Both the five-door and three-door draw their inspiration from the Verve concept. Both versions that were unveiled today are powered by a 1.6L Ti-VCT gas engine. This is only one of the five engines that will be offered when the Fiesta debuts this fall.
Full specs will be released closer to its introduction and the US should get some form of the Fiesta in the fall of 2009.
Fun-loving and stylish, sensational and safe; Ford’s all-new Fiestas are guaranteed to wow the crowds. Taking much of its exterior and interior design from the striking Verve Concept, the next generation of Britain’s best-loved small car promises to shake up the supermini scene at its global premiere.
More than 12 million Fiesta models have been sold since its introduction in 1976, and the arrival of this latest Fiesta opens another chapter in the story of Ford’s most successful small car. Following the company’s ‘kinetic design’ philosophy introduced on all the latest models, the 2008 Fiesta marks a major leap forward in terms of style, craftsmanship, quality of materials and model choice.
The new five-door model will appear in Hot Magenta. The dimensions of the three-and five-door models are the same. The visual impact of the five-door is stunning because the kinetic styling has not been compromised. Three- and five- door models are equally popular with British buyers.
Full technical details and UK specifications will be released closer to the launch of the production model in autumn 2008.
