Offcial: Ford to launch new Fiesta in coming months

Ford’s all-new, award-winning Fiesta is coming to India this year. This marks the first in a series of eight new global products that Ford plans to introduce in India by the middle of this decade.

The new Fiesta will take on the Honda City, Fiat Linea, Maruti SX4 and Volkswagen Vento. The new car is expected to be launched in both petrol and diesel heart. We can also expect an automatic transmission version.

The new Ford Fiesta will be built at Ford’s state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Chennai and the Indian consumers can look forward to a hi-end sedan that will provide sporty design, great ride, dynamic performance and array of smart technologies.

Announcing the new Fiesta’s eagerly awaited arrival, Michael Boneham, president and managing director, Ford India said, “We are delighted the new Fiesta is coming to India. It will provide Indian customers a premium sedan that reflects their personality in terms of style, technology and performance, and will add a new level of diversity and dynamism to our showrooms.”

“The new Fiesta will augment the current range of Fiesta vehicles in India, which remain an integral part of our product line-up,” Boneham added. “Our stepped-up launch plan builds on the incredible consumer response to the Ford Figo, which in 12 months has transformed our presence in India and attracted many new customers to the Ford brand.”

The new, global Fiesta, which is available in more than 100 markets throughout the world, has sold more than one million units worldwide.
