One of the best performance bargains on the market, the Ford Fiesta ST, just became even cheaper for 2015, as Ford has reduced prices on the entire 2015 Ford Fiesta lineup by between $235 and $485. The base 2015 Ford Fiesta S sedan now starts at $14,690, and the 2015 Ford Fiesta ST hot hatch costs just $21,740, both with destination.
A few changes accompany this price reduction, as the 2015 Ford Fiesta has a new exterior color, new wheels, revised seat fabric, and some slight equipment changes like a new optional stripe graphic package. All 2015 Ford Fiesta sedan and hatchback models still come standard with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and a five-speed manual, with a six-speed automatic as a $1095 option. A 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine still costs $995 extra on SE models with the manual transmission. S, SE, and Titanium models are available for both sedan and hatchback bodystyles, while the high-performance Fiesta ST is available only as a hatchback.
The Ford Fiesta ST was one of our 2014 Automobile Magazine All-Star winners, and this new lower price cements its place near the top of the sport compact segment, as it can run with significantly more expensive cars like the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Subaru WRX, and even its larger Ford Focus ST sibling in terms of smiles-per-dollar.
For the mainstream Fiesta lineup, the price reduction makes the 2015 Ford Fiesta one of the cheapest subcompacts on the market, as its new lower base price is undercut only by the 2015 Nissan Versa’s $12,800 starting price. The 2015 Kia Rio costs $14,700, the 2015 Honda Fit starts at $16,315, and the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic costs $14,995.
