Video - How do you like the Ford Fiesta facelift?
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
Ford has unveiled the Fiesta facelift ahead of the 2012 Paris Motor Show and there's no debate on whether or not this model eventually launches in the Indian market.

Ford India will follow its own product lifecycles and considering the Fiesta is a 2011 launch, expecting it here in 2013 is unrealistic. However Ford can use the 2014 Auto Expo to relaunch the vehicle. The Fiesta's sales performance has been pretty shoddy compared to the other new entrants in that segment. Can the facelift perform the rescue act for them?
The car has a redesigned nose that has two grilles which jointly form a hexagon. Minor cosmetic revisions can be found on the car's tail light cluster and to the center console in the cabin.
Ford will fit the 2013 Fiesta with the 1L Ecoboost engine and the other important addition from the technology standpoint is the Active City Stop system, that helps prevent low-speed collisions.
The Fiesta has been around since the 1970's and over 35 million copies have been sold worldwide. Ford will provide all the details on the latest update during the Paris Motor Show premiere, so stick around to learn more about the 2013 Fiesta.
