“Lovable, fun and sporty to drive!”
The all-new Ford Fiesta is here, and is set to raise the stakes in the compact car segment.
Boasting new contemporary design, that Ford states is more fluid and elegant, but distinctly Fiesta, combined with its new interior and technologies, we’re excited to see how the new Fiesta fairs in a rather competitive segment!
“It’s because we share our customers’ passion for our Fiesta that we’ve been able to take this iconic small car’s lovable, fun and sporty-to-drive character to the next level,” says Tracey Delate, General Manager, Marketing at Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa.
“Globally, the Fiesta is Ford’s best-selling passenger car, and the all-new model represents a bold step forward in every area, from its attractive styling to the exceptional build quality, the superb craftsmanship evident in the new interior to the unrivalled smart features, safety and technology.
“Our multiple award-winning 1.0 EcoBoost engine remains a cornerstone of the Fiesta line-up, with a choice of new six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, along with the option of the frugal 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine,” Delate adds.
The all-new Fiesta is available at launch in two specification levels, comprising the feature-rich Trend series and the range-topping Titanium that boasts an outstanding level of standard equipment.
We haven’t driven it (yet), but we sure do love the look of it and by the sounds of things, it comes with a whole lot of tech and infotainment systems as standard!
“The Fiesta’s floating, tablet-inspired 8-inch colour touchscreen and infotainment system with built-in turn-by-turn navigation is standard on the Titanium, and can be operated with pinch and swipe gestures. The Trend model also incorporates SYNC®3, using a floating 6.5-inch colour touchscreen.
Reflecting the consumer shift towards portable digital multimedia, Fiesta delivers Bluetooth connectivity and two USB ports as standard, with an integrated CD player on all models. A high-end seven-speaker sound system is featured on the Fiesta Titanium models, with a six-speaker set-up on the Trend models.”
