Default Fiesta in a new color

I spotted this test fiesta in a new shade which i have not seen in the showrooms so far. Bluish silver or a shade of blue, like available in the honda city models.



It took few seconds for my phone to open the camera application, otherwise i could have got a closer snap.

The FORD website always seems to be outdated in terms of the information provided. God only knows when they update it.

Take a look at the videos, and you would see that the Ikon is still marketed as the NXT !!

I am not sure whether this color is available or not but can say one thing that Ford's website is not authentic source of information. They don't update it very often. For example, Fiesta 1.4 TDCi EXi and SXi versions haven't listed there till date!

No the colour is probably not out yet...see the red plates....most likely the car is out on tests.

@ Landcruiser

Went to the Cauvery Ford outlet over the weekend, and test drove the 1.6 petrol Fiesta (was actually offered the test drive without me asking).

Did some asking regarding the colors available, and was informed that the color we are talkin about on this thread is not currently available, rather is not even offered on the Fiesta yet. My guess is, it MAY be a 2007 offering.
