2016 Ford Fiesta

Northway Ford Brantford, located between Hamilton & Cambridge

The 2016 Ford Fiesta is the perfect example of how an automaker evolves over the years. Introduced by Ford in Europe back in the 1980s, the Fiesta has a long and illustrious history. Even over here where we like them big, since its introduction in 2011 this little subcompact has been taken to our hearts.

2016 Ford Fiesta design

The design of the 2016 Ford Fiesta is modern, sharp and attractive. For such a small chassis, the panels of the Fiesta contain a lot of features. This new model echoes the design changes across all Ford models, with angular grille, shaped headlights, fluted panels, alloy wheels and a tight design that works whichever side of the Atlantic Ocean you might be on.

The cabin echoes this philosophy. Even though this is a subcompact, it doesn't feel like one inside. It also feels anything but cheap. The materials are top quality and put together well. Carefully selected trim adds character and that premium feel to the interior while the available technology is generous to say the least.

Passenger and cargo space is also surprisingly spacious given this cars size. Front passengers get the lion's share of space, but rear passengers get plenty and the hatch offers a practical way to carry your things. The sedan works too.

Engine and transmission

There are three engine options for the 2016 Ford Fiesta. The base engine is a 1.6-litre four cylinder that produces 120 hp and 112 lb-ft of torque. It uses either a five speed manual or six speed automatic transmission. There is also an optional 1.0-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine that is good for 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. It uses the five speed manual.

The Fiesta ST gets a turbocharged 1.6 that delivers 197 hp and 202 lb-ft of torque. A six speed manual is your only option here.

All engines are preppy and buzzing with energy. Even the base engine has enough power to zip around the city quite happily.

2016 Ford Fiesta trims
