Our Take

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2015 Ford Fiesta?

The front-wheel-drive 2015 Ford Fiesta is a five-seat subcompact car that's available in sedan and hatchback body styles. It competes with the Honda Fit, Nissan Versa Note, Chevrolet Sonic and Hyundai Accent. Available trim levels include the S, SE, Titanium and performance-oriented ST, the latter offered only as a hatchback. 

What's New on the 2015 Ford Fiesta?

The fabric seat trim of all 2015 Ford Fiesta models has been revised, and SE trims are now available with 16-inch alloy wheels.

How Does the 2015 Ford Fiesta Compare to Other Subcompact Cars?

The 2015 Fiesta hatchback offers a lot to recommend it against the competition. For starters, it's notably more efficient than many rival models, offering up to 29/39/33 mpg city/highway/combined, which handily outclasses the Chevy Sonic (26/35/30), Honda Fit (27/33/29) and Nissan Versa Note (27/36/30). Its ride, while firm, is also more comfortable than the aforementioned rivals.

The interior is where competitors outdo the Fiesta hatchback. Not only are its seats outright hard, but its rear legroom (31.2 inches) is stingier than that of the Fit (34.5), Versa Note (38.3) and Sonic (34.6). Its 37.2 inches of rear headroom is also comparatively cramped. This trend extends to cargo capacity, with the Fiesta maxing out at 26 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down - that's again less than the Versa Note (38.3), Sonic (47.7) and Fit (57.3).

What Features in the 2015 Ford Fiesta Are Most Important?

The Fiesta comes standard with a 120-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. A 123-hp, turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder  mated to a five-speed manual transmission; a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is available. The performance-focused Fiesta ST features a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission; the ST's engine produces 197 hp. The ST model also offers a unique suspension with lower ride height, along with a stiffer chassis.

Significant standard features include 15-inch wheels, power side mirrors, fabric upholstery and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Notable available features include 16- or 17-inch wheels, heated mirrors, a spoiler, a power moonroof, leather upholstery, a navigation system, MyKey system and MyFord Touch infotainment system with a 6.5-inch dashboard display.

As required in all new cars of this model year, every 2015 Ford Fiesta comes equipped with an electronic stability system, front airbags and antilock brakes. The 2015 Fiesta also features front side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver's knee airbag.

Should I Buy the 2015 Ford Fiesta?

While no subcompact car will blow you away with its performance, the 2015 Ford Fiesta is a lot of fun to drive, easily outclassing its competitors in that department. It's also less expensive and more efficient than many of its rivals, making it much easier on your wallet in the short- and long-term. Where it falls short is its interior, in terms of both occupant and cargo space.

If you're looking for great value and a fun drive, the 2015 Ford Fiesta fits the bill - but don't expect it be as versatile as other options in the subcompact class.'s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
