Festive Hatchback

Ford is determined to rattle the cages of a few rivals with its refreshed Fiesta that is small in size but big at heart.


Small-displacement engines are all the rage now and Ford is also getting into the game, by introducing its multi award-winning EcoBoost engine in the updated Fiesta.

Ford's popular supermini began its life in 1976. Six generations later, Ford's best-selling compact hatchback receives an improved formula that aims to turn a good car into a great one and to make Henry Ford a really proud man.

Fiesta means party in Spanish, so based on its name there's definitely got to be something really exciting about it.

No more greasy fuel caps with the capless refueling system in the Fiesta, which we find really cool

Exterior


In profile, the Fiesta looks essentially the same as its predecessor with its rakish lines and bold details. Nonetheless, there has been a little bit of fiddling up in front and the most notable change is the trapezoidal grille, which is now enlarged and moved higher in line with the company's new corporate face.


To complement the changes in front, a rear chrome strip and redesigned inner taillights complete the back end restyle.
 
With these cosmetic upgrades, the car has also grown a little. Standing at 3,969mm x 1,978 mm x 1,443mm (L x W x H), the car is now 19mm longer, 56mm wider and 10mm taller as compared to the outgoing model and this also contributes to a greater road presence than before.

The range-topping Fiesta Titanium gets 15-inch alloys as standard while the Fiesta Trend only has 15-inch steel wheels
