Ford Fiesta [w/Gallery]Thu, 06 Sep 2012 00:00:00 -0700
The facelifted Ford Fiesta features design cues that bring it in line with the latest Ford global design language and concept vehicles.
The biggest changes are to the front of the Fiesta, where its trapezoidal grille has moved further up the front mask and is flanked by new headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, as well as a new 'power-dome' hood (ironic given the new 3-cylinder, 1.0-liter engine). These changes allign it with the new Fusion/Mondeo that will also make its debut in Paris.
The rest of the car has also been freshened up with new wheel designs and rear lamp clusters.
inside, a new center stack features Ford SYNC voice-activated in-car connectivity system, Active City Stop and the European debut of MyKey.
MyKey is designed to give parents the ability to configure maximum speed and audio volume limits to encourage their teenagers to drive safely. It also mutes audio until seat belts are fastened and makes sure that driver aids and safety systems cannot be turned off.
