China witnesses Ford Fiesta facelift first

To tell you the truth, the American automaker Ford actually planned to market the Ford Fiesta facelift in December last year. However, as it turned out, it was but too much an ambition as the model actually made its debut one month after in the hometown of panda, China.

Built by Ford in collaboration with the Chinese Chang’an company, this model features a 1.5-litre inline four-cylinder engine. Mated to either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission, this engine can spit out 110bhp. Unfortunately, though, compared to the rivals in its class, this engine somehow seems rather out of date. But don't worry, as the American automaker is planning to launch the model with a new base trim featuring the more updated 1.3-litre petrol engine.

Also, if you're a huge fan of the Fiesta, chances are you know that the ST trim is the hottest option of all. Well, again, if you live in China, you'll be happy with the fact that Ford is planning to launch the Ford Fiesta ST facelift in the upcoming May in your country. As with the already launched facelifted model, Ford will also develop the ST in collaboration with Chang’an. The ST trim will carry a 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine with a total power output of 180bhp.
