Fiesta gets the most out of every corner, thanks to the technical precision only a Ford-tuned suspension can offer. Taking on straightaways is a smooth affair, too, when you combine electric power-assisted steering with the proprietary Ford invention, active nibble control. Covert aerodynamic design and critical technology such as the class-exclusive PowerShift six-speed automatic and 1.6L Ti-VCT Duratec® I4 engine with twin-independent variable cam timing make it a responsive and fuel-responsible driving experience.
Fiesta is designed to amplify the anticipation of the drive and physically engage your senses. Thoughtful design cues like the class-exclusive* 4″ multifunctional LCD display screen and cell phone-inspired center console with cascading buttons are pleasing to the eyes and the touch. Available features such as front heated leather-trimmed seats, SYNC® in-car connectivity system and Intelligent Access with push-button start reinforce that Fiesta is a choice, not a compromise.
The safety advancements in the 2011 Fiesta give you the peace of mind to enjoy the quick and nimble performance that makes Fiesta so much fun to drive. Fiesta provides seven standard air bags-more standard airbags than any other compact cars in its class*- and includes side curtain airbags. There’s even an airbag at the driver’s knees. And here’s another way Fiesta raises the bar on safety: a protective “safety cage” made of boron - an element so strong it’s used in the aerospace industry- surrounds both driver and passengers.
Fiesta has no qualms about standing out, starting at the front end with a three-bar grille and distinctive dragon’s-eye headlamps. A razor-slash side panel highlights the car’s cut-and-run stance, while the upswept rear end makes it look like it’s ready to launch. Available ambient lighting and available bright metallic accents create a radiant glow that surrounds the interior, and unique exterior colors emphasize Fiesta’s effervescent personality bubbling to the surface.
