    Fiesta is one among the top 10 best selling cars in the world and also happens to be the best driver’s car in the supermini class. It certainly deserves to sell more in India.

    They would have changed the tail light design too! front looks like the new Figo Concept KA that they showcased, so the future fords will have the same face for a car which cost 4 – 5 lakhs and the car that cost 10+ lakhs, this is the same mistake VW did…..with polo,vento, jetta, passat same face. guess ford is going the same path!

    Don’t understand why the current generation fiesta turned out to be soo dud in India though it did fine overseas. Secondly when this facelift was lauched over a year ago in Uk why is it taking too long in India. Anyway, hope the facelift helps fiesta gain some momentum.

      People in India who are spending 10 lakh for a car demands decent space. And curr gen fiesta is not spacious at all. It does not even have the space of i20.

      Fiesta can only accommodate 4 people. Even the older fiesta has better width and space at back seat. When I was looking for new car I checked the Fiesta found it too cramped at backseat, then checked older fiesta (Classic) found it lot specious. So went for Fiesta Classic (Older) over new one.
