Grab a piñata we're having a Fiesta!
Smaller is better. Obviously this isn’t true in every situation but for many drivers a compact or sub-compact car will meet their needs just as nicely as a midsize sedan or even some crossovers. After decades of neglect, automakers have finally started to share some of their excellent B-Segment offerings with American motorists. If you’ve been thinking about downsizing there really hasn’t been a better time to do it.
Ford’s offering in the subcompact segment is the style-focused Fiesta. This car has been on sale in North America for a few years now; if you remember it debuted with great fanfare from the company and their “Fiesta Movement” social-media campaign.
But that was then and rather redundantly today is now… make sense? The Blue Oval B-Segment vehicle has received a mild update for the 2014 model year to keep it competitive in the segment. But even with a refresh, is the Fiesta aging gracefully or is it best to buy something else?
