New Ford Fiesta comes with a new trapezoidal front grille as a part of Ford global initiative that adds striking visual appeal. Front bumper obviously is redesigned. Rear fascia gets wider looking tail lamps and tweaked rear bumper that accommodates chrome strip and reflectors.
Interior remains mostly the same as older Fiesta, but with piano black motif on centre console, instead of silver-esque panel. Centre console layout which is akin to EcoSport’s is retained, and so are the steering wheel, gear knob and air-con controls. Upholstery gets a refresh in terms of fabric and design.
Centre infotainment display in Ford Fiesta facelift will feature Ford SYNC along with AppLink, that provides voice control function to operate smartphones. Emergency assist system that calls emergency services when the car is subjected to an accident will be provided in 2015 Ford Fiesta. As a safety addition, driver knee airbag will be provided along with dual front airbags.
Engine options are expected to remain the same; a 1.5 liter petrol and 1.5 liter diesel engines generating 112PS and 91PS respectively. But in all possibility, Ecoboost 1.0 litre engine that produces 125PS could be plopped in the new Ford Fiesta. Lets see if new Fiesta changes the unfortunate fate of Ford in India, when it is launched.
