All New Fiesta ...now including Fiesta ST

So I'm assuming an all new Fiesta should be coming up here pretty soon with the car having been around since the 2011 MY in the US and being refreshed for 2014 MY, so I'm guessing it would be 2017 or 2018 at the latest. My question is has anybody heard or seen anything about the new Fiesta?

Re: All New Fiesta

afaik, 2018 is about when we should hear something from the A.M.P program


&
isn't the Fiesta more 'important' to other markets (meaning a bigger % of their total sales)?
Maybe we can get a clue from when They need a major-refresh or more?

Re: All New Fiesta

Fiesta is an odd duck .. it is not based on the C architecture (like everything else is) ... so I am not sure .. with Mazda spun off, I wonder what Ford has up their sleeve.

All we have so far is photos of the next gen Fiesta mule.
What appears to be the platform being tested under a modified version of the current body.

This was initially thought to be an Fiesta RS mule by some publications, but its high ride height, narrow wheels and vertical intercooler suggests that this has a 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine. It's wider track means the new Fiesta will be slightly wider than the current model.

The front camo is probably to test the cooling for the new grill openings.

My guess is we'll probably see spy photos of camo'd next gen Fiestas with its new body by next year.

Re: All New Fiesta

So what do we see here ... maybe slightly wider track, same/ similar wheelbase ... They may actually keep a lot of the platform and just replace the top hat.

The next gen Focus does need to be bigger, at least as far as rear legroom. The only way the rear seat in my Focus in comfortable is if you have no legs, whereas my sister in law has a new Elantra and there is tons of legroom in the back.

I remember seeing this and everybody was thinking it was the RS. I'm really looking forward to the next Fiesta as it's one of my favorite cars in the Ford lineup.

Re: All New Fiesta

Hoping this program comes along with a new US-bound EcoSport. The sedan/hatchback Fiesta isn't a significant product in the US market but a EcoSport would be and it's sorely needed since Ford is the only one absent.

I'm amazed it's taken this long for the EcoSport to come to the US. Almost everybody else has a vehicle in the class, Ford needs one too.
