The 2011 Ford Fiesta should be available for a test drive at your local showroom now (last we heard dealers and customers were complaining that the Fiesta has been delayed). In our eyes it seems like the 2011 Fiesta will give the subcompact market in the United States quite a competition.
The 2011 Ford Fiesta starts at $13,320, looks better than the competition and offers better fuel-economy (no we’re not kissing FoMoCo’s rear-end we’re just stating the facts). Either way at the end of the day, the decision is yours and what you feel is the best choice for your daily driver.
The 2010 Honda Fit starts at $14,900, offers only one body style and averages an EPA-estimated 27/33 mpg (city/highway). Next up is the 2010 Toyota Yaris. It comes in three body styles (3-door hatch, 5-door hatch and a sedan) with prices starting at $12,605 for the 3-door hatch ($12,905 for the 5-door hatch). Fuel-economy for the Yaris is estimated at 29/36 mpg. Last but not least we have the Nissan Versa, which starts at $13,520 ($9,990 for the sedan stripped of basically everything) and averages an EPA-estimated 26/34 mpg. You can also take a look at Nissan’s Cube, which starts at $13,990, offers one body style, and averages 27/31 mpg.
The decision is yours, just let us know it in the comments section below.
Refresher: The 2011 Ford Fiesta is powered by a 1.6L DOHC 4-cylinder engine making 120-hp with a peak torque of 109 lb-ft.
