The facelift gets Ford’s new Aston Martin style hexagonal front chrome grille and retains the existing Fiesta’s taillights. The spied mule is the second time the car is being spotted, with the first one wearing the same color showcased at the Auto Expo 2014.

In terms of features, the facelift will receive Ford’s SYNC infotainment system with the AppLink feature, an Emergency Assist System (seen on the EcoSport, which dials listed emergency services in the event of an accident), automatic headlights and automatic wipers.

Engine options for the sedan are likely to remain the same – a 1.5-liter petrol and a 1.5-liter diesel – as in the existing Fiesta. While the petrol variant comes in both manual and automatic transmission, the diesel gets a manual gearbox only.

The current Fiesta hasn’t exactly sold in great numbers (averaging 119 units per month in 2013) and with new cars like the Honda City being received well, the Fiesta faces some tough competition.

    Though the new Fiesta looks good with the Aston Martin grill, the new Honda City would have a massive edge when it comes to factors such as interior space, mileage and brand value and trust, all very important buying criteria for the Indian customer. Bear in mind, the City is already selling 7000+ units per month since its release.

    Ford would struggle to make it a success
