Most of the best things come in small packages. For example, the 2017 Ford Fiesta is a small vehicle that still packs quite a punch. The standard 1.6L 4-cylinder provides 120 horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque, which is more than enough to get this subcompact car on the road. If you crave more power, there are two other engine options, with horsepower topping out at 197. The 2017 Fiesta also offers a five or six-speed manual transmission on most trims. Automatic transmission is also available on all trims.

The 2017 Ford Fiesta has many standard features that aren't available on the Kia Rio. The Ford Fiesta provides access to Ford SYNC® and encourages smart phone connectivity. With a hands-free communications system, front console LCD screen, and Bluetooth connectivity standard on all trim levels, the 2017 Ford Fiesta allows occupants to remain connected and safe with voice activated commands.


With all the standard technologies on the 2017 Fiesta, one would think that is would be a much more expensive vehicle. However, the suggested retail price of the 2017 Ford Fiesta starts at $13,660. Though the base Kia Rio is $500 more than the Fiesta, and would need upgrading in order to access the standard features on the 2017 Fiesta. And while the 2017 Kia Rio offers one more mile per gallon for highway driving, the difference doesn't counteract the great price of the 2017 Ford Fiesta.
