    just released in Australia for 22k drive away, that would put it in the mid to low teens in america

    Achieves 3.7L/100km which is 65MPG in imperial terms. Thats better than a prius.

    Runs a 1.6L Turbo Diesel engine.

    they usually make more power, twice the torque and use less fuel than the petrol equivilent.

    And you are not restricted by octane levels, which means you can make INSANE amount of power with very little problems tuning wise

    because the fiesta is probably somewhat fun to drive and more efficient. Why pay 10k more to drive an appliance?
