If you’re a fan of compact, economical cars, or that just happens to be what fits your current needs and budget, you’ve probably at least considered the Ford Fiesta. Living up to its name, the Fiesta is a truly fun-to-drive car that’s great on gas mileage and pretty easy on the eyes, too! Depending on how much of a driving enthusiast you are, you might even be wondering whether the Ford Fiesta comes with a manual transmission. Not only does it help keep costs down, but some people genuinely enjoy shifting themselves rather than having it happen automatically. If that’s you, you’ll be happy to know that the base 2016 Fiesta does come with a manual transmission! What else is included? We’ll let you know below:
Standard features on the base Ford Fiesta
The base Fiesta model is called the S, and while it’s the most pared down version of the car, it’s actually got quite a bit of standard equipment included. With a starting MSRP of just over $14,000, you might expect some pretty meager offerings, but the Fiesta S comes with the following:
- SYNC infotainment with AM/FM, CD player, mp3 capability, and a 6-speaker audio system
- 12-volt auxiliary powerpoint
- Ice Blue cluster lighting
- Manual tilt and telescopic steering wheel
- Easy Fuel Capless Fuel Filler
- Solar tinted glass
- Hill Start Assist
Advanced Safety Comes Standard on the 2016 Fiesta
If you’re looking for today’s top safety features, you don’t need to limit yourself to top trim levels and upgraded models – you can find plenty of great technology in the fun little Fiesta! This includes AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, Child-Safety rear door locks, seven standard airbags as well as side-curtain and driver’s knee airbags, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and the SOS Post-Crash Alert System.
