5 Speed vs 6 Speed? (Resolved)


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I'm close to finalising a deal for a 1.0L Ecoboost Fiesta, it's a 5 speed but I've realised there are 6 speed variants. I'm just curious to the differences in the driving experience, and if it's worth putting the extra money in for any benefits it may have?

The 5 speed is just fine. On 125 PS version you get plenty of torque for accelerating and the gears are resonable long.

You can cruise in 5th at 100 km/h just above 2k rpm. Fine for me. On 150 km/h it's just above 3k rpm.

Its only a bit stupid around town, you have to switch a lot between 2nd and 3rd. (nothing to serious, you get used to :) )
