2009 Ford Fiesta

UK’s popular monthly magazine What Diesel Car has announced its winners this year in the annual awards ceremony. The Ford Fiesta wins What Diesel Car of the Year 2009. The winner should not be confused with the Fiesta that’s sold in India. This is a totally different car and is a hatchback. Its sedan version will be the next-generation Fiesta in India hopefully in 2010.
