Ford’s popular Fiesta Van has received the same refresh treatment as the supermini on which it’s based, with sharper styling and a boost in technology the main changes made.
The new Fiesta Van is one of the first models from Ford to feature the company’s FordPass Connect on-board connectivity systems. It turns the Fiesta Van into a moving Wi-Fi hotspot with connectivity for up to 10 devices, allowing businesses to stay connected in the field.
The FordPass Connect set-up also boosts live traffic information through the Sync 3 navigation system, and provides vehicle diagnostics, remote locking/unlocking, fuel level check, and vehicle locator assists.
Driver assistance features such as a new Parking Pack, and glare-free high beam are included, alongside LED headlights fitted as standard, and Matrix LED headlights available as an option. Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and pre-collision assist with active braking round out the safety kit fitted.
A revised front end is the main change made to the styling, featuring a larger and more angular front grille, with Ford’s badge now located within the grille rather than on the leading edge of the bonnet. Sport models will feature more aggressive styling, front and rear, with 18-inch alloys available.
Powered by a choice of either EcoBoost petrol engines or EcoBoost Hybrid 48-volt mild hybrid units, the Fiesta Van returns figures as good as 56.4mpg, with CO2 emissions from 113g/km.
Gross payload is up to 531kg, and Ford has achieved a 0.93m3 load area, with maximum load length of 1,283mm. The load space is fitted with tie-down points, a full-height bulkhead, and lined, flat load floor.
Leasing orders for the new Ford Fiesta Van can be placed this autumn.
