2016 Ford Fiesta Named Top 10 KBB Back-to-School Car
Ford’s fuel-efficient and fun Fiesta was named one of Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2015. These are new vehicles that the KBB.com expert editors have hand-picked as their best recommendations for students this year. Every car on the list must be under $20,000 according to the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price.
The 2016 Fiesta made the list because of its winning combination of tech features, fun-to-drive nature and outstanding fuel efficiency. SYNC 3, Ford’s newest infotainment system, will arrive this year and features enhanced voice recognition, a more user-friendly user interface and better smartphone integration.
KBB.com editors said the Fiesta was a “good mix of sprightly sporty car and sensible smart car.” This is especially true when equipped with the turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine that achieves up to 43 mpg highway with the SE EcoBoost Fuel Economy package.
The Ford Fiesta also makes driving easier with its advanced tech and safety features, including Intelligent Access with push button start that allows you to open your door with the key still in your pocket. Other features available are a rear view camera and Reverse Sensing System, automatic headlamps and automatic climate control.
An optional dual dry-clutch PowerShift six-speed automatic transmission gives you the performance of a manual transmission with the smoothness and ease of use of an automatic. The standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine produces 120 hp and is engineered for maximum efficiency without sacrificing performance.
The interior of the Fiesta is also more luxurious than you might expect in a small car, with available leather-trimmed heated seats, ambient lighting throughout the cabin and a Sony audio system with HD radio and eight speakers.
