I saw a new maroon fiesta near the yard of MPL ford in medavakkam,chennai. There is not much change externally, apart from the front bumper, and a casual looker might not notice the change.

I dont like the new positioning of the fog lamps in the front bumper. The existing one looke much better. So it looks like dealers are already getting stocks and delivery may happen very soon after launch.

Default Is this the inspiration for the 08 Ford Fiesta front end design?

Saw these Ford car pics in Brussels. The 08 Fiesta seems to have similar front end. Is this the new face of Ford?

Hi Guys,

Just came back from MPL Ford Chennai, The car is on display there both the SXI & the 1.6 S. The car sure looks great. The 1.6 S is sure going to be an eye catcher. There is not much change on the side and rear profile of the vehicle. The front looks really good with the Black bar. One thing which i liked a lot about the 1.6 S is the sound of the engine, the roar is very good, Simply love it. The sales person also told me that the FE of the vehicle is also improved

The Bad news is that the 1.6S already has a waiting period of 1 Month. They told they could deliver the vehicle on august 1st week max. But i'm not sure if this was only for me.


Manged to get some pictures there..










There are no updates on the prices till now, they have told they will inform me the prices late today evening.

Sorry if I was a bit unclear.I already have fiesta with 6DC changer,just wanted to know whether the changer can be replaced with the mp3 player.
BTW the 1.6S looks amazing with those 15 inchers.

I meant to say that whether the 6DC changer in older fiesta can be replaced with mp3 player or not?

Is there any change in engine specifications of 1.6Sxi or 1.6S ? I though there are just cosmetic changes between the two of them except for the tires. Am I missing anything?

The sound is diffrent in the 1.6S Due to it's exhaust. Or it could be because it was in indoors. I will have a test drive soon, and will tell more details.

The price of the sxi has increased by 20,000. Would this include the hiked excise duty?

If that is the case then ford has done well by not increasing the prices too much. Also the S version is only 5,000 more than the sxi. I think that's brilliant pricing for the package.

And the car looks great!
