The Ford Fiesta facelift adopts a completely new front end design characterized by a chrome finished Aston Martin-esque grill. The headlamps undergo subtle redesign to accommodate the new grill. The bumper and foglamps also stand revised. The profile of the sedan remains intact while the rear gets reworked combination lamps, bumper and license plate enclosure.

The interior design remains the same but the centre console gets black treatment instead of old car’s silver. The centre display now incorporates Ford AppLink system (on top end variant) which enables voice commands for smartphone applications.
