2013 Ford Fiesta Facelift

The Ford Fiesta might be a relatively new car in America, and an unsuccessful one at that, but this particular model is actually the sixth generation model that was launched in 2008 onto the European market. Needless to say, a car that’s been on the market for over four years needs a makeover, and a significant refresh is indeed coming.

Prototypes for the mid-life refreshed Fiesta have been testing since last winter, indicating a full reveal is just around the corner. This rendering was created based on those very sighting to give you a better idea of what the refreshed Fiesta will look like.

The small upper grille and huge lower one of the 2008 model are being inverted, so the Fiesta now has a huge, gaping face. This likely means small performance enhancements across the engine range through better breathing and also the introduction of active air vents with flaps that close to increase aerodynamic efficiency, like on the Focus.

Also new to the Fiesta will be the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost and SYNC system, both of which made their debut with the B-MAX. We suspect the 1.0-liter turbo unit will be available (in two power outputs) in combination with the existing 1.4 and 1.6-liter engines it was supposed to replace, mainly in order to offer budged buyers a cheaper base car.

The Fiesta sedan, originally launched in China and America, will likely also be sold in Europe.
