The STis definitely our favorite version of the Ford Fiesta, butit's far from the only one that's fun to drive. In fact, the Fiesta with the smallest engineFord puts in a car ended up being an absolute blast. Its tiny 1.0-liter turbocharged I-3 only makes 123 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, but it's remarkably refined and a hoot to wring out. Sadly, it won't be an option for U.S. customersanymore.

Considering how much we enjoyed that little 1.0-liter, this is disappointing news. But at the same time, it was probably inevitable. Subcompact sales are down overall in the U.S., and the three-cylinder cost about $1,000 more than the base engine. It offered more torque and better fuel economy, but the mpg gains were minimal.
