Helpful Expert Reply:

According to Saris, the Bones 2 # SA805BL will fit for your 2015 Ford Fiesta with spoiler.

We have not had a chance to test fit the bike rack here at etrailer, but according to Saris you will want to place the lower rack feet on the bumper and you will not be able to use the rear wiper when the rack is installed.

Due to the fact that this bike rack is a bumper supported rack you will not be able to open the hatch of your Fiesta when this is installed. Typically no trunk mounted bike rack will allow you to open the hatch when installed because of the potential harm or injury it can cause. The additional weight of the carrier can cause the door to close with no effort or jar loose of the connection points from the vehicle. If you wanted to access your hatch with the bikes mounted, I would instead recommend a hitch mounted bike rack like the Thule Doubletrack Pro XT # TH92BJ, which would fit the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24961 confirmed to fit your Fiesta Hatchback.

I have linked all the above mentioned parts, a few installation videos, and the most popular bike racks from 2015 Ford Fiesta owners.
