2012 Ford Fiesta Hatchback SE

2012 Ford Fiesta Hatchback SE

Price: $16,765.
Fuel economy: 29 mpg city and 39 mpg highway.

Although some people prefer driving a sedan, we chose the hatchback version of the 2012 Ford Fiesta because of its stylish lines.

Stepping up to the Fiesta SE is a no-brainer because it comes with full power accessories.

In addition to its good looks, the Fiesta wins points for its nimble handling. Only the Sonic is easier to fit into most city parking spaces. At 15.4 cubic feet, Fiesta's cargo area is in the middle of our pack.

The engine is a peppy 120-horsepower, 1.6-liter, four-cylinder. The posted price reflects the $1,095 premium for the six-speed, driver-shiftable, automatic transmission.

Included standard features: remote keyless entry, seven air bags, air conditioning, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, trip computer and a four-speaker audio system with CD player and auxiliary input jack.
