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).
The Fiesta rides like a much larger car. You are only reminded you are in a very small car when you hit a very sharp bump with both front tires at the same time.
The Fiesta wins this category hands down, I do not see how anyone could think any of the class competition looks even close to as stylish as the Fiesta. Lots of good colors to choose from too!
