1.0 L Ecoboost is rated @ 120HP ?
1.5L Diesel is again 90 HP ? Can they not bump it to 110 HP
1.0L EcoBoost is @ 123 HP/170 Nm.
1.5L diesel @ 89 HP/204 Nm.
1.5L petrol @ 108 HP (same as before).

Hello TBPians,

I had nearly made up my mind to go in for the Linea T Jet. I am inclined towards European/ American brands rather than the Asian ones, despite the penalty of lower FE, as I foresee a rather limited usage. I am nearing the last of my youthful years, and was initially more comfortable with the sedate styling of the Linea than the curvaceous Fiesta.

The recent threads on the upcoming Fiesta facelift have had be rethinking. How does this compare with my original choice? Though I am impressed by the Linea's T Jet engine (I took a TD), the DSG Transmission on the Fiesta Auto has attracted me. I am willing to trade the adrenaline rush of the T Jet for the convenience of the A/T. The marginally better ASS of Ford is also a plus point.

Also, is the new Fiesta likely to get the 1.0 EcoBoost engine? I have not come across this input anywhere else other than this thread.

I invite comments and advice from fellow TBHPians.

As per the current news the 1.0 ecoboost won't power the ford fiesta DCT . The engine options shall remain the same. Also please do take a test drive of fiesta DCT and vento dsg back to back because according my experience the fiesta's dsg is not as smooth or refiend as volkswagen dsg. Vento is a much better performer and its dsg has tiptronic option as well , fiesta has no manual override. But and thats a big BUT fiesta offers 10 years transmission warranty where as vw ofeers only 2 years standard warranty.

I own a t-jet and can assure that is more fun to drive than fiesta , primarily because of t-jet engine and its more comfortable with softer ride quality and more space but yes ford has slightly better service and auto box is more convenient in traffic.

When is the face lifted fiesta going to be launched? The car was supposed to be launched last year given that it has been in euro markets since 2012.

Why do Ford guys have this B.S habit of Increasing the anticipation to the point of frustration and then ruining everything at launch ( Ford fuesta) or few months after it ( ecosport)

Some how I feel that they are going to drop their best variant ie power shift DCT

And by the time the car will be launched we will have a snippet or scoop from car magazines that a new one is going to be launched next year just like they have been saying for all new endeavour/everest from past three years

I wonder whether Ford is capable of handling another launch period rush for their cars.
I think the car looks brilliant from the front (thanks to the Aston Martin grill) and just wrong at the back(thanks to the last gen boot).

The new Fiesta launch will happen in May/June. As per the reports from reliable sources, the allocation per dealer will be very very less initially, thanks to the ecosport backlogs. So if we have an attractive pricing, expect another situation like ecosport but much worse.

Checked a top Ford dealer in Mumbai. He does not have any expectations from the new Fiesta. Complains he hears from prospective customers is catastrophic cabin feel. It does not feel big inside. The high bulky rear is alsoa turnoff for many. Also the dash while similar to ecosport does not gel well in the sedan category. He feels unless the price works out to be substantially cheaper than the Vento/Rapid/City diesel (hinted at a lakh+ which is unlikely), he sees no future ahead for this car. The petrol 1.5 is and will remain a dud. The 1.0 ecoboost ecosport is barely delivered to them, so Ford may not rush it in the Fiesta. However if they somehow manage, he sees some ray of hope, otherwise he is least exited and totally disappointed himself.

Does someone know anyone at Ford? Can anyone get them to launch this car ASAP? If I am not wrong, Ford Fiesta is the only car that got unveiled at the Auto Expo this year and has still not hit the market. Every other car is already on sale.

Are you serious? How you wish it happened that way, asking a car company to launch a car ASAP

And yes, you are wrong about all cars unveiled at the Auto Expo being on sale now. Please be realistic.

The Candy Red shade seems to be the upcoming fad. The Fiesta, the Figo sedan as well as the updated Polo reported by autocar.com is wearing this colour. IMO it looks classy and enhances the visual appeal of any car in this shade. Finally colour options are pouring in from various manufacturers apart from the mundane whites and silvers.

where everyone is launching a hatch and then coming up with a similar sedan, i hope ford does a u turn and also launch the fiesta hatch sometime later. would be fantastic.

Ford has launched the website for the new fiesta. Hopefully the launch should also be soon i guess.
