Ford shows updated 2013 Fiesta sedan in Brazil

Very few cars showing up at this year's São Paulo Motor Show have relevance to the US market, but the refreshed 2013 Ford Fiesta sedan certainly does. The Paris Motor Show has already given us a look at the global styling of the 2013 Fiesta hatchback, and now we get to see what changes are in store for the four-door version of the car. Although this updated global design is for the 2013 model year, these changes will wait until the 2014 model year for the US-spec Fiesta.

As expected, the 2013 Fiesta gets a healthy dose of Ford's latest design language, the restyled car gets a very similar appearance to the 2013 Fusion starting with the narrowed headlights, powerdome hood and the Aston Martin-inspired grille. Ford also did some cosmetic work to the rear of the Fiesta sedan with reshaped taillights to go along with a new decklid and fascia design. There were no images released for the new sedan, but the 2013 hatchback received minor upgrades including a new gauge cluster, steering wheel and door panels.

Re: Ford shows updated 2013 Fiesta sedan in Brazil

ya know
if the Fiesta was a little wider, I'd prolley prefer to the Focus

(it's not just the front - imho the Fiesta packages its interior room there's practically no benefit imho to the longer Focus)

I like the Mondeo-ish rear end, however not sure how I feel about the front just yet

Wow! Love the new look. Ford sure is making their vehicles with upmarket style now.
