2014 Ford Fiesta to launch in June with diesel engine only
Showcased at 2014 Auto Expo earlier this year, 2014 Ford Fiesta facelift will be launched in India next month. Before the launch, the brochure of Fiesta facelift has leaked which reveals that it will be only offered with 1.5 l TDCi diesel engine generating 91 PS (67kW) @ 3750 rpm and 204 Nm torque @ 2000-2750 rpm.
2014 Ford Fiesta sedan will launch in three trim levels – Ambiente, Trend and Titanium. Major design changes will be seen on its front fascia with slimmer headlights and revised front bumper while rear end changes will receive wider tail lights, reflectors on bumper and chrome strips.
Interiors will sport a brand new center console design with black finish as against a silver finish on its earlier counterpart while Ford’s AppLink system will permit voice activated commands for smartphone applications. This will allow drivers to play their favorite music control mobile applications and make phone calls. Emergency dials for immediate services in the event of an accident along with driver knee airbags will be added safety features while ice blue lighting on switches, displays and dials gives interiors of 2014 Ford Fiesta a distinctive appeal.
The variant will be offered only with 5 speed manual transmission. Ford is expected to introduce petrol powered variants at a later stage, probably by Diwali 2014. Petrol engine options for Ford Fiesta facelift could include 1.0l EcoBoost or a 1.5l Ti-VCT generating 125 PS and 112 PS respectively.
Ford is offering heavy discounts on all vehicles in its segment. No pricing on the 2014 Fiesta have been announced as on date.
