The Ford Fiesta may not boast as much of a complete redesign as its predecessor, but that's not a bad thing in the slightest. The Ford Fiesta 2014 is rather a refinement and distillation of what makes the Fiesta of any generation a great urban vehicle; it's small, well designed and a pleasure to drive.
Interior and exterior design
The biggest design departure for the Ford Fiesta 2014 is that it was the first Fiesta to include the wide-mouthed, down turned grille that would become a signature piece for the manufacturer for a time. It's an incredibly striking design and one that invokes the sense of speed and luxury that you would generally find in much more expensive and impractical cars. The Ford Fiesta 2014 came riding on 16” alloy wheels, whilst the interior and dashboard focus around button and instrument clusters that are all within easy and comfortable reach of the driver. In terms of technology, the Ford Fiesta 2014 featured increased compatibility and integration, with MyFord Touch and app syncing creating a far more high-tech experience than you may expect from a three-door family car.
Engines and performance
As well as a 1.6-litre petrol unit, the Ford Fiesta 2014 was released onto the market with the option of Ford's award-winning EcoBoost engine. A winner of the International Engine of the Year award, the EcoBoost can return an improved 65.7mpg and emits just 99g/km of CO2. This means that the green and economically friendly Ford Fiesta 2014 is exempt from car tax.
Safety and technology
The Ford Fiesta 2014 includes all of the general safety features that you would expect as standard, including headrests, a full range of airbags and ABS. On top of all that, optional features to improve the vehicle's safety were made available at purchase, and included the Active City Stop system. If the Ford Fiesta 2014's sensors detected an imminent accident, the brakes would be applied automatically to avoid or lessen the impact.
