2013 Ford Fiesta Spied at Nurburgring, in Germany
The facelifted 2013 Ford Fiesta sedan has been spied while testing its prototype on the roads around the Nurburgring in Germany. The new light-sized sedan will benefit from modified front and rear styling along with interior upgrades and a new 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. With the spy images revealed by the firm, it is obvious that the model will get an Aston Martin-style multi-slat chrome grille, which is very similar to the forthcoming midsized Ford Mondeo. The inner portions of the headlights will be rounded off and also LED daytime running lights will be included. Even though most of the body parts are modified, the fog lights, bonnet, and front bumper will get a new look.
Power comes from a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which is already available in Europe in the Focus, Focus-based C-Max MPV and the Fiesta-based B-Max MPV. It is expected to generate 74kW/170Nm in the compact Fiesta, which is down 14kW, but up 19Nm on the current, naturally aspirated 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine.
According to reliable sources, the newly updated Ford Fiesta would be revealed as early as the 2012 Paris motor show in September. The vehicle will be revealed most likely in hatchback form following the spy images of that vehicle testing back in March. Stay tuned for more details.
