A new exterior design, increased differentiation across trim levels and a series of mild-hybrid engines are being offered with the new Ford Fiesta.

18 Sep 2021 | International News : U.K.

Ford has updated its Fiesta supermini.

The new car sports a new bonnet design that increases the height of the nose, combined with larger upper grilles. Also new here is the placement of the Ford oval badge, which has moved down within the grille, rather than on the bonnet lip, a move that Ford states gives the car added road presence.

The Ford Fiesta now has a black outer finish around its rear LED lights
LED head lights are now standard for the Ford Fiesta, while the standard lights at the rear get new black surrounds for a more sophisticated appearance, while the available LED rear lights are completed with a Premium Black outer finish.

Each new Fiesta variant in Europe will also get a more differentiated personality with unique fascia and grille designs alongside signature exterior and interior design elements.

The 'Trend' and 'Titanium' series feature a broad upper grille with strong horizontal strakes and a high gloss chrome surround, with distinctive side vents. Titanium also features upper grille horizontal bars finished in hot-stamped chrome, matched with chrome window surrounds.

The Ford Performance-inspired 'ST-Line' meanwhile, offers a sportier character and is recognisable by its new upper grille with deeper inset and gloss black honeycomb finish. Wide side vents are finished in body colour and a larger lower grille adds to the purposeful appearance.

8.0-inch central touchscreen houses Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system, which comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatability
The SUV-inspired 'Active' variant meanwhile gets more rugged design cues for an adventurous character. A wide upper grille features strong vertical strakes finished in gloss black, with taller and more prominent side vents reflecting the Active's taller, crossover stance.

The new Ford Fiesta also gets a 12.3-inch, fully-configurable TFT digital instrument in the cabin, giving drivers the ability to personalise and prioritise information displays including navigation notifications.

The cluster features uniquely-themed displays to correspond with selected drive modes, and a separate area for high-priority information such as driver assistance technologies.

Standard FordPass Connect modem technology will also allow a selection of convenient features to be controlled remotely using the FordPass app. Customers can operate Door Lock/Unlock, Remote Start for Fiesta models with seven-speed automatic transmission, Vehicle Locator, and access the Vehicle Status feature to check their fuel level, alarm status, tyre pressures, oil life and more.

The new Ford Fiesta is powered by a 1.0-litre EcoBoost 48V mild-hybrid engine, available with either 123bhp and 153bhp. Both these engines can be combined with a six-speed manual transmission, although the 123bhp variant can be had with Ford's seven-speed Powershift dual-clutch automatic transmission. A regular 1.0-litre EcoBoost non mild-hybrid engine is also offered which will deliver a total of 99bhp.
