2014 Ford Fiesta sedan at 2014 Delhi Auto Expo
American auto majors, Ford, have unveiled their new Fiesta sedan at the ongoing Delhi Auto Expo 2014. The India bound Fiesta is based on the European Fiesta in a brand new design and striking styling updates.
2014 Ford Fiesta sedan is seen with an inverted trapezoidal grille and has been designed by the same team that created the highly successful Ford EcoSport SUV. Fiesta from Ford comes in with a sleek exterior design and sports new front bumper, fog lamps, restyled headlamps and a new bonnet design. At the rear end are large tail lamps, also in a new design.
The same engine configurations as seen in its earlier counterpart continue on board the just unveiled Ford Fiesta. These include 1.5 liter petrol and 1.5 liter diesel engines. The petrol engine is capable of 107 bhp peak power and 140 Nm torque while the diesel engine offers 89 bhp peak power and 204 Nm peak torque. The former is mated to a 5 speed manual transmission or 6 speed automatic while the diesel engine is mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox only. Ford might also offer the 1.0 EcoBoost engine on the new Fiesta, noted for its outstanding performance on board the EcoSport SUV mated to a 5 speed manual transmission.
No details of the Ford Fiesta interiors were revealed but the company expects to price the new Fiesta competitively due to which, when launched in India later this year, will compete aggressively with Honda City, Nissan Sunny, Volkswagen Vento, Hyundai Verna and others in the segment.
