Review: 2015 Ford Fiesta SFE, Frugal Flyer

After being introduced to the Fiesta in early 2014, we have been big fans. Tiny but feisty, the Fiesta has an overall goodness that’s disproportionate to its size, with a complimentary talent set that includes delightful styling, energetic handling and a high level of refinement inside.
