In less than two weeks from today, on November 29, Ford will pull the covers on the new generation Fiesta.
Ford Motor Company’s president and chief executive officer Mark Fields, and Ford of Europe executive vice president and president Jim Farley, will showcase the new model in front of the press and dealers at the company’s Cologne Niehl manufacturing facility in Germany.
“The new Fiesta will be our best expression of Ford – lovable, fun, sporty to drive, and with an unmatched personality true to the spirit of the iconic small car that has delighted generations of customers for the past 40 year“, Farley said.
Ford’s challenger to the Renault Clio, Opel/Vauxhall Corsa and Volkswagen Polo in Europe, and the Chevy Spark, Kia Rio and Nissan Versa Note in North America, will grow in size and feature the company’s latest design language along with new driver assist systems and other technologies.
Power is expected to come from an assortment of 3- and 4-cylinder EcoBoost engines, along with a new 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel – likely outside North America. The ST will live on with the new generation packing more oomph under the hood, with some saying that up to 220 HP will be sent to the front wheels.
During the event in Cologne, Ford will also announce details on their Smart Mobility strategy, fuel-saving technology and reveal new commercial vehicles, so you might want to set your alarm for November 29, at 20:00 CET (2 pm EST).
