What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2012 Ford Fiesta

2012 Ford Fiesta Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Sedan 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Narrow car with narrow seats. If you are a taller/bigger person, expect that the seats will feel like doll furniture after an hour. see full Ford Fiesta review

2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
I was told that it is comfortable for a short ride but after 45 minutes my passengers were complaining about lack of room and comfort. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Smallish like all b-segment cars. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Its cramped, but seems about the same as any other car in its size range. It was easier to get in and out of compared to a Mazda 2 and about the same as current generation Prius C. I wouldn't take anyone long distances in the rear, but I didn't expect to. We have a 2009 Prius which is our long distance carry people car. I wanted something with good handling and economy that was well built and that's what I got. see full Ford Fiesta review

Very tiny. Had to squeeze in. Not very comfortable for long term. Feels a bit crowded. see full Ford Fiesta review

rear seat leg room is tight. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Basically, it is a two seater. Car seats and small children will fit ok in the back. Essentially it is a great commuter car. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Rear seat legroom is limited, especially if front seat passengers adjust their seats rearward. see full Ford Fiesta review

while it felt my family of 5 comfortably, it might not fit others.... see full Ford Fiesta review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2012 Ford Fiesta

2012 Ford Fiesta Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Coming from a manual, the shifts are smooth. Its not a slushbox but it moves when pushed and has less trouble figuring out what gear to be in than I do in emergency situations, and I've been driving a manual for over 30 years. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
6-speed automatic transmission. True fuel injection, variable cam timming engine. see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Quick accelleration, maintains highway speeds and passes cars on highway with incredible ease. I do not feel like the proverbial 98-pound-weakling driving this car on the highway! see full Ford Fiesta review
2011 4dr Sedan 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
The PowerShift transmission is as bad as you've heard. There are definitely ways to learn how to diminish its flaws. Generally, the higher RPMs you go, the less jerkiness/heaving you experience, and the smoother the shifts are. Coming to a near-stop and then going again (e.g. a California roll) causes rough shifting and bucking. At low RPMs in general, the shifting is not smooth. see full Ford Fiesta review

The ride and handling cry for the addition of an Ecoboost motor option in this car.(Ford Fiesta ST perhaps?) see full Ford Fiesta review

2012 Ford Fiesta Tires: Cons

2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4

Factory Kumho tires are noisy and have very little grip, especially in the rain. Fortunately this is easily correctable by using Michelin Defender or similar when replacing them. see full Ford Fiesta review
