The Ford Fiesta was among the most popular vehicles in India before the automobile was discontinued in the country due to its slow sales. However, that certainly doesn’t stop the automobile manufacturer from unveiling a brand new generation of Ford Fiesta in the hatchback line-up at a special Go Further event in Colgne, Germany. Let’s take a look at what this vehicle has to offer:
The latest Ford Fiesta (2017) comes equipped with a relatively spacious interior. The vehicle comes in four different trims namely, ST-Line, Titanium, Vignale and Active wherein the ST-Line sports a stylish, alloy wheel, grille, bumpers and brilliant side-skirt designs; the range-topping model Vignale features a 19-inch alloy wheel with leather seats; the Active trim sports a soft-roader with special roof bars and a special body kit.
As far as the interior is concerned, the vehicle sports a sophisticated dashboard layout that features an 8-inch floating touchscreen that recognizes voice commands. This feature is optional. The vehicle further comes packed with the SYNC 3 infotainment system that controls audio, provides navigation and recognizes voice commands all in one place.
While it sports all its current forms, but is slightly under the 4-meter mark. The Fiesta packs a 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine that further offers either 99bhp, 123bhp or the 128bhp. On the other hand, the Fiesta 1.5-litre TDCI diesel engine variant offers either 84bhp or 119bhp, depending on the state of the tune. Buyers have the option of opting for either manual or automatic gearbox.
Additionally, the Fiesta also comes in a 1.1-litre engine variant that outputs 69bhp or 84bhp.
The Ford Fiesta is expected to be priced between Rs 6 to 9 lakh range. It will most possibly be competing with vehicles like Maruti Suzuki Baleno or the Hyundai i20 and the Volkswagen Polo if the vehicle is introduced in the Indian markets.
