Introduction
The 2014 Ford Fiesta is a sub-compact car offered in 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback body styles. This year, the Fiesta gets a substantial makeover designed to keep it competitive against models such as the Chevrolet Sonic and Spark, Honda Fit, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Mazda 2, Mitsubishi Mirage,  Nissan Versa and Versa Note, and the Toyota Yaris.

Models and Features
Ford sells the 2014 Fiesta in S, SE, Titanium, and ST trim levels. All except for the ST are available in 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback configuration. The ST is offered exclusively as a 5-door hatchback.

Do any cars still have manual windows that people crank up and down with their hands? Yes. The Fiesta S does. In addition to manual windows, this least-expensive of Fiesta models includes air conditioning, power door locks, floor mats, a center floor console with a cell phone holder, CD player, auxiliary audio input jack, and Sync Bluetooth connectivity. The base Fiesta S also gets cloth seats, a manual driver's seat height adjuster, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, power mirrors with integrated blind-spot mirrors, and 15-inch steel wheels with plastic wheel covers.

The Fiesta SE adds additional cabin lighting, upgraded interior trim, expanded interior storage, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, remote keyless entry, and power windows. Additionally, this version of the Fiesta rolls on 15-inch aluminum wheels, and is equipped with MyKey programmable safety features, improved seat cloth, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, side mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators, and a message center with a trip computer.

The Fiesta Titanium is equipped with leather seats, heated front seats, automatic climate control, a MyFord Touch infotainment system, and a premium audio system with HD Radio and satellite radio. Additional equipment includes Intelligent Access with push-button start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated exterior mirrors, reversing camera, rear park-assist system, chrome exterior accents, fog lights, and 16-inch polished wheels.

The Fiesta ST gets a more powerful engine with something Ford calls a \"sound symposer,\" a 6-speed manual gearbox, sport suspension, 4-wheel-disc brakes, and revised styling. The standard equipment list mixes and matches from SE and Titanium features, but the ST gets sport-bolstered seats, metallic interior trim, a perforated leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and front doorsill plates. The Fiesta ST rides on 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Options and Packages
Options are available mainly for the Fiesta SE, Titanium, and ST trim levels. All three can be upgraded with a power sunroof and a navigation system, while the Fiesta ST is offered with an exclusive Recaro package with performance seats partially wrapped in leather. Buyers can option the Fiesta SE with a Super Fuel Economy package, SE Appearance package (MyFord Touch, 16-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights) and a Comfort package (heated front seats, heated side mirrors, automatic climate control).

Under the Hood
A 120-horsepower, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard for the Fiesta S, SE, and Titanium trim levels, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission that drives the car's front wheels. A 6-speed PowerShift automated manual transmission is optional.

New for 2014, a turbocharged, 1.0-liter, EcoBoost 3-cylinder engine is optional for the Fiesta. It makes 123 horsepower, not much more than the standard 1.6-liter engine. However, the EcoBoost engine generates 148 lb.-ft. of torque, nearly 30% more than the standard engine, and is expected to be more fuel-efficient at the same time. That's a win-win.

The performance-oriented Fiesta ST is equipped with a turbocharged, 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine that Ford says will deliver 197 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 202 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,500 rpm. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard, and is the only transmission choice for this car, which weighs all of 2,720 lbs.

Fuel Economy
The EPA has officially rated the 2014 Fiesta's standard 1.6-liter engine. It is expected to return between 27 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, depending on transmission choice. With the Super Fuel Economy package, which includes the PowerShift transmission, the car is expected to get 30 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway.

Official fuel-economy estimates for the new EcoBoost 3-cylinder engine and the Fiesta ST are not available as this article is written.

Safety Ratings and Technology
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) calls the 2014 Ford Fiesta a \"Top Safety Pick.\" According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2014 Fiesta receives an overall crash-test rating of 4 (out of 5) stars. However, the NHTSA notes a safety concern related to the rear-seat, side-impact test. During testing, the Fiesta's left rear door intruded far enough into the passenger compartment that the interior door panel struck the rear crash-test dummy's torso, generating data that indicates a higher likelihood for injury.

Standard safety equipment for the 2014 Fiesta includes a knee air bag for the driver and an SOS Post Crash Alert system, which sounds the horn and activates the flashers following a collision. All Fiesta models except for the base S trim level have MyKey programmable safety features, which allow an owner to set speed warnings and limits, set stereo volume limits, and to produce incessant seat belt chimes if they aren't fastened. Versions of the car that are equipped with Sync connectivity include 911 Assist, which alerts authorities of an accident if the air bags deploy and a paired smartphone is aboard the vehicle.
