According to recent EPA testing, the new king of fuel efficiency for subcompact cars is the all-new 2014 Ford Fiesta. The new Fiesta achieves a best-in-class highway fuel economy of 41 mpg. It is the only subcompact car on the road today that can return more than 40 mp highway.
This fuel economy achievement is possible for the Fiesta SE with the Super Fuel Economy package that includes Ford’s 1.6-liter engine and PowerShift automatic transmission. In addition to the amazing 41 mpg highway, the Fiesta also gets an impressive 30 mpg city and 34 mpg combined.
The new and improved aerodynamics also helps achieve a better fuel rating. The SFE package includes a rear spoiler, side air deflectors, lower grille blockers, underbody shields, low-rolling resistance tires and cruise control. These all help decrease the amount of fuel consumption needed to cruise down the interstate.
“The 2014 model is shaping up to be a game changer for Fiesta,” said Liz Elser, Ford Fiesta marketing manager. “With the addition of Fiesta ST and the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost®, we have fantastic performance and fuel efficiency. But with today’s news, buyers will have a fuel-efficient Fiesta no matter which they choose.”
