Ford Fiesta: 40MPG Highway, 29MPG City

Well, I’ve said a few things about the upcoming Ford Fiesta before, but now the EPA has given it the official fuel economy workout, and the results are impressive: 29 MPG in the city, and 40 MPG on the highway.  After getting their new 2011 Mustang V6 a rating of 19/31 city/highway, Ford is on a roll with its new small car.  The fuel economy numbers for the Fiesta are well above the average car, bordering on diesel and hybrid levels of fuel thriftiness.  Mind you, this is for Fiestas equipped with the optional automatic transmission.  The Fiestas rivals, namely the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris, get 5 and 4 less mpg on the highway, respectively.  The Fiesta will go on sale this summer, and looks to be a hot seller in the compact car arena.
