I can't seem to make out any facelift either, Its just the masking I guess.

Or it maybe the 1.6 Diesel !!

I dont see any facelift in the Fiesta. It should be the 1.6 Diesel. But Ford must give a facelift to Fiesta ! Sounds like its launch is around the corner. Finally!

In the Third Picture, we can clearly see that the badge has been masked. So that means, New Badging, i.e. 1.6 Duratorq Diesel(hopefully) and New Tail-lamps also.

because they suddenly slowed down and took a u-turn, so could not take the front pics.

I feel if they intentionally masked the car so that people click it! I don't see any changes here!

could find no reason for the masking... it could very well be the 1.6 duratorq.

Probably the 1.6 TDCi being tested. I dont see any other design changes on the car, though.

Dear Logical thinking friends, if its just an engine difference, why would they mask the car?
We wouldn't look twice at this fiesta unless we know its got a more powerful engine.
I've watched the i10 CRDI undergo road trials and they're not masked one bit.
Unless the change is external, there is no need for masking.

What the companies should do is, that while they are making a face lift, they should not hide the label and just put CD (instead of "DC"). People would get fooled thinking its another DC model and will not take pics! Scoop saved!

Default Ford Focus Sedan caught testing in Chennai

Since all the other Focus related links were old I am posting this new thread.

Just now checked the news in which Indian Autos Blog mentioned that the Ford Focus was spotted testing in Chennai

As we are aware Ford had earlier announced that it will be launching 8 new vehicles lines for next few years. And as anticipated Focus was one of them for sure.

Link mentions that Focus is planned to be placed in the segment to be competed by Hyundai Avante and Honda's New Civic.

Here is the source link:

Without any pics, this is no scoop. Even your link does not have a focus caught testing.
