    The Fiesta Hatch looks cool but not the Sedan!:( This will be powered by 1.6 Petrol and Diesel. Hope 1.6MJD too will be in India soon!

    New Ford Fiesta Engines Unveiled

    Ford has finally put an end to speculation and unveiled the engine options for their kinetic design wrapped – New Ford Fiesta at Bangalore.Unlike what was expected, both petrol and diesel engines for the new Fiesta have a cubic capacity of 1.5-liters.

    The new engines offered are the 1.5 lit Diesel and the 1.5 lit Petrol engine. The 1.5 lit diesel is actually the upsize of the 1.4 Duratorq engine and now features an inter-cooler. Power figures for the Diesel are 89.72bhp which is quite respectable and a healthy 20.81kgm of torque. The diesel engine reasonably powerful, but its real virtue is fuel efficiency. The engine returns a best in class 23.5kpl fuel efficiency according to the ARAI test cycle.

    The 1.5 lit petrol engine is the downsized version of the 1.6 lit petrol engine which did duty on the previous Fiesta which is now the Fiesta Classic. Power produced on the petrol engine is an impressive 108.46bhp and comes with Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT). The 1.5 petrol engines also boast best in class fuel efficiency of 17kpl.

    Both the engines are mated to the 5 speed manual gearbox and we can expect a twin clutch auto-box later some time. As a total package the Ford Fiesta has a host of new features which are new to the Indian industry like the Voice control features whose videos we have showcased earlier. New Fiesta also features Cruise control which is a great inclusion for its class. Then there are other goodies like USB\AUX, rear parking sensor, Electric Power Steering which has a pull drift compensation which helps in the stability of the car.

    With best in class fuel efficiency and a smart package new Ford Fiesta seems to have got the equation right. It will be interesting to see how the new Ford Fiesta is priced. What should be the right price of the car according to you?

    I saw around 5-6 new FIESTA with temp regn. on old airport road today, probably heading to the dealers. Colors were grey and blue. They looked more beautiful and sporty.

    keeping in mind the competitive prices ford came up with for figo, i guess it'll be around 6.5 to 8 L for petrol and 8-10 L for diesel.,and if they manage this priceband for real,it would make it a near perfect buy!!:)

    The new Fiesta has peculiarly hideous looks and seems to be a cross between a toad and a house lizard. :p

    I know i sound harsh, but thats my take on the design. No amount of features/gizmos can balance the flaws of the design.

    And being a Ford doesn't help either.

    Something is really wrong with Ford. One of the main reasons for me not considering FIGO at all when planning to buy another car was its looks. Man, if thers is any car I hate for looks, its gotta be FIGO. Even Ritz looks far better in front of a FIGO. I still remember a family drooling all over my Punto at a temple while conducting pooja, they were getting pooja done for their brand new FIGO.

    And now they comeup with this ????? Seems like a trick to increase Ford Classic sales.
