This just in from CNN Money’s website — Fiesta catches the magzine’s fancy as a money-sipping, gas-sipping deal:
Price: $13,320 – $17,120
Mileage: 28 City / 37 Hwy
Surprise! The most fuel efficient, fun-to-drive inexpensive subcompact sold in America is the Ford Fiesta
Seriously, it’s true
And it gets even crazier because the most fun to drive Ford Fiesta — ironically the one with the automatic transmission — is also the most fuel efficient.
No, it’s not backwards day at CNNMoney.com. The Fiesta’s twin-clutch automatic transmission sends power almost continuously to the wheels, the gear switches happening almost instantaneously. And that nicely complements the Fiesta’s quick, responsive handling.
