The 2015 Ford Fiesta is many things: sensible, efficient, lively, and surprisingly, a real looker, to-boot.
Oh, and apparently, really cool.
That’s what Kelley Blue Book says of the subcompact, anyway, who named the car to their list of the “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000.” The website lauds the Ford Fiesta’s “bold style and European-rooted driving dynamics,” and the supermini car is listed in 6th place on the list.
This is the second straight year in which the Ford Fiesta has made KBB‘s sub-eighteen-grand cool list, and it comes in just under the Honda Civic. Notably, the website does not specify whether the award applies to the sedan body style, the hatchback, or both. As we see it, the hatchback is the only proper body style in which to order a Ford Fiesta, as it’s the original, intended configuration for the car. The sedan was created exclusively for the US market because of America’s general aversion to anything with a rear hatch.
But of course, that’s just us. No valid complaint can really be made against the Ford Fiesta sedan, as you’re still getting the same great chassis, efficiency, and most of the sharp looks possessed by the 5-door.
