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 TitaniumFiesta 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.
