Expected to debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
Ford is developing the seventh generation 2017 Ford Fiesta in Europe to replace the current, sixth generation Ford Fiesta that has been around since 2008. In the latest, the 3-door version of the 2017 Ford Fiesta has been spied testing by IAB reader Rajeev Raj in Cambridge, UK.
The new spyshots reveal that the next-gen Ford Fiesta hatchback will be available in 3-door version as well. The spyshots reveal that unlike the current Fiesta, which has vertical taillamps, the next-gen Fiesta will have horizontal taillamps.
The next-gen Ford Fiesta is said to bigger than the current model which measures 3,969 mm in length, 1,709 mm in width and 1,468 mm in height. However, the redesigned model will also be underpinned by the B-platform that forms basis for the current model. Along with 3- and 5-door hatchback, the 2017 Ford Fiesta is expected to be offered in sedan and estate body styles reportedly. A luxurious Vignale variant could also be introduced at some point.
The 2017 Ford Fiesta is expected to be offered exclusively with EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine(s) in Europe. This will help distancing the Fiesta from the Ka+ which is offered only with a naturally aspirated engine.
