Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Ford Fiesta can deliver thrills, but it shows its age in too many ways for us to recommend.

Pros
Sharp handling
Thrilling Fiesta ST
Good optional infotainment
Decent fuel economy

Cons
Balky automatic transmission
Cramped back seat
Poor crash-test scores
Light on safety tech
To be discontinued

Ford has said it will stop producing sedans and most of its hatchbacks over the next few years, given the buying public's proclivity for crossovers. That's unfortunate because the 2019 Ford Fiesta is one of the best subcompact cars on the market.

Pros
Sporty handling in turns
Well-appointed interior with advanced technology options
ST model's zesty performance

Cons
Some rivals offer better ride quality and seat comfort
Limited cargo and rear-seat space

The 2019 Chevrolet Cruze gains some good content, but its advanced safety tech should be more accessible.

Pros
Versatile sedan, hatchback bodystyles
Good standard infotainment
Compelling turbodiesel option
Rides well

Cons
New look is hardly exciting
Automatic emergency braking only on range-topper
Price escalates with options
Could be sportier

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Smooth, refined gas engine
Unobtrusive engine stop-start system
Cabin comfort
Materials quality

Cons
Feels sluggish at 55 to 60 mph (gas engine)
Minimal steering feedback
Only one standard USB port
Less effective climate control when engine is in auto-stop mode

Chevrolet hopes a fresh new look will entice buyers to take a look at the 2019 Cruze. It has features that buyers in the compact class want, such as smartphone mirroring through a fast-acting 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, solid crash test scores and enjoyable handling.

Pros
Feels sporty and planted around turns
Touchscreen interface is easy to use
Available diesel-powered engine for high fuel economy

Cons
Front seats aren't particularly comfortable
Diesel engine's high upfront cost
Gas engine's disappointing acceleration and real-world fuel economy
