2014 Ford Fiesta SE EcoBoost Sedan Review and Quick Spin
Last summer, Ford invited me to drive and review its revamped 2014 Fiesta, which receives styling changes, new safety and infotainment technologies, powertrain updates, and more. However, at the time, Ford hadn’t launched its new Fiesta EcoBoost model, which is equipped with a turbocharged, 1.0-liter 3-cylinder, one that journalists around the world apparently adore.
Naturally, I’ve been curious about the Fiesta’s optional turbocharged, 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine, which costs an extra $995 but is rated to get 36 mpg in combined driving, handily beating the standard Fiesta’s 31-mpg rating. Having now spent a week driving the Fiesta EcoBoost, I’m duly impressed, but I didn’t get the fuel economy that the EPA promised.
