All three models have front wheel drive and four valves. In the end they can offer quite a nice fuel economy. The least successful in this sense if Chevrolet, as it offers 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, Ford Fiesta takes the second place with its 29 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, the best one appears to be new Hyundai Accent with 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.
In the end we have to say that Hyundai wins the fight, even though in minor strengths of it.
