MPGomatic.com puts a 2011 Ford Fiesta SES hatchback to a week-long test
drive, rolling up over 600 miles. [ Full Review:
http://www.mpgomatic.com/2010/09/19/2011-ford-fiesta-review/ ] This Fiesta

The Fiesta's primary competitors include the Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, and
Nissan Versa. The Mazda2 is based on the Fiesta platform.
Ken Block drives an AWD Ford Fiesta in WRC, Global Rallycross, and in his
Gymkhana videos. Tanner Foust drives an AWD Ford Fiesta in European
Rallycross Championship and Global Rallycross. The Fiesta is not currently
available in AWD. No plans have been announced. If you want to make your

2014 Ford Fiesta SFE EcoBoost 1.0L MPG Road Test
We put a remarkable new 1.0 liter EcoBoost Ford Fiesta to a three-part MPG Road
Test. Can the tiny three-cylinder turbocharged engine deliver 40 MPG? 50 MPG? 60
It all depends on how, when, and where you drive it ...
The first leg of the road test is a round trip from central NJ to Pottstown
PA, primarily on Interstate Highway 78. The second leg is a run from
Allentown, NJ to Long Beach Island through the Jersey Pinelands on Route
539 to Route 72, over the Causeway. The third leg is a trip up the Jersey
Turnpike into Manhattan, via the Holland Tunnel.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost
is a $995 option. It is only available on the SE model and is only offered
with a five-speed manual transmission.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs Chevy Cruze Eco Challenge Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the most fun hybrid or eco car to drive?
It certainly isn't the Toyota Prius, but it could very well be the 2011
Hyundai Sonata Hybrid or the 2011 Chevy Cruze Eco with the manual
transmission. Both cars get 40 or more MPG on the highway and both cars are
fun to drive...at least as fun as high mileage cars can be. So which one is
the better car. Check out this first drive review.
Chevrolet Cruze review from Consumer Reports
The nicely-finished Chevy Cruze feels solid and substantial and is pleasant
to drive. But it delivers lackluster fuel economy and the backseat is
tight. Find more car reviews on our website:
2015 Chevy Cruze: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Sporting a (slight) refresh, the 2015 Chevrolet
Cruze debuts at the 2014 New York Auto Show. Fortunately, all of these
updates should improve consumer's issues with the vehicle. The updates
consist of a revised nose, LED daytime running-lights (on LT and LTS
models), new colors, revised cup-holders, movement of the trunk-relase
switch to the center console and door-locking switches are now on the front

2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco 6MT Review, Walkaround, Start Up & Rev
A decent looking special fuel economy version of the Cruze with class
leading efficiency numbers... too bad that only applies to the manual
transmission models which aren't as popular with consumers vs the automatic
and the interior is a bit of a let down.
"After decades of toiling in the minor leagues, Chevrolet makes it to the
show with its much-improved compact sedan entry, the 2011 Cruze."
2013 Chevrolet Cruze LT Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
GM started an upward trend in the compact class when the Cruze replaced the
lackluster Cobalt in 2011. With clean styling, a spacious cabin, a peppy turbo engine, and competitive
fuel-efficiency the Chevrolet Cruze looked to erase any bad memories left
by its predecessors. With renewed competition from Mazda, Honda, and
Toyota, it may be time for a refresh soon.
