First official pictures of new Fiesta

Ford Fiesta

Ford has revealed the first details for its new Fiesta which will hit UK roads in October.

The new Fiesta’s engine range comprises of four 16-valve Duratec petrol and two Duratorq TDCi diesel engine choices. Two of these engines are new: the ECOnetic with carbon dioxide emissions below 100g/km and a new top-of-the-range 118bhp 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT.

Three other 16-valve Duratec petrol engines are offered for all-new Fiesta, in 1.25- and 1.4-litres and outputs from 58bhp to 94bhp, with an automatic transmission option available on the Duratec 1.4-litre.

A new feature squarely aimed at the Fiesta’s target audience of younger drivers is 'stall prevention' which is designed to adjust the engine’s ignition profile in low speed manoeuvres to stop the car from stalling.

Standard safety equipment includes a knee airbag for the driver and head-and-thorax side airbags. Safety curtain airbags are optional.

Keyless entry and start button ignition come as standard. Automatic headlamps, automatic window wipers and cruise control are all available as options.

Prices will be announced closer to the new Fiesta’s October launch.
