2013 Ford Fiesta will be officially presented at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. A completely new face, a slightly revised interior and plenty of technology: this is what the new Fiesta suggests.
Ford launches at the 2012 Paris Motor Show the facelift for the current Fiesta. The sub-compact car, a real bestseller of the segment, comes with a new face, meant to inspire a fresh attitude and to be appealing to the young audiences: a new design philosophy, collision avoidance system at low speeds and SYNC, and last but not least, a new engine – 1.0 Ecoboost.

2013 Ford Fiesta – Design / Technology / Engine
The 2013 Ford Fiesta adopts a new front grille that we just saw on the new Fusion, Mondeo’s counterpart in the U.S., and the new C-Max Hybrid. This detail leads us to believe that we face a new design philosophy for the European market.
Front optical blocks were also elongated, but with a little more discreet look. As expected, the lights will receive LEDs. Finally, the facelift brings to the exterior, a reshaped bonnet and a new rim design.
For the interior, Ford wanted to improve ergonomics. The American car manufacturer has repositioned the electric windows and mirrors controls on the driver’s door for ease of access. Furthermore, the wheel design, dashboard color instrument and the automatic climate were also modified. Materials will also be superior in terms of quality.
From the desire to match the current trend, which involves providing active safety systems even on the small class models, the 2013 Ford Fiesta comes with Active City Stop, responsible for avoiding collisions at low speeds.
At the same time, the facelift brings the SYNC interconnection system, already famous on the U.S. Ford models. This allows voice dialing numbers directly from the phonebook or the favorite songs selection. Bluetooth and USB connections aren’t missing either. SYNC also includes Emergency Assistance function, which involves dialing an emergency number in case of accident.
Finally, with the 2013 Ford Fiesta debuts on the European market the MyKey parental control system. This allows parents to limit their children’s behavior at the wheel, taking care of elements such as wearing seat belts or maintain normal levels for the audio system.
Regarding the engines, there aren’t any dramatic changes, the only novelty being the 1.0 Ecoboost engine, already awarded with the “International Engine of the Year 2012” title, expected to deliver record consumption and emissions.
