    Ford Fiesta 3-Cyl Boosted To 140 HP: Forbidden Fruit Quick Drive

    At 123 horsepower, Ford's 1.0-liter Ecoboost Fiesta already develops an impressive output for its diminutive size. That it does so while delivering entertaining handling and perhaps most importantly, a 36 mpg combined rating (31 mpg city, 43 mpg highway) is even better. But Ford's powertrain...

    2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost: Gas Mileage Test Returns 40 MPG

    As a general rule, we like small cars, and small cars with small engines. Eighteen months ago, when we first drove prototype versions of the 2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost, we knew we'd be eager to get our hands on the little subcompact with the turbocharged three-cylinder engine for a longer drive...

    Why One Young Woman Bought A 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage: Frugal Shopping

    Many people approach car shopping in the U.S. looking for the largest, most luxurious vehicle they can afford, from the best brand possible. Still, at least a handful of shoppers are more focused on basic transportation--and a vehicle they know they can afford. My daughter Priscilla falls into the...

    Ford's Three-Cylinder Engine Does Well In Fiesta; Focus Next Up

    Three cylinders is about three-quarters what many U.S. consumers will tolerate, about half the number they prefer and three eighths that of what some consider ideal. It may come as a surprise then that Ford's 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder, as found in the Fiesta, is actually beating Ford's...

  • 2014 Ford Fiesta

    Stop-start systems have taken much longer to infiltrate the U.S. market than they have elsewhere, but several manufacturers are finally coming around to the idea of the gas-saving technology. One such automaker is Ford, which has announced that 70 percent of its North American vehicle lineup will be available with stop-start by 2017. The technology has had such a slow uptake in the U.S. due to the way vehicles are measured under EPA-devised fuel economy tests. As a comparison, the European city economy test is much shorter than its EPA counterpart--780 seconds (around 13 minutes) compared to...

    2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost Priced, 45 MPG Highway Too

    Ever since Mitsubishi revealed its gas-sipping Mirage was capable of 40 mpg combined, we've awaited the figures for Ford's 1.0-liter EcoBoost Fiesta with interest. That wait is now at an end, with Ford's customer website and the EPA's website both confirming the three-cylinder...

    Ford's updated Fiesta SFE is offering even better fuel efficiency for the 2014 model year. The Fiesta uses a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, developing around 120 horsepower. It's a fun little car to drive, but the main focus here is economy. With EPA-rated mileage figures of 30 mpg city, 41 highway and...

    Best Mileage Non-Hybrid Car In 2014: From Ford Or Mitsubishi?

    You want a four-seat car with the highest EPA combined gas-mileage rating you can get--but you've decided you don't want a hybrid. For 2014, two new competitors are joining the fray--and they seem likely to offer considerably better fuel efficiency than today's best-of-the-pack. This year, your...

    2014 Ford Fiesta ST: At 35 MPG, Highest-Mileage Performance Hatch?

    From our earlier first drive of the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST over at Motor Authority, we already knew that Ford has put together not only one lean pocket rocket that's a hoot to drive, but one of the most compelling small cars from a value standpoint. With its 1.6-liter turbocharged EcoBoost...

    In-Wheel Motor Electric Ford Fiesta Previews Future Urban Vehicles

    When automakers test prototypes and new technologies, it's often done under the skin of an existing vehicle--partly to save costs, partly to avoid the gaze of prying spy photographers. That's why the Ford Fiesta you see here looks nothing special, save for some basic wheels and its not-for-U.S...

  • 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost (European version)

    Much fanfare has been made about Ford's 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost engine. Offering the performance of a 1.6-liter with the economy of a much smaller unit, many would have you believe it represents the future of internal combustion. If not transported to the future, our first drive of the Fiesta EcoBoost proved entertaining back in December, and we've now had a little more seat-time on UK roads. The basics There's nothing truly groundbreaking about Ford's 1.0 EcoBoost--it just happens to be a figurehead for the general direction that combustion engines are heading in these...

    2014 Ford Fiesta Gets Facelift, Debuts At Paris Auto Show

    Ford's Fiesta is proof that moving down to a smaller car doesn't involve sacrificing all the features you'd normally get in a larger car. It's fun to drive, refined, has good gas mileage and feels more substantial than it looks--and it's getting a facelift for the 2014 model year, unveiled at this...

  • Ford Focus Wagon 1.0T EcoBoost  -  Driven June 2012

    Three-cylinder engines have never found much traction in the U.S. Outside of the much-loved Chevrolet Sprint, Geo Metro, and Suzuki Swift, they've mostly been in the domain of obscure subcompact nameplates like the Subaru Justy and Daihatsu Charade, and in niche minicars like the Smart Fortwo. Now Ford looks poised to bring its all new 1.0-liter turbocharged three—part of its EcoBoost family—to the U.S. in a small-car model. The U.S. is likely to get it in the Ford Fiesta, while Europe is initially getting it in the larger Focus. Either way, Ford's former global development chief...

    Remember the Ford B-Max? Of course you do. Ford's small Fiesta-based minivan, previewed in concept form at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, is most recognizable for its innovative doors, and lack of a B-pillar. Unfortunately, motorists in the U.S. won't get to enjoy the space and innovations, as...

    Small, Fun, High-MPG Minicars, Never Coming To The U.S.

    Life is so unfair sometimes.
