For drivers in the greater Orlando area who need a fuel-conscious vehicle with a lot of personality, the 2018 Ford Fiesta tops our list. With a versatile exterior, efficient powertrain, and a cabin stuffed with high-tech features, the team at Peacock Ford found a lot to like about this compact car.

That's why we put together this 2018 Ford Fiesta review, so drivers around the Maitland and Winter Park areas can know what to expect when they get behind the wheel for a test drive.

2018 Ford Fiesta Engine Specs

 One of our favorite things about the 2018 Ford Fiesta is the versatile and efficient powertrain. The standard engine is a 1.6L I-4 that generates 120 horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque.

This engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission that gives you the ultimate control over your driving experience. With this configuration, you'll get an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 MPG city and 35 MPG highway.

A PowerShift 6-speed automatic transmission is also available with this engine. It provides an optimized performance and improves your high fuel economy to an EPA-estimated 37 highway MPG, making it a great choice for long drives up the coast.

For a sportier driving experience, you can upgrade to the available 1.6L EcoBoost® I-4, which generates 197 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque. It delivers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 MPG city and 33 MPG highway and comes paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Ford Fiesta Exterior

While the 2018 Ford Fiesta may be all business under the hood, the exterior is here to party. It offers several ways for you to show your true colors, including 10 different exterior color options. These range from your classic hues to more creative ones.

If you want a more energetic exterior, you can opt for colors like Bohai Bay Mint, Hot Pepper Red, and Outrageous Green Metallic. For a more traditional vibe, choose a neutral tone like White Platinum or Shadow Black.

This car also lets you choose between two different body styles: a sleek sedan and a versatile hatchback. The sedan offers up 12.8 cubic feet of trunk space and is a good choice for single commuters.

The trunk of the hatchback, on the other hand, gives you 14.9 cubic feet but opens up to reveal 25.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat folded flat. This configuration is ideal for moving back into the dorms at UCF or hitting the beach for a day of surfing.

2018 Fiesta Technology

 The Ford Fiesta may be a compact car, but it manages to pack in a lot of technology. Auto on/off headlamps, for example, are available, so you don't have to worry about draining your battery if you forget to turn them off overnight.

The SYNC® Voice Recognition Communications and Entertainment System comes standard, which allows you to link your Bluetooth®-enabled smartphone for hands-free calling and music streaming on-the-go. For even more smartphone integration, you can upgrade to the available SYNC® 3 system, which includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen for displaying turn-by-turn navigation and other information.
