2016 FORD FIESTA: As Ford's subcompact, the 2016 Fiesta lives up to its slogan, "Small is smart." The '16 edition four-door sedan and four-door hatchback come in Fiesta S, SE Titanium and ST series, each wearing a stylish hood and front chrome grille, and a freshen, upscale interior. There are two engines and three horsepower ratings available to consumers, starting with the diminutive 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder that develops 123- horsepower and comes exclusively with a five-speed manual gearbox. Also offered is the 1.6L four-cylinder that produces 120-hp and can be ordered with a five-speed manual or six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission with select shift capability. Then there is the high-output version of the 1.6L that creates nearly 200-hp (197 to be exact) installed in the North American Fiesta ST five-door hatchback, with a heavy-duty six-speed manual gearbox and enough racing DNA to back up the aggressive styling. Fiesta ST drivers looking for a year-round daily driver can opt for a 16-inch wheel package with all-season tires at no extra charge. The available SYNC 3 enhances voice recognition communications and entertainment system now has a capacitive touch screen including the convenient swipe and pinch-to-zoom functionality. There is Easy Fuel capless fuel filler, heated and leather-trimmed seats, 10 colors, interior ambient lighting and personalized vehicle graphics. Newly available exterior colors are Shadow Black, Electric Spice, Kona Blue and White Platinum metallic tri-coat. Customers who buy a new Fiesta ST get a complimentary day of performance driving instruction from ST Octane Academy at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.
