In some respects, what you see is what you get with the Ford Fiesta 2012 specs. This little Ford looks stylish and even a bit racy, with an urban-runabout element that had been missing from Ford’s U.S. lineup. With the Ford Fiesta 2012, the U.S. has something on the economy car menu as mouthwatering as an In-n-Out Double-Double.
A Ford Fiesta 2012 review say the car certainly isn’t the most affordable small car, but especially if you consider the Fiesta’s stylish appearance and surprisingly stout feature lists, it’s one of the better ways to downsize—without feeling like you’re moving downscale, that is.
The Ford Fiesta 2012 is the best car for you if you want a distinctively styled, nimble small car that proves “inexpensive” need not mean “cheap.” The Ford Fiesta 2012 carries over virtually unchanged after its model-year 2011 U.S. debut.
Having just been introduced to North American buyers for model-year 2011 Ford Fiesta, the Ford Fiesta 2012 appearance is unchanged, though new options packages dress it up with various visual add-ons. The future Ford Fiesta continues to offer two distinctive body styles: a four-door sedan and a sportier-looking four-door hatchback.
There are three trim levels for the Ford Fiesta 2012 sedan (S, SE and SEL) and two trims for the hatchback (SE and SES). The Ford Fiesta 2012 dynamic exterior look – Ford calls it “kinetic” design – is highlighted by a wide lower air dam and a grille flanked by narrow headlamps that sweep gracefully up and into muscular front fenders. Neither Ford Fiesta 2012 body style qualifies as a large car, but the sedan is more than a foot longer overall than the hatchback and its sweeping roofline reinforces a bullet-like appearance.
Every Ford Fiesta 2012 is powered by a 1.6-liter inline-4 that generates 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic is optional. Technically, the Ford Fiesta 2012 automatic is actually a dual-clutch automated manual transmission; it provides quicker gear changes than a traditional torque converter-based automatic and delivers better fuel economy than a conventional automatic, too.
Disappointingly, there is no manual-shift feature. Ford estimates the 2012 Ford Fiesta Gas Mileage fuel economy at 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway for the automatic and 29/38 for the manual. The Ford Fiesta 2012 sprint to 60 mph from a standstill for a manual-equipped car takes 9.5 seconds — about the same as a Honda Fit.
Competitors of the Ford Fiesta 2012
Unlike much of its competition, the Ford Fiesta 2012 is available in both sedan and hatchback body styles. Of course, the Ford Fiesta 2012 hatchback provides greater cargo capacity, but some folks prefer the more formal look of a sedan so Ford provides the choice. Either way, the Ford Fiesta 2012 provides sprightly handling, a compliant ride and a quiet cabin at freeway speed.
In addition to the Honda Fit, the Ford Fiesta 2012 also faces the newly speedy Hyundai Accent and the sporty Kia Soul, as well as the funky and aptly named Nissan Cube. Compared to these, the 2012 Ford Fiesta specifications lags well behind in terms of maximum cargo capacity and rear seat room for taller passengers.
The Ford Fiesta 2012 sedan, meanwhile, has a bit less rear seat room than the Chevy Aveo, Hyundai Accent and Nissan Versa. But the feisty Ford Fiesta 2012 wins us over with its more engaging and well-rounded personality and as such should be on your test-drive list if you’re shopping for a frugal but flavorful set of wheels. The Ford Fiesta 2012 release date is planned to hit the market in September 2011.
