2011 Ford Fiesta vs. 2010 Honda Fit, 2011 Mazda 2 - Comparison Tests
Ego Shrinkers: Will Americans ever be able to accept a driving life in a confined but economical package?

Third place: 2011 Ford Fiesta SES


Highs: Rock-solid chassis, quiet on the road, high-class looks.

Lows: Slower than a Mumbai bureaucrat, worst fuel economy here, disconnected shifter, windshield glare.

The Verdict: Getting the bronze medal still means you

So what happen to Fiestas "40mpg" claim..
"And, if being slow wasn’t enough, the Fiesta also achieved the worst fuel economy during our trip, although 32 mpg isn’t exactly shameful. Having the heaviest-in-test curb weight never helps."
typical for car companies to slightly exaggerate fuel economy.
Definitely like the 2 though.

THE FIT IS GO!

And the Fiesta and 2 are on the same platform, different engines and options etc . . . Ford loads it up with Sync, whereas the 2 is supersuper light weight (something like 2300 lbs) with a smaller engine and less content.
