Ford Fiesta Named Best Back-to-School Car by KBB
The Ford Fiesta was named one of Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2015, which are vehicles that the KBB.com expert editors have hand-picked as their best recommendations for students. Each of the cars on the list is under $20,000 according to the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price.
The 2016 Fiesta was picked for its excellent combination of tech features, fun-to-drive nature and outstanding fuel efficiency. The new SYNC 3 system will arrive this year, and features enhanced voice recognition, a more user-friendly user interface and better smartphone integration.
KBB.com editors called the Fiesta a “good mix of sprightly sporty car and sensible smart car,” especially when equipped with the turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine that achieves up to 43 mpg highway.
The Fiesta also helps make driving easier with its long list of available tech and safety features, such as Intelligent Access with push button start that allows you to open your door with the key still in your pocket. Also available is a rear view camera and Reverse Sensing System, automatic headlamps and automatic climate control.
An available 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.
The interior of the Fiesta is more premium than you would expect in a compact car, with available leather-trimmed heated seats, ambient lighting throughout the cabin and a Sony audio system with HD radio and eight speakers.
