The news that Ford is planning to launch the 2019 Ford Fiesta certainly sent us into a tizzy but it seems that the American market will have to wait a while until we get this car out on the roads. But that did not stop us for we went about collating all the information that we could collate on this model and prepped up this review with the same. What we can confirm is that the Fiesta which will be in its third generation certainly looks as good as it ever did but even better with more than the few tweaks and changes added to the mix. So let’s take a closer look at this car, shall we?
2019 Ford Fiesta Overview:
The 2019 Ford Fiesta is expected to roll out around this time next year but it seems that the European markets will get a taste of this car a lot earlier than us. While we can make out the fact that this third generation hatchback has indeed undergone a makeover of sorts, most of the specs and details have been kept tightly under wraps. So we did some digging around and what we found, pleased us all the more and hope that this model gets launched real soon.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Ford Fiesta comes with a revamped front fascia which gives the little hatchback a bolder, aggressive look. It also comes with a mesh grille with chrome accents, restyled LED headlights along with chrome accents for some of the higher trims. The design is more aerodynamic than before with better flowing lines along with larger air intakes which should help boost the performance of this car.
It also comes with enhanced suspension along with a slightly larger wheelbase which makes this hatchback look slightly muscular. The car also comes equipped with front wheel drive and 5-speed manual transmissions. One of the rumors doing the rounds is that Ford decided to downsize is three cylinders to the two cylinder version and it seems that rumor is spot on.
From reading all the interviews and what we could make out, it seems that Ford took that move to boost its performance and it seems to be doing the trick, after checking out some of the other interviews and test results. For what it’s worth, the new model certainly looks in a class of its own.
The 2019 Ford Fiesta comes with a revamped interior; the new model comes with plush leather seats for the advanced trims along with leather upholstery as well. It comes with power steering which was expected along with heated, multi-position adjustable driver’s seat. One of the often mentioned criticisms against this model is that it was a tad uncomfortable on the interior but that thankfully no longer seems to be the case with the new model.
We fully expect, this model to be as comfortable as some of the other hatchbacks doing the rounds. This car also features a touchscreen infotainment panel along with all the works, and advanced safety features which also includes driver assist, and emergency braking system.
Engine Detail, launch date, Price:
The 2019 Ford Fiesta is expected to be launched later this year but we would have to wait a bit until we get it here in the US. This car certainly seems to be fast, as it comes with enhanced suspension as well as Regular Unleaded I-4, 1.6 L engine which performs admirably well. This compact certainly looks good and for what its worth, we can hardly wait until it gets released soon. The price is expected to range from $16,175 to $22,160.
