2015 Ford Focus Hatchback
Pros: Invigorating performance of ST model; good ride quality for a subcompact; all versions have a nimble, fun-to-drive character

Cons: Limited passenger and cargo room; unconventional control layout; occasionally clunky performance from automated-manual transmission

CG Says: Save for some minor trim revisions, Ford’s subcompact car stands pat for 2015. An available 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine, a performance-oriented ST model, and availability of the MyFord Touch infotainment system were added to the Fiesta lineup last year. Ford touts Fiesta as a sporty, upscale subcompact, and we mostly agree. Fuel economy with the base engine has been terrific in our tests, but we prefer the slick 5-speed manual to the PowerShift 6-speed automated manual. The delightful ST model delivers high-performance driving thrills with little compromise in day-to-day practicality, save for a stiffer ride and confining front bucket seats. Fiesta’s greatest weakness has been its relatively cramped passenger and cargo accommodations. While it isn’t our favorite subcompact, Fiesta is worthy of consideration.
