Expert Quotes:

28 mpg city, 37 highway (manual); 29/38 (PowerShift automatic); 29/40 (Super Fuel Economy Package)
U.S. EPA





Gas mileage numbers as high as 30 mpg city, 40 highway are definitely a strong selling point for the 2012 Ford Fiesta, whether you're looking to reduce your carbon footprint or just keep your motoring budget as low as possible. But with the arrival of the Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Accent, and special versions of the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, and Ford Focus, all of which achieve 40 mpg or more on the highway, those numbers are no longer the icing on the cake.

To get those top ratings, what you need is the $395 Fuel Economy Package. With it, you add aerodynamic improvements, low-rolling-resistance tires, and cruise control. But perplexingly, it's only offered on the SE trim.

EPA ratings are 28 mpg city, 37 highway with the five-speed manual gearbox, or 29/38 with the six-speed Powershift dual-clutch transmission, which replaces a conventional automatic.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Ford Fiesta has good gas mileage, but that doesn't position it as any greener than its small-car peers.

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.
