2018 Ford Fiesta vs 2018 Toyota Yaris

Subcompact cars are a great choice for city driving, with their nimble size and maneuverability. Also, with their lower price tag, they are an excellent choice for car buyers on a tight budget. A standout model in the subcompact segment is the Ford Fiesta, with its sporty styling, fun-to-drive nature, high-level efficiency, and a wealth of advanced technologies. One of the subcompact competitors of the new Fiesta is the Toyota Yaris. See how they measure up in this 2018 Ford Fiesta vs 2018 Toyota Yaris comparison.

On the performance front, there’s very little competition between the Fiesta and Yaris. While the Yaris only offers a fairly weak 106-hp 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine, the Fiesta offers two sophisticated engine choices. The 1.6L Ti-VCT I-4 engine generates 120 horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque — and if you desire a more powerful driving experience, you can get the 1.6L EcoBoost I-4, which doles out 197 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque. Buyers of the Fiesta have three transmission choices: the five-speed manual, six-speed manual, and PowerShift six-speed automatic. Also, with its responsive handling, lightweight design, and a turning diameter of only 34.4 ft (10.49 m), the Fiesta can handle the curves and corners with ease.
