Four years after the Fiesta was launched, Ford has given the supermini a facelift for the 2013 model year. It gains a new face that incorporates a prominent grille which is similar to the new Fusion’s. The headlight design has been updated and includes Daylight Running LEDs now. The taillights have been revised as well while the cabin remains more or less similar to the pre-facelift model.
“Fiesta has been one of the world’s best-loved small cars across five decades, and the sporty appeal of the last generation Fiesta inspired real passion among global compact car customers, contributing to its status as the world’s most successful small car,” said Martin Smith, Ford of Europe executive design director. “We had to keep that vital part of Fiesta’s make-up – but we also wanted to give it a more sophisticated look.”
Together with the unveiling of the 2013 Fiesta, Ford has introduced the award-winning 1.0-litre Ecoboost gasoline engine to the lineup. It will come in either 99bhp or 118bhp state of tune.
The 2013 Ford Fiesta will also be available with the 1.5-litre diesel engine with 74bhp borrowed from the B-MAX. The tarmac-burning ST version will be powered by the 1.6-litre Ecoboost engine which is capable of churning 177bhp.
With the recently launched Renault Clio, Peugeot 208 as well as the ever-popular VW Polo, the European super mini market is about to heat up even more with the new Fiesta.
