Fiesta facelift 1 at Official: 2013 Ford Fiesta Facelift

Ford released the first pictures of the new Fiesta, and it’s getting the same sort of looks as the new Fusion/Mondeo, which appears to be inspired by Aston Martin design. The ultra-popular sub-compact also gets a couple of new technology features including Ford SYNC voice-activated connectivity and the 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine.

Design-wise, the new Fiesta has got this fancy front-end which is elegant, but not as cute as the current model. The car gets a trapezoidal front grille, bracketed by laser-cut headlamps with daytime running lamps that use LED technology, and features a power-dome bonnet design. The rear-end design has not changed in the new model.

It is in terms of technology that the new Fiesta really shines. This little car comes with Ford’s MyKey system. In the Mustang this special key enables a high performance mode. In the Fiesta it allows parents to limit their teenager’s exposure to risk at the wheel by limiting the top speed and audio volume! That is not cool. I mean it even  mutes audio until seat belts are fastened. Come on.

Th Fiesta also gets Ford SYNC in-car connectivity system with features like voice-activate phone calls and music selection from devices connected via Bluetooth or USB. The SYNC system includes Emergency Assistance, which directly connects the vehicle occupants to local emergency services operators after an accident, in the correct language for the region.

Active City Stop is also offered, not that you really need it with a three-cylinder 1.0 liter EcoBoost under the bonnet.
