The 2015 Ford Fiesta has received an overall safety rating of four out of five possible stars after crash tests conducted by federal regulators.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has rated the subcompact car with four stars in the front crash test, two stars in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover crash test, Edmunds.com reported.

The Ford Fiesta has electronic stability control and antilock brakes as well as seven airbags, including a driver knee airbag. The four-star safety rating applies to the sedan and hatchback versions of the four-door car.

The vehicle has not yet received crash test ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The 2015 Ford Fiesta competes with the Chevrolet Sonic, which earned five stars for safety from the NHTSA in the 2015 model; the Kia Rio, which received four stars after the same tests; and the Hyundai Accent, which has not been rated.

The Fiesta has front-wheel drive and runs on a five-speed manual transmission, according to Edmunds. The subcompact's 1.6-liter engine produces 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque.

It is available in three exterior paints: Ingot Silver Metallic, Oxford White and Tuxedo Black Metallic.
