I'm a big fan of this car. I agree the dashboard is a bit nuts, but it's comfortable, efficient, practical car that is plenty fun to drive. The DSG can be a bit annoying, but I find them annoying in general and Ford's implementation is no worse than any of the others.
Most of these cars have a 1.6l direct injected motor, but in '14-'16 they offered a turbocharged 1.0l three cylinder and of course there is the 1.6 turbo "ST." Both turbo motors are a hoot, but the ST is a fantastic car to drive. I keep thinking about buying one - several friends have. A 200hp 2700lb car that gets 30+mpg is a brilliant package. Last month I helped a friend replaced her wrecked Civic Hybrid and we ended up with a '14 Fiesta SE that she adores. That did nothing but encourage me even more to pick up an ST. ;)
