2017 Ford Fiesta (Next-Gen) Range Unveiled – 4 New Models
Fiesta range goes for a dynamic expansion, with multiple model, sophisticated technologies and features, and efficient engines.
Ford has revealed the new, seventh-generation Fiesta supermini hatchback that is expected to go on sale in select global markets by first half of 2017. The company claims that the new car is the “most technologically advanced small car” in the segment. The ‘Fiesta’ sub-brand is to get a major boost, thanks to the new compact crossover iteration of the car called as ‘Fiesta Active’.
The 2017 Fiesta range will include four models – Fiesta Titanium, Fiesta ST-Line (performance-oriented), Fiesta Active (crossover), and the up-scaled flag ship Fiesta Vignale. The overall design theme of the new Fiesta is mild and more delicate, an evolutionary character akin to other premium models in the Ford’s stable. The sharp edgy design of the previous generation has now become a bit bulbous and smooth, while the car seems to have grown up in dimensions. The sleeker headlamps and wide-open grille are hard to miss, while the side and rear profile are more refined than before.
The interior of the new car present great improvements and value-additions, with high-quality materials and better styling. Cabin space and comfy-levels are sure to have improved, while the in-car tech and connectivity features are class-topping. This includes the company’s latest SYNC3 infotainment system along with an 8-inch touchscreen and a high-spec B&O Play stereo.
An advanced driver assistance tech package in the new Fiesta includes two cameras, three radars and 12 ultrasonic sensors for total 360 degree monitoring. Other safety techs include Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Information System, and Forward Collision Warning.
The 2017 Fiesta’s engine line-up consists of 3 units – 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol, 1.1-litre petrol, and a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel unit – all updated to Euro 6 efficiency norms. By 2018, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine will get an innovative cylinder deactivation technology – first time on a 3-cylinder engine.
