Ford Fiesta is one of the Top 10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000 of 2016, according to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.
This is the sixth time in seven years that KBB has named Fiesta to the list. The uniquely designed Ford Fiesta – starting from $14,090 (excludes destination and delivery) – shows that cool and affordable really can coexist. As one of America’s most popular small cars, Fiesta offers customers a fun, dynamic car with nimble handling and a comfortable ride, all at an appealing value.
Cars that earn a spot on the KBB coolest new cars list must be fun to drive and fun to own. Each vehicle also must be available for purchase starting at $18,000 or less, using Kelley Blue Book’s exclusive Fair Market Range as the yardstick. “Cool sure has come a long way,” says Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book. “Our annual Coolest New Cars Under $18,000 is one of Kelley Blue Book’s longest-running lists, and it’s incredible to see all of the amazing tech features and amenities you can get on an affordable car these days compared to a decade ago.”
Available in hatch or sedan bodystyles, Ford’s popular small car offers a wide range of choice; from the powerful and efficient available 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine to the sporty 1.6-liter EcoBoost in the Fiesta ST. SYNC 3 – the latest Ford communications and entertainment system – is also standard, offering customers enhanced voice recognition, ultimate music streaming control and SYNC AppLink™ enabling customers to control some mobile apps while driving.
Ford continues to improve and refine Fiesta. “Customers want cars that are expressive and fun,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, The Americas. “Fiesta delivers all the excitement drivers are looking for in a car we believe raises the bar even higher for small cars in North America.”
Celebrating its 40th birthday in Europe this year, the Fiesta has been on sale in North America since 2010, notching up more than 285,000 sales in that time.
