Last year the compact sedan received an upgrade regarding its aesthetics, therefore the 2015 alterations are limited.

According to critics within the industry, the cabin of the Fiesta sedan features a combination of hard plastics and soft materials. The front seats are spacious as well as quite comfortable but insiders contend that the rear seating is not ideal for adult passengers due to its confining nature; even for a subcompact vehicle.

Although, the tradeoff is an incredibly quiet ride, even at highway speeds.
The chassis of the vehicle boasts impeccable bump suppression as well as damping although the vehicle’s electric power steering is not the very talkative or expedient.
