What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2011 Ford Fiesta

2011 Ford Fiesta Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Sedan 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
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. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Mixed bag. Pure highway exceeds 40mpg w/o effort. Lots of very short trips in town (less than 5 minutes total time) 28 MPG. Part may be the gas blend. The lower the average MPH the lower the MPG. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
One of the best combinations of fuel economy and purchase cost you will find in the US. Among the most fuel-efficient inexpensive subcompacts on the market today (though it can be beaten in fuel economy by a number of hybrids that cost significantly more). I've gotten 29-30 mpg in pure city driving, 33-35 in suburbs, and 37-46 on the highway. 5-speed manual has a somewhat lower than ideal 5th gear, which hurts gas mileage over 65 mph (37 mpg was at at 75 mph, 46 mpg at 55-60). Also has a larger than typical tank to go with that efficiency (12.4 gallons), giving you a useful range of up to 500 miles on the highway, and a good 100 miles more per tank than my previous car. Wish list:
  • SFE package with a 6-speed manual
  • "Econ AC" setting that would cool half as strongly and cut out during acceleration
  • auto start-stop
  • the 1-liter ecoboost I've been hearing about for ages but still isn't quite available in the US

So far I have average 34mpg in 60/40 city/hwy driving. I expect to get more as I learn to drive the automated powershift transmission more efficiently (I have been driving manual for many years). see full Ford Fiesta review

Cruising at 75 MPH for a road trip I got 40+ mpg. Around town I have got around 30 in mildly spirited driving. see full Ford Fiesta review
