The all-new Ford Fiesta that has arrived in Polokwane, takes refinement to the next level with elegant, ultra-contemporary design which incorporates flowing, sculpted lines that both enhance the car’s appearance and improve its aerodynamic efficiency.
When one sets eyes on the new Fiesta for the first time, distinctive features such as a chrome waistline, cornering lights, LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights create stunning first impressions.
Distinctive styling doesn’t stop with the exterior. Contrast stitching on seat trims, steering wheel and floormats; as well as chrome accents across the instrument panel, centre console and interior door handles all complement the unique exterior body colours.
The interior is fitted with all kinds of fancy technology features and comes in Trend and Titanium models. Car journeys need not be a disruption to your connectivity. Standard on the all-new Fiesta, Ford SYNC®3 integrates seamlessly with your compatible smartphone, letting you control everything from phone calls and text messaging to music and satellite navigation all via the touchscreen or through remarkably simple voice commands.
SYNC®3 with eight inch colour touchscreen supports multi-touch “swipe” and “pinch-to-zoom” gestures, and lets you arrange application icons and background displays just as you would on your tablet or smartphone. You can also switch between daytime and night modes, and tailor pre-sets for multiple users. This system also helps you manage your phone, music, apps, and navigation all with simple voice commands. Ford SYNC®3 can even read your text messages aloud for you.
Available in either the 1.0 turbocharged EcoBoost or the 1,5 litre diesel, the all-new Fiesta has been designed to reduce your cost of ownership through improved fuel economy and lower CO² emissions, without any compromise on style or driving quality. The 1,0 EcoBoost engine delivers a powerful 92 kW of power on the titanium manual with CO² emissions measured at 97 g/km.
When it comes to safety the all-new Fiesta Intelligent Protection System (IPS) includes driver and front-passenger airbags as well as side-impact and curtain airbags, collapsible steering column and pedals for optimised protection of driver’s legs and feet, Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), robust computer-optimised body structure with ultra-rigid safety cell and crumple zones, pre-tensioners, load-limiting retractors and height adjustable mounts on front seatbelts.
