The 2019 Ford Fiesta is a subcompact car with seating for five and it is offered in sedan and four-door hatchback body styles. Power comes from a 120-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine which matches with a five-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A high-performance Fiesta ST includes a 197-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that teams with a six-speed manual.
Just the 2019 Ford Fiesta SE tier comes as either a sedan and a hatchback. The S configuration is sedan only while the higher-performance ST-Line and ST trims are hatchbacks only. Hatchback configuration for the SE adds $300.
Each 2019 Ford Fiesta includes seven airbags (front, front side, driver’s knee, and full-size side-curtain). Then there are the compulsory anti-lock brakes (discs at each corner of the ST, rear drums on the others), and stability and traction control.

The 2019 Ford Fiesta is a subcompact car offered in two body styles: sedan and a four-door hatchback. The sedan is available at S and SE trims, while the hatchback is sold from the SE and ST-Line trims along with a high-performance ST version. The reasonably priced entry-level model S is equipped, however, the SE provides more tech features, like the Sync 3 infotainment program with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The high-performance ST includes a six-speed manual, a sport-tuned suspension, and a solid turbocharged engine.
The Fiesta ST adds a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (197 hp, 202 lb-ft) that is paired only to a six-speed manual transmission. Also included are 17-inch wheels and tires with summer performance tires, a sport-tuned suspension, upgraded brakes, and quicker steering. You also get keyless entry and ignition, distinctive interior configuration, a trip computer, adjustable lumbar support for the driver, automatic climate control, and an 8-speaker Sony audio system with HD radio. The ST Recaro package adds heated Recaro front sport seats (like height adjustments), leather and fabric upholstery and heated mirrors. Also available are black 17-inch wheels and tires with red brake calipers.
A few other subcompacts provide more room and a larger cargo area — especially, the Honda Fit — but the 2019 Ford Fiesta’s character could win you over. If you are in the market for a small car that provides a little something extra, make sure you check out the Fiesta while you still can — this will be the Fiesta’s last year of production.
