact with the front passenger. And Mays has two words for those seats: "butt fatigue." Still, impressive power and handling make it feel like the Fiesta can party with the big boys. Watch the video.

Ford Wraps Fiesta in Bacon, Really


I'm a fan of bacon-wrapped dates and BLTs, but that's about as far as my pork-product love goes. Ford, however, is going much, much further. In anticipation of International Bacon Day on Aug. 31, the automaker is offering Fiesta customers several different bacon wraps for the subcompact's exterior.

If it was April 1, we'd be skeptical about this news, but it's true. The wraps are produced by Ford Custom Graphics and 3M Original Wraps. Prices start at $78.75 for mini strips, $191.25 for bacon racing strips and $318.75 for a side of bacon — two strips that wrap the rear wheel hubs. You'll have to really love bacon to get the full wrap, however; it'll run you $3,347.

Why bacon? "It's no secret that bacon inspires a lot of passion, and that's what the Fiesta celebrates. Our customers have a hunger for self-expression. Plus, it's just awesome to drive down the road in a piece of bacon," Liz Elser, Ford Fiesta marketing manager, said in a statement.

We wonder if the automaker has anything in store for Toasted Marshmallow Day (Aug. 30) and Cheese Pizza Day (Sept. 5).
