2011 Ford Fiesta SES Four Door Review and Gallery

Fiesta also drive than anything else on the road, the cars and certainly different than above. four-door subcompact hatchback is technically based on government regulations, but you would never know that is a turn-off car and the cabin quiet we experienced when driving on any type of road we could find in Los Angeles.
Powered by a line 120-hp 1.6-liter engine-4 fuel which requires only 87-octane, the mission of Fiesta is clearly not the breathtaking acceleration, but fuel economy impressive. Equipped with automatic transmission six-speed manual (a $ 1,070 option), fuel economy Fiesta rated by the EPA is 29 city/38 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined. Our average of more than 300 miles was 31 mpg, leaving a little over 2 gallons of fuel in the tank of 12 gallons of the car.
Auto Racing 60 mph with a 2011 Ford Fiesta Hatchback SES takes 10.5 seconds, the performance that places like midpack car in its segment. It stops at 60 mph in 116 feet.
Ford introduced the Fiesta 2011, hoping to capture the attention of people who have never considered a small car before, and has made available a Premium package with all the comfort and convenience you expect from a bigger car.
Part of this work is an optional six-speed automated manual instead of a traditional automatic transmission with torque converter. Others intend to implement an automatic transmission to replace conventional automatic, as it will produce fuel economy nearly as good as the manual transmission. Compared to the Fiesta five speed manual, six-speed automatic improves fuel economy 1 mpg EPA city and losing just 1 mpg highway EPA, but its EPA fuel economy is only 1 mpg less.
Why automatically, usually do not know what kind of transmission you have, so far there is no change in shock two clutch automated, and business goes on seamlessly select the right gear ratios at the appropriate time for improve fuel economy, even if you set-it-and-forget use.
At the same time the electronic program that triggers a change in its debut at Ford, as a stop-and-go traffic seemed to remove automatically. There was a time when the sentence in the passage of time does not correspond to ours and we could not predict how he would react to changes in traffic patterns. computer calls elected decision to hold a gear for the right moment, an upshift smoothly, and vice versa, providing a quick downshift to accelerate positive and sometimes lost, delayed or completely absent.
The six-speed automated manual gearbox is exactly the right type of transmission in a car like the Ford Fiesta 2011, as it offers convenience with almost no sacrifice in performance or economy of fuel. And yet we believe that this unit Powershift Ford needs a little more development. At the time of automatic Fiesta has a low-end position at the console mounted shifter and a program button down, but we think it is still necessary to provide the ability to change gears manually, and maybe even move the paddle.
2011-Ford Fiesta Ford Sync ITS benefits remarkable infotainment system that integrates wireless telephony, music (from a storage device based on cable or via Bluetooth streaming), and now what Ford calls the TDI (traffic, routes and information). TDI is through turn-by-turn voice navigation instructions that are downloaded via your mobile phone via a toll-free in the car.
At the same time, the red LED display on the center console that indicates the presence of synchronization requires a trip or two to the owner’s manual to learn the full extent of their capabilities. Ford says it designed the keyboard and others who accompany the screen to be as intuitive as a mobile phone, but are not sure that it meets the standard.
In terms of access driver and passenger comfort, the Fiesta SES provides ample space for front passengers can enjoy leather buckets for the package of $ 715 L. Meanwhile, rear passengers will find plenty of free space, and legs a little less than an average car of 31 inches. Luggage space with all seats occupied is smaller than 15 cubic feet, but the option package features the 60/40 folding rear seats, so the load capacity can be expanded to 26 cubic feet.

Perhaps the most notable quality of the Ford Fiesta is the quality which seems to have been introduced. All doors close with a reassuring thud, the body panels as well as inside and looks and feels as if it belonged to a more expensive car. This may be the intention of being an affordable car, but the interior has been designed with durability in mind.
If the safety of small cars is a concern, you will be pleased to know that the standard equipment on all Fiesta models including stability and traction control, antilock brakes and seven airbags (including driver knee airbag). Although NHTSA crash tests have not yet completed, the IIHS awarded the Fiesta sedan and hatchback its “Top Safety Pick”: first a sub-compact has never received the highest recommendation of the influential organization.
