American car brand Ford, is about to unveil one of its hottest hatchbacks and the sibling to the Focus, the 2017 Ford Fiesta. However, the American market may not be so fortunate since it is rumored that the Fiesta will only be sold in Europe, South America and in Asia. The reason being that small car are not a big hit in North America and does not show any promise of a good sell.
What's New With The New Ford Fiesta?
According to Jim Farley, Ford Europe Chief, "The new Fiesta will be our best expression of Ford, lovable, sporty and fun to drive with an unmatched personality true to the spirit of the iconic small car that has delighted generations of customers for the past four decades. The 2016 Ford Fiesta is the best-selling car in the United Kingdom currently. It is expected to build on more success with its 2017 model with a more premium feel.
Dimension wise, the New Fiesta will not veer off too much from its current model and will likely be the same size on the outside, but will have a roomier interior. The next generation will still have the trademark grille at the front but with a lower nose similar to that of a Focus. New horizontal taillights will also be added o give a wider look. The interior will feature a more premium feel with new materials and the latest SYNC 3 touch screen system will most likely be offered as an option. The latest safety systems such as lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring will also be added.
The A4 Sized Turbo Engine Is Still Expected With The New Version
Although still unofficial, the 2017 Ford Fiesta will still give options to have either its three cylinder or four cylinder engines. The smaller 1.0 Turbo EcoBoost engine will still be offered due to its popularity in both economy and performance. A Fiesta ST version is expected to be announced soon. The new Ford Fiesta will be announced in Cologne, Germany on November 29 at the Go Further event.
