According to Edmunds:

1995 Honda Civic sedan curb weight: 2313 lbs.
2013 Ford Focus sedan curb weight: 2907 lbs.

The '13 Fiesta is closer in weight and size to the '95 Civic than either the '13 Focus or the '13 Civic. Probably would get you similar fuel economy, too. Newtonian physics still rule the day.
