KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Stubborn gas prices refuse to drop, causing a growing number of consumers to turn to subcompact and hybrid cars, as they offer some of the highest fuel economy ratings of any cars in the automotive market. Two of the most efficient vehicles on the market can be found in the Ford lineup and include the 2014 Ford Fiesta and the 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid, both of which are currently available at Matt Ford, an automotive dealership near Kansas City, Mo.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta continues to find success as the subcompact car offers an extremely high fuel economy rating as well as a spacious interior which allows the hatchback to accommodate over 25 cubic feet of cargo when the split-folding rear seatback is collapsed. Even when the seat is in use, the five-passenger Fiesta offers 15 cubic feet of storage space behind the second row, making it one of the most spacious subcompact cars in the segment.
Consumers are sure to appreciate that the Fiesta is made with an efficient 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine which delivers the highest fuel economy rating of any engine offered under the hood of the subcompact car. The engine comes as part as the optional Super Fuel Economy package and is able to produce fuel economy ratings of 32 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway. Even without the SFE package, the Fiesta is capable of producing a highway fuel economy rating of 39 mpg, making it a great vehicle for consumers looking to save money at the pumps.
The 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid is capable of fuel economy ratings similar to the Fiesta, but where the hybrid really becomes beneficial is in the city. The C-Max Hybrid is able to achieve fuel economy ratings of 45 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway without ever requiring a power source other than gasoline. Consumers looking for an even more eco-friendly vehicle can opt for the plug-in version of the C-Max which is able to deliver mpg-equivalent ratings of 108 in the city and 92 on the highway.
The 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid and 2014 Ford Fiesta are currently for sale in Kansas City, Mo. Consumers that are interested in finding out more about either of the fuel-efficient vehicles are encouraged to contact the experts at Matt Ford. Questions can be directed to the dealership's sales staff, which can be reached by phone at 816-650-3136, or through the Matt Ford website at www.mattford.com.
