In this unique episode of TechnoBuffalo’s Driven, Jon gets to test drive a special little vehicle imported over from Europe, something U.S. drivers will never get a taste of. But that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy the 2013 Ford Fiesta’s 1 liter engine, which is a lot peppier than you’d expect. Paired with a manual transmission, the Fiesta is quick off the line and more than worthy around town. And it certainly looks great for its size.

To see a full breakdown of the 2013 European-speced Ford Fiesta, check out the video, which includes some of our thoughts on how it rides. It’s not often we get the opportunity to try out something that’s not intended for the U.S. market, and see the kind of differences companies make for different audiences.
