Posted on 08.13.2010 22:00 by 12

We have always been a bit with Ford. The Detroit automaker has become a huge in Europe. One example of this old takeover was theMondeo. This was so intensely popular that it a new nickname, ’Mondeo Man’. you ever seen a Ford in the United States that was popular? We think not.

are more examples of this as The Fiesta. Focus. Ka. and the ever Transit van have been the European market for ages. with some persuasion, is going to bring a few of those models to the United States.

The has been in the shadows for most if its life. Ford has decided to the young audience with pages and all of that other In our opinion, Ford needs to all this and get out in the mainstream, and we want to

So, here we have a lime-green Fiesta with a five-speed transmission just waiting to be out on the roads, and we were more happy to oblige. Yet, who a normal review, those are so Awaiting the Fiesta was the gang of hatchbacks that have established there turf; the Yaris, Nissan Versa, and the Fit. Now we have a proper on our hands.

Hit the jump to keep reading .


Most of these will wait until the end to the results, but that’s just not to happen today. Consider a gift from all of us at TopSpeed. The Yaris was our least favorite, by the Nissan Versa. the Ford and the Honda Fit. Now that we got that out of the way, you can either on to find out our reasoning, head to the bottom of the page to write an comment, or leave the page We’ll leave it up to you.

For of you that have decided to on, we would like to defend our place pick. Although we like the Toyota Yaris. sure many will. all, the thing is really and people love to save Most money-strapped people go for a used American car that has one in the car grave.

The Yaris is $2,605 than the next cheapest but there is more than a low price to this machine. It can step for step with the Fit to 60 miles per hour and then it back to zero 13 feet Not to mention you get traction control, control, ABS, electronic force distribution, and brake All that stuff is standard on the If you can spare a few extra coins, the car with the Power Package. It shouldn’t be hard to figure out this package provides, as in the name. This $1,705 equips the car with power windows, AM/FM/CD player, and a folding rear seat. All of goodies matter a great to a small car.

On the road the Toyota feels its price, cheap. That is a shame because everything the Toyota was shaping up to be brilliant, to be let down in the area where Toyota s are let down; driving There are only four-gears, noisy, slow in the bends, and a bit ugly. Not to mention we can’t when the speedometer is in the middle of the

The Nissan Versa is a different Where as the Toyota is a normal, cheap hatchback, the Versa is a of magic. Nissan must used some sort of voodoo in order to make it large on the inside, while on the outside. When parked to the Fit, it seems no bigger, but in an turn of events, it is on the inside. four well-fed Americans home from eating quarter pounders from the burger joint could sit inside the Versa. With a in the driver’s seat, there is 1.7-inches of headroom and around of kneeroom. It’s just

Had our test been based on everyday commuter driving, the would be taking the top spot on the The Versa was the quietest and it had the second ride quality, according to our

Sadly, we like to drive we have a bee in our trousers on occasion and the let us down a bit in this area. The was brilliant on perfectly smooth but add a few bumps in and the car gets twitchy. The area in which the Nissan was in the styling department. Where as the sacrificed practicality for style, did the opposite. This is not a pretty car or out. If Nissan wants Versa to be taken seriously, need to redesign this

Ford’s creation on the other looks like a work of The Fiesta is just gorgeous, not to those looks should because the car is built like a It’s not very often people in BMWs look at a Ford, but they sure did the Fiesta drove past.

On the other hand, as we stated the Fiesta’s heavenly looks away from the car’s That sloped roof can diminish rear visibility and space. Drive a long with an adult in the backseat and won’t be able to walk for Needless to say, there a whole lot of room in there.

you open the front door and sit in the seat, you are taken by surprise. The stack looks as if it was thrown on the and wherever the buttons landed was they would go. That said, the quality is just The plastics are soft to the touch and feels solid. After you get used to the button layout as

The Fiesta isn’t just all and no go. It was the second fastest to 60 mph and had the best in the grip and ride quality Many of these things don’t go with a good car, but Ford has made work.

As we noted earlier, our Fiesta had a normal five-speed gearbox. The transmission is actually good and the clutch is light and to use in traffic. The car can also be equipped a fancy six-speed double-clutch transmission that amazingly better mileage. We haven’t had a to use this transmission, but we hear pretty darn amazing.

To come off the happy train for a the Fiesta does suffer a few issues. Both transmissions problems. The manual can be a bit unrefined at and the throws are rather long. The system can upshift and downshift at times. Either way you go, the grass be entirely green.

It’s to believe that the old Fit could be ranked number one. It was the nosiest, behind the Yaris, and the can be a bit rough at times. It was a tad slow, as it beat the Toyota, and it stopped the longest distance. Not to mention it $19,820.

So, how in the heck did this come in first place? On the is where things get better, as the Fit is as fun as a go-kart around the bends. cars don’t have to be and the Fit is proof. The Honda had far better vision and it was easy to pack the with many various The Sport version gives the paddles to play with can make you feel like Hamilton around a tight road.

The looks of the Fit are modern and sleek, but over the top. It still has the appearance like the Fiesta, but it lose any space on the inside. this car is top notch.

We would much rather have the than any of these four, but did one darn good job at replicating the Cooper. The interior is nicely and it feels like a quality
