While cars may look similar, what comes under the hood can range from awesome to horrible. But what car has its best engine at the bottom of the range?

Now, I know that the EcoBoost three cylinder in the Ford Fiesta and Focus isn’t technically a base engine, but it is a sweet heart that just might be the best engine that you can get in either car. And yes, I’m including the ST versions.

What do you think?
