COLOGNE, Germany – Yesterday, @FordOnline exclusively brought you the first images of the new Ford Fiesta. Here’s all you need to know about the compact hatchback that’s more future-ready than ever.
New Ford Fiesta’s bold, distinctive exterior delivers more road presence. Trend, Titanium, ST-Line and Active models each benefit from unique styling elements alongside an expanded range of exterior colours, wheel designs and interior finishes. The Fiesta range is also expanded with new Vignale packs that amplify the Titanium, ST Line and Active personalities with luxury specifications, in addition to highly-specified X variants.
Latest generation technologies help ensure new Fiesta is better equipped than ever for intelligent, connected driving experiences. LED headlights are for the first time introduced to all Fiesta variants, with advanced Matrix LED technology available that offers Glare-Free High Beam functionality and can also adapt headlight beam patterns for better visibility in challenging conditions.
The new Fiesta also introduces a 12.3-inch digital instrument display that helps drivers stay informed for relaxing journeys. Local Hazard Information and Wrong-Way Alert make their Fiesta debuts among a suite of sophisticated driver assistance technologies.
Electrified powertrains will help new Fiesta drivers save fuel and reduce emissions while maximising driving fun. Ford EcoBoost Hybrid 48-volt mild hybrid technology helps optimise fuel efficiency while simultaneously enhancing Fiesta’s acclaimed driving dynamics with responsive acceleration. The technology works hand-in-hand with Ford’s Powershift seven-speed automatic transmission option for fast, seamless gearchanges and the most comfortable and confidence-inspiring Fiesta driving experience.
For the ultimate in Fiesta performance, there’s also a new Fiesta ST that gets Matrix LED headlights, new in-house-developed Performance Seats, sporty design details including a new Chrystaline Grey front grille and striking Mean Green exterior paint option – as well as a 10 per cent peak torque boost to 320 Nm.
“Moving with the times to set new standards for fun-to-drive, technology and efficiency has been a huge part of Fiesta’s enduring success,” said Roelant de Waard, general manager, Passenger Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “The new Fiesta is another big leap forward for the small car segment, and offers a model to suit every lifestyle.”
