Testing Out The 2017 Fiesta

Testing Out The 2017 Fiesta

What a cool little car! I took a test drive in the 2017 Ford Fiesta at Gateway Ford and I was truly impressed. It’s small, no doubt, but the old adage “Good things come in small packages” really fits the Ford Fiesta. It’s a fun car that is powered by a standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that can reach 60 miles an hour in 8.7 seconds. That might not sound fast but it is when you’re behind the wheel in this wonderful little car.

The EPA ratings are also impressive. This great car gets 37 miles per gallon on the highway and 27 in the city. Of course, when you’re jetting around in this subcompact and having the time of your life you’re just going to throw your arms up in the air and say, “Who cares about fuel economy? I’m having too much fun to even think about it.” Yes, we’re sure that is what you’re going to say once you get in the driver’s seat of the 2017 Fiesta.

This sporty little Ford is easy to drive, meaning it handles beautifully and it is responsive to the driver’s commands. Acceleration is quick and braking is fine and there are plenty of standard features that come with the Fiesta. There are seven airbags, a leather wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, keyless entry, Ford’s MyKey security feature, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, 12-volt outlets and USB connection.

The Fiesta offers one of the quietest rides of all subcompacts and it is also one of the best priced in its class. It also has an amazingly generous cargo area. Considering the Fiesta is a subcompact, you fit almost everything and anything in the cargo space, maybe even your Shetland pony if there’s enough hay in there. All the sedans have 60/40 folding rear seats, which means you might be able to fit the Shetland plus a mini donkey back there.

The Ford Fiesta is an affordable sub compact that is fast becoming one of the best sellers in its class. It’s fun and well balanced and driving it will remind you what it was like when you got your first car. You’ll remember how much fun you had and what a sense of adventure it was just getting behind the wheel and starting the engine. Gateway Ford has plenty of Fiestas to show you, so come down and take a test drive.
