Camelback Ford Previews the New Fiesta
The Ford Fiesta packs big-time fun into a compact package. Its features are not only abundant, but also purposeful and designed to suit modern needs, leading 2016 Ford Fiesta reviews like Edmunds.com's to label it as both well-appointed and advanced.
Making headlines this year, the Fiesta gains an optional new infotainment system called SYNC 3, which replaces the former MyFord Touch interface. With improved speed, performance and functionality, including new smartphone-esque swipe and pinch controls, the system offers a simplified experience that should please users. If you're purchasing a 2016 Ford Fiesta in Phoenix, the new system is offered in the SE Appearance package and comes standard on top-of-the-line Titanium trims. In addition to SYNC 3, Fiesta's technology list is filled out by features such as Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming, MyKey parental controls on SE trims and up, and amenities like rear parking sensors and a rearview camera on the Titanium.
Powering the Fiesta, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder goes to work to create 120 hp and 112 pound-feet of torque. This is the base engine on most every 2016 Ford Fiesta in Phoenix, but you can also opt for the available EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder, which offers similar power ratings, but may be an advantage to shoppers who desire seriously thrifty gas use. The EcoBoost gets an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined (31 city/43 highway), ratings that are more than impressive for a car in its class. In addition to the base engine and EcoBoost option, the 2016 Fiesta ST comes standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 197 horsepower and 202 pound-feet of torque, making it the choice for shoppers who want more energetic performance.
After taking a test drive, you'll see why KBB.com's 2016 Ford Fiesta review calls this a car that checks all the right boxes. Its combination of efficiency, features, value and style make it a top choice among subcompacts!
