Upgraded for 2013 with a host of fresh features, the new Ford Fiesta is a bold and more confident take on the supermini. It was officially launched in the UK on the very first day of the year, and is now on sale at SMC Ford. The Fiesta’s a consistent award winner and the popular choice for UK drivers – contact us today to experience this best-seller for yourself.
The design of the car is unmistakeably Ford, from the elongated cat’s eye-shaped headlights to the air deflectors on the rear wheel arches. It sports a brand new grille and bonnet, as well as LED daytime running lights. Keyless Entry is one of the handiest additions to the model: as long as your keys are in your bag or pocket, the Fiesta will sense them and automatically unlock itself.
A functional and forward-thinking ‘smartphone’ concept has been used as the inspiration for the new Fiesta’s cabin design. The optional Ford SYNC system lets drivers stream their favourite music from their own phone via Bluetooth, and to ask for specific tracks through voice controls – which also be used to make hands-free calls. Maintaining its five-star NCAP safety rating, the Fiesta is kitted out with surrounding airbags, braking assistances and a rigid steel safety cage. The rear view camera is a 2013 addition to the car, adding to its nifty turning circle and manoeuvrability.
A typically varied selection of petrol and diesel engines from Ford ensures that Fiesta drivers can choose the power and fuel type they’d prefer. New additions to the range include a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre petrol version with 79bhp. One-touch start in the cabin fires up any engine instantly. The Easy Fuel system is still a standard feature, preventing drivers from accidentally putting the wrong kind of fuel into their Fiesta. Ford has also subtly tweaked their Ecoboost technology engines to offer turbocharged power without the high fuel consumption – and with some versions producing only 99g/km of CO2, it can also beat the London Congestion Charge.
