We’ve been treated to the refreshed Focus not long ago and now it’s time for the smaller brother – the Fiesta – an equally best selling model for the second largest US automaker to prepare for a generational change.
Before the model’s circle of life comes to its usual completion, we have here the next generation tentatively previewed through some neat renderings from the digital artists over at OmniAuto.it. Ford will replace one of its best-selling nameplates with an all new version and this all new generation will most likely reach dealerships sometimes during the first part of next year. For now, the current Fiesta is the top selling model in the subcompact class on the Old Continent for the fourth year in a row with more than 310,000 units delivered in 2015 – which is an advancement of around two percent compared to the previous year. We can imagine the automaker will look to harness the reputation and the generational change will bring an evolutionary design – it will use the same Global B architecture and will grow by mere millimeters compared to the predecessor.
In terms of styling, we expect the renderings here to be pretty much close to reality with the current design language implemented on the Fiesta – the newest corporate radiator grille, flanked by new headlights and bumper that is a bit on the aggressive side. The model will harness traits from the bigger brother – the Focus – but will also bring its own cues as the Focus is currently in the facelift iteration. Inside the cabin we expect better materials and a better infotainment assembly – larger display and the SYNC 3 evolution of the proprietary system.
