Expert Quotes:

...[while] it would be possible to add an in-dash navigation and infotainment system, Ford isn't planning one for cost reasons, relying on Sync's turn-by-turn feature instead.
Motor Trend

...the SYNC system is a voice-activated breath of fresh air once you've paired your devices...
Autoblog

There is also a standard tilt-telescoping steering wheel that allows drivers of all sizes to get comfortable.
Edmunds

You can order an 80-watt, six-speaker stereo that actually sounds decent.
Jalopnik

...[tested] a $20,675 SES hatchback with six-speed automatic, heated leather seats, 16-inch wheels and lower-profile tires.
USA Today

The 2011 Ford Fiesta may be a subcompact, but it's been designed, engineered, and equipped to offer the ambience and amenities of a much larger car.

Ford touts no fewer than 15 separate features not found on any other competitor, among them the PowerShift automatic transmission, the popular SYNC infotainment system, a push-button starter, an adjustable steering wheel that both tilts and telescopes, and Ford's EasyFuel capless fuel filler system. Ford also points out that the adjustable cup holders can accommodate containers from a Red Bull can to a Big Gulp--score one for the pre-diabetics.

The Fiesta can be ordered in four trim levels: base, SE, SES Sport, and SEL. A staggering variety of options and packages are available either within the trim levels or as separate line items. The SE adds a several options, including remote keyless entry, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo, power windows and automatic door locks, an instrument cluster message center, visor mirrors, metallic interior accent trim and additional interior lighting. The SES Sport and SEL add a premium 80-watt sound system with six speakers, LED driving lamps, European-style side indicators integrated into heated door mirrors, a 12V auxiliary power point for rear passengers, and 16-inch aluminum wheels. A 17-inch Ford Racing wheel package and a power-operated moonroof can be ordered with several trim levels.

It's all about choice, which doesn't surprise us, given the fact that Ford's new marketing boss came from Scion. What does surprise us is what a loose hand on the order sheet can do. Tick all the boxes and you'll spend more than $23,000--as much as a mid-size Fusion sedan.

Which brings us back to the small-car conundrum: Are there enough of you willing to trade wide open spaces for pert little economy cars with more than a dash of style and substance?

Well, are you?

Conclusion

The 2011 Ford Fiesta has several features no other subcompact offers, among them Ford’s award-winning SYNC system.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
