The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has certified the 2014 1.0-liter EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta at 45 mpg highway. The fuel economy rating not only establishes the Fiesta 1.0-liter EcoBoost as best-in-class, but it also outperforms some competitors’ diesels and hybrids on the highway driving cycle. The 2014 Honda Insight achieves 44mpg highway, while the 2014 Volkswagen Golf diesel with a manual transmission delivers 42mpg highway.

This also makes the Fiesta the only car in its class that produces more than 120 horsepower and achieves 45mpg on the highway. Plus, while the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is officially SAE-certified at 123 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque, it features an overboost function that allows it to make more than 145 lb.-ft. for up to 15 seconds.
