With 2017 Fiesta, Ford Transcends Subcompact Limitations

Anyone old enough to drive likely has plenty of forgettable memories, or lack thereof, regarding what time they may have spent in a subcompact car. Ford was as culpable as any manufacturer in contributing to the general perception that driving a subcompact car was something that one endured. Happily, with the 2017 Ford Fiesta, any surviving recollections of that era can safely be flushed down the memory hole. The current Fiesta's 1.6L EcoBoost produces a respectable, but not pulse-raising 120 horsepower. However, the real performance comes from the PowerShift 6 speed, dual-clutch transmission. This rockets the base model to 60 mph in just 8.7 seconds. And the tiny 15 inch tires produce .83 lateral Gs on the skipad, while stopping from 70 mph requires just 173 feet. All this can be had with the bare-bones S model. This amounts to nothing short of the best subcompact base-model car ever produced. Visit Valu Ford and Chrysler in Morris, MN to experience this next-generation performance for yourself and test drive a new Ford today.
