Ford's smallest car gets a tiny price bump for 2014. Sedan versions of the refreshed-for-2014 Fiesta will start at $14,795, hatchbacks at $15,395. The sport-tuned ST, which comes only as a hatchback with the five-speed manual transmission, starts at $22,195 (all prices include a $795 destination fee).
It's a modest price bump over model-year 2013 sedans, which started at $13,995, and hatchbacks, which started at $14,995, including destination.
For 2014 the subcompact gets more grown-up exterior styling borrowed from the new Fusion, as well as more available features like the MyFord Touch multimedia system. Under the hood, a new optional 123-horsepower, turbocharged 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine joins the previous version's 1.6-liter four-cylinder. Five-speed manual and six-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmissions carry over.
S, SE and Titanium trim levels are again available, and base models will continue to use the 1.6-liter four-cylinder. The new-for-2014 ST model uses a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that Ford says makes an estimated 197 horsepower and 214 pounds-feet of torque.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta goes on sale this spring. Sedan and hatchback trim level pricing are below; all prices include a $795 destination fee. Ford has yet to release pricing on models equipped with the new EcoBoost three-cylinder engine.
