2017 Ford Fiesta vs 2017 Kia Rio

The 2017 Ford Fiesta may be the smallest model in the Ford lineup but, as the old saying goes, sometimes the best things come in small packages. Thanks to the new Ford Fiesta’s affordability, fuel efficient lower trims, performance-oriented Fiesta ST trim and fun-to-drive nature unlike any other on the market, you can’t go wrong with the 2017 Fiesta.

It can be easy to overlook the 2017 Ford Fiesta due to its size, but that would be a mistake. There’s a surprising amount of space inside the new Fiesta’s small frame, and with four 2017 Fiesta trims to choose from, there’s a new Ford Fiesta for everyone. It even has everything it needs to outmatch its competition. To see what we mean, let’s see how the new Fiesta compares to the new Kia Rio in a 2017 Ford Fiesta versus 2017 Kia Rio model comparison.
