I'm impressed no matter what, but 2700lb for a subcompact FWD car is too much. I'd be more impressed if they could keep it under 2500lb but that would likely require removing all of the creature comforts like sound deadening and electronics.
(I mean, my Focus weighs about 2700lb so a Fiesta should definitely weigh less.)
