WISCASSET, Maine, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Lengthy commutes and business travel are unavoidable inconveniences many Americans face on a daily basis. In fact, according to a 2011 study by the U.S. Census Bureau, the average one-way commute takes 25.5 minutes. As drivers spend nearly an hour in their cars each day, vehicle attributes like fuel economy, connectivity and space become increasingly important.
Realizing many of its customers regularly travel between New Hampshire and Maine, Wiscasset Ford strives to inform drivers about the travel-friendly Ford models within the new vehicle lineup. For a number of reasons, the 2014 Ford Fiesta is one of the first models Wiscasset Ford recommends to its customers looking for a car that meets the demands of their daily drives.
First and foremost, the 2014 Fiesta offers exceptional fuel economy, as the base 1.6-liter four-cylinder model returns 29 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, according to Environmental Protection Agency estimates. An optional Super Fuel Economy package is available to boost those ratings to 30 mpg city and 41 mpg highway. New for the 2014 model year, the Ford Fiesta SE can be fitted with an EcoBoost 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that yields a best-in-class fuel-economy rating of 45 mpg.
In addition to its efficient powertrain options, the 2014 Ford Fiesta makes for an entertaining ride through various connectivity options. In the base configuration, the Fiesta offers voice-controlled Ford Sync functions, a USB interface and a number of app-based services to keep drivers connected on the go. An upgrade to the Ford Fiesta SE trim with the addition of the Appearance package equips the subcompact car with the MyFord Touch interface, which allows for easy smartphone integration.
