Published on January 24, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
Spy shots from the facelifted Ford Fiesta hatchback. The facelifted Ford Fiesta will be launched on the Chinese car market in March. The facelifted Fiesta sedan debuted on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November but we hadn’t seen the hatchback yet. The Ford Fiesta is made in China by the Chang’an-Ford joint venture.
Price will range from 80.000 yuan to 120.000 yuan. Engines: 1.3 and 1.5. The 1.5 will be mated to a 6-speed tiptronic automatic. Transmission for the 1.3 is not sure yet, it could either be the old 4-speed automatic or a new 6-speed automatic. The new 3-cylinder 1.0 Ecoboost engine will be available in the future as well, but only when production of that engine in China has started, which will be around July
Very funky here, shiny red and lots of chrome. Chinese car buyers will appreciate.
