Quite some remarkable changes; the front appers less wide than the previous one. On the whole, I feel the car feels more crisp.

Why are the new versions of most cars having a "tall-boy" design?! The new Verna has quite a similar (although slightly less) too.

And they seem to stretch the Figo's headlight design on to the Fiesta as well!

But definitely a looker.

The new Fiesta is only about 1cm taller than the current Fiesta but the new Fiesta is also 4cm wider than the current Fiesta.

How come no one here discussed about the tyre size? It was disclosed a long time ago.

The tires on the new fiesta are 195/60 R15.

R15! I was actually expecting 16" on the top spec

I remember you mentioned about this earlier, but couldn't locate while glancing through the pages - Six airbags are standard on the top end, or only the 2 front ones are provided?

This is the standard tire size for the base and mid model, I do not have any info about the top spec car.

6 Airbags should be standard on the top end model but again that is not confirmed, However all 3 models should get at least 2 airbags.

Then the new fiesta will be the best VFM sedan in Indian market if they price the base version at 7L.

Mustang.101, can we safely assume that ABS will be part of the standard equipment too?! If Airbags would be offered as standard? In that case, the new Fiesta would certainly be one of the best VFM sedans around

You see a bit of it in the Linea and very little in the Vento but the hatch origins really comes through in the new Fiesta pics on zigwheels.

Ford does not seem to have managed to translate the hatch to the sedan smoothly, the angles from the back to front are huge, the car seems to be imbalanced to the back.

Yes, ABS should(would) be standard across the range.

I don't know what everyone is talking about, Each and every auto magazine has said that the boot has been seamlessly integrated and the new fiesta will be the best looking car from ford in India. Check my past posts and you will find some quoted text from a 3rd party source. Also the new fiesta looks much much better than the current one and I own a current fiesta and I am telling you this. Do not look at the South east asian fiesta pics where 14" rims are used, India is getting the 15" rims and you have to see the car in real to actually judge it.

Mustang.. That's because pictures doesn't do any justice. I have seen both hatch and sedan(seen testing in Chennai- Tambaram - Velachery Road) i would say the Sedan looks much better in flesh than the hatch.

The new fiesta is not actually a new fiesta, it is just that it will be new for India, it has been around for a while in other countries and it is actually pretty good looking car, the boot is very well integrated and by no means it gives a feeling that it has been integrated as an afterthought ala Dezire.

Hope to see all the necessary equipment with no stinginess this time if it has to compete with the verna. The real battle will be between fiesta and verna this time round. Seems like three petrol and three diesel variants will be in store.
