Ford has took the wraps of the new and updated version of its ultra-successful Fiesta model which will go on sale next year as a 2011 model. It will come in four-door and five-door variants featuring a few styling tweaks, considering that there are some slight changes between American and European models, and updated drivetrain targeting 40 MPG.

Ford Fiesta has a recipe that works, and works greatly actually! They have already sold more than half a million units of this car in Europe and Asia. It actually was one of the main reasons why FoMoCo is not affected severely by the economic downturn! So Ford rightfully didn’t mess the a good thing and just updated it to keep it fresh for the new year.

Under the hood of new Fiesta you will find a 1.6-liter DOHC I-4 engine developing 119 hp and 109 ft.-lbs. of torque, and equipped with some of the latest technologies to become as efficient as possible. It features Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT), a standard five-speed manual transaxle with gear ratios selected to offer spirited off-the-line performance, and new front end accessory drive (FEAD) belt with stretchy dynamics to improve the engine’s thermal dynamics. The elasticity in this new drive belt eliminates the need for a belt tensioner and contributes to overall fuel economy.

Therefore hitting 40 MPG, which makes the car best in class, is not out of reach!

Ford Fiesta safety is enhanced by an array of features including dual-stage first-row air bags, a class-exclusive driver’s knee air bag, side air bags and side curtain air bags. AdvanceTrac® with ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is standard on Ford Fiesta, along with seat belt pretensioners, rear door child safety locks and a Safety Canopy® system.

Some of the new equipments that will come standard with the American Fiesta include Ford SYNC®, integrating a driver’s mobile phone with Fiesta’s onboard, voice- activated communications and entertainment system, keyless entry and push button start, a feature unique within the segment. Drivers of all sizes can adjust the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel to suit their individual preferences. Reflecting Ford Fiesta’s versatility and adaptability, and adjustable cup holders optimized ti accommodate super-sized American drinks!
