The 2014 Ford Fiesta hatchback negotiates city streets and tight parking garages with ease; that's largely because the Fiesta is so small and spritely. The hatchback's small stature isn't as helpful when the time comes to load up the cargo area with goods, however.
Cargo space behind the rear seats measures in at a skimpy 14.9 cubic feet. The 25.4 cubic feet of total cargo space is also tiny for the class, and the rear seats don't fold into a flat cargo floor like many of its four-door hatchback competitors. Check out our cargo animation of the Fiesta to see what it looks like when golf clubs, suitcases and a stroller are stuffed into the hatchback.
