2011 Ford Fiesta Review

Bullz-Eye.com reviews the 2011 Ford Fiesta! Find out what the site had to say about this ride.

I have been hearing and reading about the 2011 Ford Fiesta for so long now that I felt I knew the car before I stepped inside the cabin. Ford provided Bullz-Eye with a Lime Green Metallic 2011 Ford Fiesta SES Hatchback with a manual transmission for our test drive, and I had a week to get to know it better.

I had high expectations considering this is an all new offering in North America from Ford. The media coverage has been off the charts so I was very curious to see how the Fiesta would measure up. When you first see the Fiesta, you realize this isn’t just a filler in The Blue Oval’s lineup, but a signal of what subcompact cars in America will look like in the future.

Exterior Design
The 2011 Fiesta has a clean and aggressive looking front end that, quite frankly, surprised me a bit. When I took a hard look at the fascia and stance, I wondered if there were more positive surprises in store with this ride. I continued to check out the exterior of the vehicle and caught the 16″ painted aluminum wheels staring at me and, I must say they, looked very sharp. The front driving lamps have a chrome bezel and look very stylish. It is the kind of detail I would expect in a larger, more expensive car. (We just aren’t used to these things in subcompacts in the U.S…) I liked the overall look of the hatchback and the rear blended smoothly with the hyper-cool front end. The edgy styling sat well with me and will distinguish the Fiesta from its competitors.

From Motortrend.com:

What’s good for Mini is good for Ford, right? Hold on. While the 2011 Ford Fiesta on sale this spring won’t range from $20,000 to $30,000+, it easily will stretch into four-cylinder Fusion territory thanks to a long list of gee-whiz features that don’t come with the base model.

To get costs down for North American-market prices, Ford has scrapped the European Fiesta’s “cheap and cheerful” interior, with its techy two-tone seats and matching dashboard-top colors. The North American Fiesta has black-on-black dashboard tops with contrasting plastic grains, although top-of-the-range the SES and SEL do come with different-colored lower dashes and door inserts and are available with supple leather seats with contrasting piping and stitching.
