2012 Ford Fiesta Review

Overview
The 2012 Ford Fiesta Hatchback is a responsive and fuel-responsible driving experience. The standard 1.6-liter twin-independent variable cam timing Duratec I4 Engine is engineered for quick sprints and to go the distance. The optional Super Fuel Economy Package offers additional aerodynamic details such as underbody shields and blockers on the lower grille. 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 2012 Fiesta give you peace of mind. Fiesta provides seven standard air bags. A protective safety cage made of boron - an element so strong it’s used in the aerospace industry- surrounds both driver and passengers. The 2012 Ford Fiesta Hatchback Squeezes every last drop.
