Economy cars generally come off as boring, unremarkable vehicles whose sole purpose is to transport a body from one place to another. At one point, this was enough for the middle class commuter, who simply wanted a chassis, wheels, and an engine to get him to and from work. Now, with the slow recovery of the economy, people are spending more money on nicer things, and the economy car is suddenly becoming nicer. The Ford Fiesta is no exception, for it is an affordable yet stylish option for any Utah commuter looking to upgrade their lifestyle.
The Ford Fiesta looks good even with its “bare bones” model. Several trim packages upgrade the features to make it a classy car. Such packages include the “Moon and Mood” package, which adds a sunroof, ambient lighting, and Sirius radio capability. The performance package adds wheel and chassis upgrades. Buying every trim package seems like it would be an expensive feat, but it really only adds a few thousand to the already inexpensive base model. Any Utah consumer who has the dream of buying a car with all the options can finally make that dream come true for an affordable price.
As for actual performance, the Ford Fiesta boasts some serious stock power for a commuter car. All models come standard with the 120 horsepower engine, which is powerful for a small car. The Powershift gearbox option adds a hybrid transmission, which functions like an automatic, but has the efficiency of a manual gearbox. This means that Utah’s steep mountain roads will be a breeze.
Utah’s gas prices are increasing, and the Ford Fiesta is a great option for those who want to save on fuel. It can get 40 miles per gallon, a great average for a non-hybrid car. Now the commute to work has become fast, stylish, and efficient! The Fiesta is no siesta.
