Ford have revealed the all-new Ford Fiesta 2017 model line up at an exclusive event in Germany.
With the success of it’s current model, which has been one of the best selling cars in the supermini sector for the past seven years, the all-new Ford Fiesta has a lot to live up to and it sure does not’t disappoint.
Exterior changes on the eighth-generation Ford Fiesta are subtle and include a new front grille and elongated headlights that sweep back. Ford plan on making this new 2017 model more upmarket and have done this by improving the cars quality and technological offerings. On the inside, we see a new 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system as well as a panoramic roof. Overall the new Fiesta is slightly bigger than its predecessor.
From a safety perspective, new features on the 2017 model will include a new anti-collision system. This works by detecting objects in front of the car up to 130 meters away and will automatically brake to prevent a collision if the driver does not react. Other features include blind spot information, lane keeping assist and active park assist.
The 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine will be a popular choice but this time will be available with either 5 or 6-speed gearboxes. The diesel engines have been refined which will include a high power TDCi engine with improvements being made to the performance, torque and efficiency.
