OSSEO, Wis., May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Commuters living in the Eau Claire area are beginning to reap all of the benefits provided by the 2014 Ford Fiesta, which is one of the most fuel efficient Ford models powered by a single engine. Efficiency is at the forefront of the Fiesta's design, but the subcompact car also offers a number of other advantages, including surprisingly-impressive performance.

Every trim of the Fiesta offers a balance of efficiency and power, but as there are three engines offered under the hood of the Fiesta, there is one that delivers more efficiency-wise, and another that is more capable of satisfying the needs of all the efficiency-conscious power junkies out there.

Consumers who are after sporty performance and styling are sure to find that the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST is the best of the available trim options. The Fiesta ST is powered by a four-cylinder engine which comes turbocharged to help the engine deliver nearly 200 horsepower.

One of the most popular engine options found in the Fiesta, however, is the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, which will also be offered in the 2015 Ford Focus. When equipped with the three-cylinder engine, the Fiesta is able to achieve a best-in-class highway fuel economy rating of 45 mpg.

Although the Ford Fiesta is classified as a subcompact car, it benefits from a five-door hatchback design that allows it to maximize storage capabilities. When the vehicle is not at the five-passenger capacity, the rear seat can be collapsed to provide just over 25 cubic feet of cargo space.

As the 2014 Ford Fiesta is capable of providing such impressive levels of performance, efficiency and versatility, it comes as no surprise that so many Eau Claire residents are trading in their current vehicles for the subcompact Fiesta at Osseo Auto, a Ford and Chevy dealer near Eau Claire, Wis.

Those interested in learning more about the Fiesta are encouraged to visit the Osseo Auto website where more information about the Fiesta can be found. Questions can be directed to the dealership's sales staff, which can be reached by phone at 715-597-3185, or through the website at www.osseoauto.com.
