I can understand your sentiments mate! I've been there. Its killing me that I've to wait for a couple of days more to return to India and have a look at the beauty myself! I promise you that I'll post more pictures once I'm back.

For now, here's another teaser (a more practical one this time!)

Man o' man! Does she look hot or does she look hot! Phew!

Wish Ford had launched the facelift for the petrol variants too and i would have been pottering around in a red beauty like yours at this moment

As for the review, don't even bother about that for now. Just throw in a few more pics to satiate us, lol

Cheers,

Lovely car!!

If only Ford could now launch the Petrol cousin (and please oh please get the 1.6 Ti-VCT, not the sluggish 1.5), throw in the DCT and I'll line up outside the showroom tomorrow morning, pocket economics be damned.


My 'borrowed' pleasure on a recent trip state-side. It's a hoot and a half to drive:

Looks awesome in red.
I wish Ford had given a petrol engine so I could have bought it as a second car. Do they have any such plans in near future?

The smoked headlamps on the blue fiesta look beautiful! Wish they made their way here as well. Would have really beautified this already stunning car. Gosh, im so smitten..

The smoked headlamps are present in the Ambiente and Trend variants IMO and the Titanium gets all silver. Personally i'd have liked if they offered the smoked headlamps on the Titanium variant as well.

That's surprising! I wouldve expected this to be available across the range or on the top variant only . Wonder what kind of thought went into omitting this from the Titanium.

Heartiest congratulations to you, bud. Brilliant choice! I won't be surprised if, you become a celebrity figure in your neighborhood, soon enough

Cheers,

I am yet to see a single new fiesta on the road here in BLR. My daily commute is in the IT belt.

True that. I commute towards Whitefield from CV Raman nagar. Have seen the new Linea but no fiesta yet.

With fuel prices going down slightly, many city dwellers whose running is less than 15,000 km/year are looking at petrol options. I would have loved if the Fiesta was available in Petrol. The top end would have been around 8.7 Lakhs ex-showroom Mumbai and a real temptation, given the build quality and the affordable maintenance that a Ford promises. It would also open up cross-shopping options for people who are looking at hatchbacks but see the potential value of a sedan for a family.

And its not like Ford does not have good petrol engine options in their workshop, with the 1.5 L and the 1.0 Turbo available and in production.

Apart from the City and now the K14 in the Ciaz, there is not much available in terms of good petrol sedans. The Linea (though excellent an drive, handling and build, the Fiat T-jet looses on lack of focus on India operations and ASS), the Verna (with its not so great petrol, and less than inspiring overall ride, dynamics and build quality), and the Rapid (with ASS issues) do not inspire petrol buyers as much as one would hope. The Ford would have made a real complete segment competitor, given its ride, handling, looks, build, and ASS, and opened up the market.

One hopes that Ford has a good petrol option in the reckoning. It would most likely help its sales numbers too.

In spite of its launch almost 6 months ago, yet a see a new Fiesta in flesh.

Wonder what was Ford thinking at the time of launching this product and where they see themselves with positioning of the product.

Sad but true, another competent product from Ford may soon become obsolete.
