Pros : Awesome suspension, control&steering,6 speed dual clutch transmission, Looks and features, Comfort

Cons : Price and lack of trip-tonic facility.

Let me start with mentioning that I had bought this car around 2 months back, after testing almost all the cars in this segment - I decided to by Ford Fiesta.  I loved the ride and handling for this new Ford Fiesta which is second to none. However, I had planned to purchase a manual transmission and had no plans for an automatic, the dealer at the dealership suggested that I try the automatic, as this was a dual clutch 6-speed transmission, which belongs to the class of BMWs and Mercs (I knew they are 6-14 speed and have dual clutch). I was sceptical, as I never liked automatics of thus segment, but I somehow tried this automatic and to my astonishment the Fiesta had a smooth transmission (obviously due to its dual clutch transmission), it was easy and effortless to drive in peak hour traffic. The ride quality and comfort was incomparable. Other cars in this segment lacked the luxury of a Ford suspension and ride quality. Engine was very responsive and linear unlike other European and Japanese (etc.) brands which provide a great initial torque and latter give a drag at high speeds. The Cabin is so well insulated that you will not hear even the harshest sound from outside (Simply WOW). In traffic, the car will glide you through and on Highways it with cruise you to your destination with comfort. A complete package - for Driving Enthusiasts and people who love to be in control. The built quality is another aspect which you will notice while test driving other cars, Ford Fiesta has a solid body and the doors are very heavy  (you can easily feel the difference), on other cars if you press the bonnet or door they will cave in, unlike the Ford. Manual transmission was equally impressive, and I fell in love the first time I drove Fiesta, however, the automatic stole my heart the end.    Look and Style Simple outstanding, Kinetic Design, Futuristic Interiors.   Comfort Due to well bolstered bucket seats it is very comfortable to drive. Rear space little less when compared with others, however it is more than enough for India families who are not usually 6.2 Ft+, as two 6 ft guys can sit in tandem with ease. Pickup Awesome, linear, very responsive engine and the car responds very well. Mileage Initially, I was getting very less mileage (I know new engines give less initial mileage). However, now it's amazing 12-14Kmph. That's a Wow   Best Features Automatic Transmission (6 speed dual clutch), 6 speaker Audio System, Electronic steering (Hats off to Ford) Needs to improve Ford should seriously provide other gadgets, which it provides in the top segment (trip meter could have been added in every model)and should work on the looks of its Alloy wheels.  Overall Experience Simply Excellent! :)
