The new-look Fiesta is set to continue the success of Ford's ever-popular compact car with a sleek, fresh face. Not only has the exterior body design been refreshed; the design team has also enhanced the interior of the car, updating both the onboard technology and the cabin design. There's a great new range of high-technology equipment as standard, plus the cosmetic facelift really brings the Fiesta into the most modern motoring style.
Ford's top team of designers has developed a new contemporary front fascia with sleek lines on the bonnet and a dynamic grille, plus stylishly sculpted bumpers and redesigned LED-based headlights to save energy and provide better night-time illumination. The new Fiesta also features a 'power-dome' hood, which enhances the overall aerodynamics of the vehicle, reducing drag and improving efficiency.
Inside the cabin, the updates are more understated. Subtle tweaks have been made to fine-tune an already well-designed cockpit. New materials and extra metallic trim help create a more modern edge, while retaining the well-loved Fiesta feel. The car now benefits from a new infotainment system too, which allows the driver easily accessible control while at the wheel.
The entry-level 1.0-litre petrol engine offers 79bhp, whilst other options include a 1.25-litre with either 59bhp or 81bhp, and a 104bhp 1.6-litre. What's more, the new Fiesta is now available with Ford's revolutionary new 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine. This award-winning engine offers responsive performance and ultra-efficient running costs. If you're looking for a diesel model, there is a choice between the new 74bhp 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine and the 94bhp 1.6-litre engine from the outgoing Fiesta line-up. In total there are seven powertrain options, truly offering something for everyone.
As for safety technology, the new Fiesta features Active City Stop, a system designed to reduce low-speed impacts or collisions while in traffic. It has also been designed with MyKey – an innovative new technology that allows parents to encourage their children to be safer drivers by arranging pre-sets of crucial elements such as top speed. The Fiesta will also include the technology necessary for the Emergency Assist feature, which connects occupants of the vehicle directly with regional emergency services in the event of an accident.
