Ford has revealed the new Fiesta, featuring confident new styling, an enhanced technology package and powered by sophisticated mild hybrid powertrains to make the compact hatchback more future-ready than ever.
Fresh design, more personality
A bold, distinctive exterior takes Fiesta’s expressive design to a new level, with more road presence and greater differentiation between the comprehensive line-up of Fiesta variants.
Trend, Titanium, ST-Line and Active models each benefit from unique styling elements alongside an expanded range of exterior colours, wheel designs and interior finishes.
The Trend and Titanium series feature a broad upper grille with strong horizontal strakes and a high gloss chrome surround, with distinctive side vents. Titanium also features upper grille horizontal bars finished in hot-stamped chrome, matched with chrome window surrounds.
The Ford Performance-inspired ST-Line offers a sportier character and is recognisable by its new upper grille with deeper inset and gloss black honeycomb finish.
The SUV-inspired Active variant is distinguished by more rugged design cues for an adventurous character reflecting the Active’s taller, crossover stance.
Seven new alloy wheel designs complement the bold new exterior styling, and two new exterior colours are also available – Boundless Blue and Beautiful Berry.
For the highest level of design and exclusivity, available Vignale packs for Titanium, ST-Line and Active series deliver unique design features including exclusive 17” and 18” alloy wheels, premium Sensico seat materials and matte carbon-effect interior decorative elements, depending on the variant.
Powertrains for today and tomorrow
The new Fiesta delivers refined, responsive and fuel-efficient driving experiences using a range of EcoBoost Hybrid 48-volt mild hybrid and EcoBoost petrol powertrains.
Designed to reduce running costs while boosting the fun-to-drive factor at the heart of Fiesta’s appeal, EcoBoost Hybrid models feature a belt-driven integrated starter/generator (BISG) in place of the standard alternator, enabling recovery and storage of energy usually lost during braking and coasting to charge a 48-volt lithium-ion, air-cooled battery pack.
The new Fiesta’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost Hybrid engine is available with 125 PS and 155 PS power outputs, combined with a six-speed manual transmission. WLTP fuel efficiency from 48 mpg and CO2 emissions from 111 g/km 2 represent a 5% improvement compared with a non-hybrid 125 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine.
The 125 PS EcoBoost Hybrid is also available with a seven-speed, Powershift dual-clutch automatic transmission, delivering seamless gear changes for optimised refinement and from 45.2 mpg fuel efficiency and 117 g/km CO2 WLTP.
The Powershift transmission helps keep the engine at the optimum speed for efficiency, as well as enabling rolling Auto Start-Stop below 7 mph for improved fuel efficiency in city driving.
Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is offered with 100 PS, delivering from 45.2 mpg and 118 g/km CO2 WLTP.
Fiesta’s engaging driving experiences can be tailored using selectable Normal, Sport and Eco Drive Modes technology that enables drivers to adjust throttle response, ESC, traction control, plus gearshift timings for automatic models, to match responses and performance to the driving scenarios.
Confident, comfortable, connected technologies
Latest generation technologies help ensure new Fiesta is better equipped than ever for intelligent, connected driving experiences. LED headlights are introduced to all Fiesta variants, with advanced Matrix LED technology available that offers Glare-Free High Beam functionality and can also adapt headlight beam patterns for better visibility in challenging conditions. 1
Standard LED headlights incorporate LED low-beam, high-beam and daytime running lights for superior visibility. The high-series Matrix LED headlights can also adapt their beams according to the driving scenario. 1 Manoeuvring Light and Bad-Weather Light functions 1 are triggered when the vehicle sensors detect a low-speed manoeuvring attempt or the activation of windscreen wipers, and automatically adjust the beam pattern to help the driver see more clearly.
Glare-Free High Beam uses a front-mounted camera to detect oncoming traffic and create a “glare-free spot” within the beam pattern by blocking those rays that would otherwise shine in the eyes of other road-users. The technology enables increased use of high beam to maximise night-time driving visibility while helping to reduce the risk of dazzling other drivers.
A 12.3-inch, fully-configurable TFT digital instrument cluster is introduced to new Fiesta giving drivers the ability to personalise and prioritise information displays including navigation notifications.
Further sophisticated technologies available include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Speed Sign Recognition, 1 designed to help maintain a comfortable driving distance from the vehicle ahead.
Helping drivers negotiate cities with ease, Active Park Assist 1 can detect suitably-sized parking spaces and control the steering to park hands-free nose-to-tail and side-by-side with other cars, while the driver controls acceleration and braking and gear selection.
Technologies designed to prevent or mitigate the effect of collisions with other road users include Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross Traffic Alert and Active Braking, 1 Lane-Keeping Aid 1 and Pre-Collision Assist with Active Braking. 1
Advanced connectivity features also help new Fiesta customers enjoy stress-free ownership experiences. Standard FordPass Connect modem technology 3 allows a selection of convenient features to be controlled remotely using the FordPass app. 4
New Fiesta’s connectivity also provides Live Traffic updates for the available navigation system and enables Local Hazard Information, 1 which can inform drivers of a hazardous situation on the road ahead.
The available SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system 6 allows drivers to control audio, navigation and connected smartphones using simple voice commands. The system delivers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ compatibility and is supported by an 8” central touchscreen with pinch and swipe functionality, as well as the ability to display a 180-degree image from the available rear-view camera.
Further available premium features include a wireless charging pad for smartphones and a B&O Sound System with 10-speakers to deliver selectable Surround Sound. 7
“Fiesta is a small car with real personality. It’s fun-to-drive nature and quality have always been expressed through its styling,” said Amko Leenarts, director, Design, Ford of Europe. “For our new Fiesta we have created even more distinctive characters for each of the Fiesta variants, so our customers can choose a version that reflects their own style and outlook on life.”
The new Fiesta, available to order now from £16,620 on the road, for delivery in early 2022, also introduces a 12.3-inch digital instrument display that helps drivers stay informed for relaxing journeys. Local Hazard Information 1 and Wrong-Way Alert 1 make their Fiesta debuts among a suite of sophisticated driver assistance technologies.
