2014 The Honda Fit has long been among the most reliable cars in our survey. The Fiesta has a patchier record. This said, getting the manual in the Ford alt least avoids the problematic dual clutch transmission. full 2014 Ford Fiesta review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Ford Fiesta

2015 Ford Fiesta Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 The ostensible point of a three-cylinder engine is superior fuel economy. Fewer cylinders generate less friction. On top of this, the Fiesta's new engine is smaller, just one liter compared to the regular Fiesta's 1.6 and the Fit's 1.5. It is turbocharged to compensate for this size difference. The payoff: EPA ratings compared to the regular Fiesta improve from 28 mpg city, 36 mpg highway to 31 and 43, respectively. With a manual transmission, the Honda rates just a bit better than the regular Fiesta, and well short of the Fiesta EcoBoost on the highway: 29/37. But fit the Fit with a CVT (continously variable transmission), and its ratings roughly match those of the manual-only Fiesta EcoBoost: 33/41. In real-world driving, the Fiesta EcoBoost's fuel economy varies widely depending on how much you exercise the turbo. The trip computer reported suburban averages as high as 51.7 mpg, and as low as 28.6. When I drove the car casually but without care to maximize fuel economy, the trip computer reported about 37 mpg. With some care, about 45. Very good, certainly, but some other small cars with less expensive, more conventional engines (such as the Nissan Versa Note, EPA 27/36 with a manual but 31/40 with a CVT) are about equally good. full 2014 Ford Fiesta review

2014 If I had six or seven "why to buys" to work with, fuel economy would be among them. The Fiesta ST is rated 26 mpg city, 35 mpg highway. The heavier, more powerful Focus ST comes in three lower on each. The Veloster Turbo? 24/35 following Hyundai's semi-voluntary downward revision. The JUKE, with its taller body, iffier aerodynamics, and shorter gearing has a decent city rating, 25, but a lower one on the highway, 31. As tends to be the case with performance-oriented engines, premium fuel is recommended in the Fiesta ST, but not required (power will be reduced with regular). full 2014 Ford Fiesta review

Great fuel economy. Consumer Reports indicated that it was one of the few cars they have tested that actually got better than EPA during their (sometimes high performance) testing. I am getting better than 38 mpg in a mix of city/highway. full 2012 Ford Fiesta review

I am thinking of getting a Ford Fiesta as my next vehicle and just wondering if there are major problems.
