2014 Ford Fiesta SFE EcoBoost

The Good With only 1 liter of displacement, the 2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost gets excellent fuel economy and boasts good power figures. Ford Sync allows voice command for stereo and phone control, and integrates apps.

The Bad The Fiesta EcoBoost requires more skill than a typical manual transmission car, and Ford keeps the option list very limited. The cabin tech interface forces a ridiculous amount of button pushing for even simple tasks.

The Bottom Line The 2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost gets extraordinary fuel economy, but the skill required to drive it and the limited options available will limit its appeal.

3-cylinder Ford Fiesta gets hybrid fuel economy

Editor's note: Ford revised its EPA fuel economy numbers for the 2014 Ford Fiesta SFE EcoBoost. The new numbers show 31 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway. This review has been updated to reflect the new numbers.

Small-displacement engines are familiar in Europe, but something of a novelty in the US. And three-cylinder engines are about as rare as a rude Canadian. Up until now, three-cylinder cars in the US came from overseas, but now Ford is getting into the game, with the 2014 Fiesta EcoBoost.

This version of the Fiesta is identical to the standard Fiesta in form and cabin appointments, with a few option limitations. However, the standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder makes way for Ford's mighty 1-liter EcoBoost engine.
