The arrival of the 2014 Ford Fiesta is set to seriously spice up the rapidly expanding subcompact segment in Can

A 1.0L 3-cyl unit claims the best fuel economy of any non-hybrid car sold in North America

It’s all exciting stuff for small-car fans. Still, we can’t help being reminded of the saying that there’s nothing truly new under the sun

The 2014 Fiesta is not a full model change, but rather a comprehensive mid-life facelift for the existing architecture that has been on sale in Can since 2009

Ford hasn’t revealed official fuel-consumption data yet, but we’ve seen a figure of 4.3L/100 km combined for the European test

The 1.0 is projected to deliver 123HP and (with temporary over-boost) 148 lbft of torque

Never mind the engine, just feel the steering

I hope that this thing is built better than the original Fiesta which was runnier than a Campbell's soup can.

"...claims the best fuel economy..."

Claims who? Ford, like they did their C-Max and their Fusion Hybrids. Now they are paying C-Max customers back for "overstating" mpg. Cannot beleive any mileage claims anymore.
