When you’re thinking about the Fiesta, you should start with the fuel economy. Your 2014 Ford Fiesta will get up to 41 MPG, the only subcompact to get more than 40 MPG according to Ford. Achieve 41 MPG when you choose the Super Fuel Economy Package, which includes the 1.6 liter engine and PowerShift automatic transmission.

The new EcoBoost engine was already named the “International Engine of the Year Award,” by a panel of 87 automotive journalists. The new engine received the highest score of any engine in the 15-year history of the awards.

But even though it’s small, the EcoBoost engine doesn’t disappoint. Ford says the Fiesta produces 123 horsepower, claiming that it delivers more power for its size than even the Lamborghini Aventador. Learn more: Ford engines are getting smarter.

The 2.5i Premium also comes with features including 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights, rear privacy glass, heated mirrors, windshield wiper de-icer, power seats, and leather steering wheel.

Review: 2013 Ford Expedition

The 2013 Ford Expedition remains one of the best vehicles for hauling a boat, hauling large cargo or hauling your kids around town.

The 2013 Expedition is one of the last vehicles to carry the traditional four-bar designed grille and has the classic Ford look. The Expedition has always been the top choice for those seeking a lot of space. You can fit up to 8 people on the inside, but when cargo needs are greater than people needs, simply fold down the seats. Then the Expedition becomes a makeshift moving van with up to 108.3 cubic feet on the Expedition and 130.8 on the Expedition Extended Length.

Review: 2014 Honda Odyssey

2014 Honda Odyssey

The updated 2014 Honda Odyssey has great new special features and great technology

The updated 2014 Honda Odyssey has hit the Waikem Honda showroom. With its genius features, updated styling and improved fuel economy, the Odyssey is still the ultimate family vehicle.

When you talk about what’s new, you have to start with HondaVac, the vacuum cleaner built right into the van. It seems so obvious now, but it did take until 2014 for someone to think of it. The vacuum is installed in cargo area, and features a long hose and two attachments. We know your kids are messy and sometimes there’s a spill in the second or third row. Now with the HondaVac you’ll be able to sweep out the van on the go. We love the HondaVac and think it’s a true game changer. It comes standard on the Elite Touring model.
