2016 Toyota Corolla vs 2016 Ford Fiesta
The Toyota Corolla is a flagship compact sedan that has been on the market for over 11 generations already. This model is sold all over the world, and it has become one of the most successful and widely-known nameplates in automotive history. In fact, the Corolla has been the best-selling compact car in the United States for the better part of the last 20 years. The Corolla was completely redesigned within the last couple years, and that has helped skyrocket the popularity of this compact sedan even more. The new 2016 Toyota Corolla takes everything that we already love about this car and improves upon it slightly. As a result, the 2016 Toyota Corolla is the best version of this vehicle to ever roll into a Toyota showroom.
The compact car segment is by far one of the most popular categories here in America. As a result, the Corolla has a lot of competition. Even though there are so many vehicles in the segment, the Corolla continues to be one of the best, year after year. One of the vehicles that competes directly against the Corolla every year is Ford’s Fiesta model. The Fiesta has been on the market for a very long time, and is equally as iconic. Therefore, we have decided to match up the new 2016 Toyota Corolla vs 2016 Ford Fiesta in order to show the ways that the Corolla is superior to the competition.
2016 Toyota Corolla: Sporty and Efficient
One of the things that people have always loved about the Corolla is how fun it is to drive, and that is especially true for the new 2016 model year. The new 2016 Toyota Corolla is powered by a surprisingly spry 1.8-liter I-4 engine that has a lot of juice. This powertrain is able to produce an outstanding 132 horsepower with 120 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the 2016 Ford Fiesta is only able to make 120 horsepower with 112 pound-feet of torque. Therefore, the 2016 Ford Fiesta is very underpowered in comparison to the Corolla, and offers a bland driving experience. If you are looking for sporty driving dynamics and peppy performance, the Corolla is the compact sedan you have been looking for.
Typically, when a vehicle boasts great performance, you have to sacrifice on the fuel economy rating. However, that is simply not the case with the all-new 2016 Toyota Corolla. The Corolla offers the best of both worlds in regards to performance and fuel economy. In fact, the Corolla boasts a slightly better fuel economy rating than the Fiesta, even though it has significantly more power.
