Default New Fiesta?

I am planning to buy Ford Fiesta 1.4 DuraTorq Exi.
Is Ford going to release a new version of Fiesta. The showroom folks told me that a new one might be in the horizon..
So should I wait or go ahead and buy one...

Off Topic: Not too sure if you got confused between the Fiesta or the FUSION (remember the Diesel is coming and may be with minor changes!)

Chances are the Fusion/Fiesta gets upgraded. Fusion will get the Fiesta's 1.4TDCi (and get cut its length by 18mm to avail some small diesel car tax benefits) and Fiesta will get 1.6TDCi.

But when? anybody can give any further info?

A face-lifted Fiesta is supposedly on the cards too.

We had a thread on the facelifted Fiesta which was released in Brazil. Would that be the new Fiesta in India?

Mazda recently launched their all new Mazda2 which is the future platform for the new Fiesta. It will take a couple of years to hit Europe and another year to hit India methinks.

Do check-out the following thread also. Intention is not to prejudice your decision, but its better to consider all aspects given the sum of money involved.

TorroRosso, there is nothing to get worried about here. This is an isloated case, and mainly because of the dealer involved in Kolkata.

If thats the case, try searching for moanings about the Swift, and many would pop up. Does that make it a bad product? IMO, No.

Overdrive had a couple of issues back posted pics of the new Fiesta. But I doubt if it anywhere near the horizon. Dont see it getting launched any time this year.

You can see more details out here AutoCrust: New Ford Fiesta


I think this is the one you might be referring to. These are images from the Ford Brazil website where it is launched as Novo Fiesta Sedan
