Compared To Toyota Yaris 2015



For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Ford Fiesta are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Toyota Yaris doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

The Fiesta Titanium has standard Reverse Sensing System to help warn drivers about vehicles, pedestrians or other obstacles behind their vehicle. The Fiesta Titanium also has a standard backup monitor to help drivers see any and all obstacles behind their vehicle. The Yaris doesn’t offer any parking assist system.

The Fiesta’s blind spot mirrors use wide-angle convex mirrors mounted in the corner of each side view mirror to reveal objects that may be in the driver’s blind spots. The Yaris doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver’s blind spots.

The Fiesta SE/Titanium has standard SYNC, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to get turn-by-turn driving directions or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Yaris doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the Fiesta and the Yaris have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front-wheel drive, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

Compared To Mitsubishi Lancer 2015



The Fiesta’s blind spot mirrors use wide-angle convex mirrors mounted in the corner of each side view mirror to reveal objects that may be in the driver’s blind spots. The Lancer doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver’s blind spots.
