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.

The Fiesta facelift comes only with a diesel engine. The existing 1.5-litre unit generating 90 PS and 204 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, would be retained.

To be available in three variants namely Ambiente, Trend and Titanium, the C-Segment sedan will offer ABS, EBD, driver side airbag, electrically adjustable ORVMs, driver seat height adjuster and remote locking as standard features.

The mid-level Trend adds cruise control, automatic climate control, alloy wheels, audio system and Ford SYNC while the high end Titanium is bestowed with automatic headlamps and wipers, keyless entry with start/stop button, AppLink with Emergency Assist, electrically folding ORVMs and reverse parking sensors.
