The US automaker knows its supermini is probably its biggest asset in Europe, which is why the next generation got the official reveal in Cologne, Germany and comes to the party with four distinct versions – Titanium, Active, Vignale and ST Line.
The Vignale – as we already know from the Mondeo, Kuga, Edge and others – will be the flagship trim, followed by the Titanium which is the elegance contender. Meanwhile, the ST Line comes to add a touch a sportiness to begin with and the all-new Active is featuring some of the crossover cues people like today so much. There isn’t a lot of information to be shared about the new Fiesta, the popular hatchback being just a part of the event entitled “Go Further”. What we can see is the evolutionary design – as well as the distinction between the various models in the lineup. Both the three door and the five-door look a tad larger than before but Ford hasn’t revealed the exact dimensions – though a surge is almost certain because of the Ka+.
In the gallery we also noticed a huge moonroof that covers both rows of seats, while the Active might get a little more ride height to tackle the urban jungle. Inside the new model has apparently jumped more than a generation, with modern styling and high-end materials. The infotainment system did jump a generation, because the Fiesta is now running the SYNC3 and for the first time in a Ford there’s also the option of an upscale B&O Play stereo. The range of powertrains hasn’t been revealed yet, but we can bet on the range of frugal three and four cylinder gasoline and diesel motors to be at the forefront.
