18: 1978-1980 Fiesta
Believe it or not, there was an earlier generation of the Fiesta that was even worse than the later models. The underpowered car was designed after the failure of the Pinto and was poised to compete with compacts like the Dodge Omni. The interior was about as bare as you could get and rear-seat space was minimal at best. The performance of the 54 horsepower engine was nonexistent.
While the retail price of the car was more than affordable enough, the consumers just didn’t gravitate to it. Had the Fiesta has had a more competitive design it might have fared better against the Japanese rivals. But without more features and a better interior, the Fiesta just couldn’t compete.
