Thanks,
I have worked on this actually, Ford will be launching the dual clutch powershift transmission but i don't think it will be there on launch day. A few more weeks after that it would be done.

Mustang.101 - Welcome back and we are glad you are here. You can count me in for the one who is very eagerly looking forward for the release of this car, especially the hatch version. I had almost given up on my hope of seeing the hatch, since almost every post before yours as well as ACI stated the hatch isnt slated for release at all. You just re-ignited my hope once again. I hope the hatch if it releases is also going to sport the 1.6 TDCI? I greatly appreciate any details you can share on this. Thank you so very much.

We definitely need these releases with ALL the goodies ASAP. At least VW seems to be cashing on this delay. I guess Q3 is the best Ford could manage. Q2 would have been ideal with announcements going out in Q1.

The would have synchronized with financial calendars of many prospective buyers.

But yes, a definite diesel contender is seriously found wanting.

Well you will be seeing the 1.6TDCi as per me but this is not confirmed news. I was involved with the petrol version more. So guaranteed i can tell you that we will be seeing the 1.6L Ti-VCT petrol engine.

Ok guys I have some news:

This is again 100% legitimate and is probably going to break a few hearts.
I was on the phone with someone and this is the official news.

It is indeed the sedan which we are getting in 2011 while the hatch has been put on hold.

Engine options are
1. 1.6L Ti-VCt Duratec Petrol (120 BHP)
2. 1.6L TDCi Duratorq Diesel

So thats all folks. No hatch coming this year as of now.

Good move indeed. Is the 1.6 diesel, the 90/95 bhp motor?
And any info on the goodies offered - leather seats, Keyless entry or start/stop button etc.? Just being curious

Thanks Mustang, that definitely makes it easier to narrow down the choice.
And we know for sure that the diesel will be the 1.6!
Will Ford continue to keep the old Fiesta top end (with airbags/ ABS) or will that be stopped?

From the specifications it looks like it might be a competitor in the next segment rather than T-Jet, ANHC, etc. in terms of pricing.

And, since we have insider info, , any launch dates...?

I was thinking of a 1.6L diesel hatch and was dreaming about, but alas, need to wait. No worthy successor to Fusion. Hope they bring something soon !

I can't specify the month but it is definitely Q3 as of now.

This news is 100% genuine and official and exclusive to team-bhp as of now.

PS - Sorry i have not been replying to your mails and msgs people but i was in the US since the last 4 odd months. Now I am back and i would be replying.
Its great to have you back Mustang. As always, a whole bunch of us will henceforth eagerly await more genuine Ford dope on T-Bhp from your end.

Had a query - Any idea if Ford is planning to offer the option of 6 or more airbags and / or ESP in any of the Fiesta variants?

Also, the latest ACI mentions May 11 as the launch period for the Fiesta - you still see that getting pushed to Q3?

One more question for Mustang----will the Fiesta sedan have a sunroof like the one released in the US this year?

And were you at Dearborn, US?

Hi Mustang! Warm welcome back. Great news that you have shared. I am just eagerly waiting for the launch. Any idea what would be the status of existing fiesta ? In the sense, all the current versions with existing features will continue or will there be any curtailing ? On the new 1.6 TCDi, any info on BHP/Torque and expected FE ?

I just hope the new Fiesta diesel maintains the straight line acceleration characteristic.

That is good news! Welcome back Mustang. Is there an 'S' version in the pipeline? I guess the hatch has been pushed back to 2012, with the Figo doing well and all the hype currently centered around the sedan launch.

I know this is something people ask for, I have seen the Fiesta with the Sunroof in China here. In fact that was the first time I saw the car with the sunroof.

I was not impressed, the sunroof is pretty small, in fact I was expecting it would open fully and I can stand and travel on it, but was not the case.

The sunroof in Chinese cars are mainly because they are all heavy smookers and want the smoke to go out. But dont think such kind of sun roof is required in Indian scenario.
