2013 Ford Fiesta

Since its introduction back in 1976, the Ford Fiesta has established itself as a motoring icon and the new 2013 model has all the ingredients to continue this legacy. With a new face-lift and improved safety and economy features, the 2013 Fiesta looks set to remain as Britain’s best-selling hatchback.

The new Fiesta’s striking front grille and aggressive bumpers are the most recognisable changes to the previous model. The eye-catching Aston Martin themed grille follows Fords new corporate face design, which can also be seen on the new B-Max and C-Max models. Numerous colour schemes are also being introduced for 2013, including coloured LED mood lighting and matching interior fabrics.

Every new Fiesta comes equipped with the latest MyKey technology, which allows parents to individually program a ‘teenage-safe’ key for their children. This allows parents to specify safer maximum speeds and have greater control over the performance of the car. Also new for 2013 is a Microsoft developed voice recognition system called SYNC.

Moving outside the car, technological improvements have been made to the Fiesta’s light clusters. The front headlights in particular now have daytime LED running lights, which look stunning and instantly draw the attention of oncoming traffic.

Under the bonnet the same engine range remains for 2013. However Ford have replaced the juicy 1.6 petrol model with an extremely efficient and intelligent 1.0-litre Ecoboost petrol engine. In comparison a 1.5-litre diesel engine is also set to replace the existing 1.4 diesel model. Despite these changes the superb driving experience still remains, whilst save in the knowledge you are reducing your impact on the environment.

In essence Ford has managed to improve an already fantastic car, by introducing some fresh new design features and some cutting edge technology. It is for these reasons that the Ford Fiesta still remains the benchmark for driving dynamics within the supermini class and a true icon on our roads.
