The seventh generation Ford Fiesta gets a much more appealing petrol engine, a 1.1-litre Ti-VCT unit, which slots in at the foot of its range. Jonathan Crouch takes a look.
This seventh generation Fiesta has grown up a bit, but it hasn't lost the youthful, eager feel that endeared previous generation models to so many supermini buyers. Beneath the smarter styling lies some clever user-friendly technology - and cabin quality that'll make down-sizing into one of these less of a chore. It also features a much more competitive entry-level petrol engine, a three cylinder 1.1-litre Ti-VCT unit.
What's been the world's most significant car in the last half a century? This is our nomination, Ford's Fiesta, rejuvenated here in MK7 model guise for a fresh generation of buyers. Believe or not, the bodywork's completely new; so is the suspension - and as a result, the driving dynamics are promised to be even better than ever. There's a brand new interior fashioned with much higher quality. And buyers will benefit from a fresh era of media connectivity and camera-driven safety technology. One of the most important changes over the previous model though, was the ditching of that old car's thirsty, inefficient four cylinder 1.25-litre petrol engine. In the place of that powerplant, entry-level buyers now get the three cylinder 1.1-litre Ti-VCT unit we're going to look at here, offered in either 70 or 85PS guises.
Variations on the Fiesta theme may come and go, but before driving any version of Ford's definitive supermini, there's one thing you almost always tend to know for certain: that it'll be a great steer. This time round, the Blue Oval brand has sought to retain that traditional Fiesta attribute, yet at the same time, introduce a standard of ride quality closer to that delivered by arch-rivals like Volkwagen's Polo. Out on the road, in some ways, this car isn't quite the sharp, eager thing we remembered from before, but it can still offer a level of handling joie de vivre that's beyond anything its competitors can manage. That's thanks to improved steering, a lightweight body that's now usefully stiffer and an effective torque vectoring system that helps you get the grip down in the corners. Engine-wise, all the volume petrol units are now three cylinder in configuration, the line-up propped up by the new 1.1-litre Ti-VCT powerplant we're looking at here, available with either 70 or 85PS. This engine borrows from much of the brand's EcoBoost technology and has been mated to a manual gearbox that we're told has been freshly-developed for it, despite the fact that it soldiers on with only five speeds. The base 70PS 1.1 Ti-VCT variant manages 62mph from rest in 14.9s en route to 99mph, while the 85PS version improves those figures to 14s and 105mph. It is a bit disappointing though, that with this engine, Ford hasn't fitted the rear disc brakes you get in most other models.
Though this seventh generation Fiesta might look much the same, dimensionally it's actually quite a fundamentally altered product, 70mm longer, 13mm wider and 20mm lower than before, plus virtually every constituent part of the car is different. You can see though, why the brand wanted the look and feel of this supermini to stay much the same. The company's European Design Director Joel Piaskowski says he wanted to evolve the styling in a way that would make it more contemporary without losing the essential 'Fiesta-ness' that customers love. That's what's been delivered. Inside, the cabin's much classier. There are flush, seamless surfaces, soft-touch plastic coatings and neat splashes of chrome, plus it all seems to have been very well screwed together by the factory in Cologne. Other than that, the first thing you'll probably notice is the infotainment system that now sprouts in free-standing form from the top of the centre console. The screen options vary depending on the model or options you choose - there are 4.2, 6.5 or, as in this case, 8.0-inch sizes, all featuring pin-sharp graphics, logical menus and fast processor speeds. In the rear, there's 16mm more knee room than there was before, plus the seats are softer and offer greater side-to-side support. The extra body length has allowed the cargo area to be 17-litres larger than it was before, now rated at 292-litres for both three and five-door bodyshapes.
Prices for the base 1.1-litre Ti-VCT petrol unit variants stat at around £13,000 and there's a choice of 70 or 85PS variants. Equipment levels are very reasonable this time round. Even with base 'Style' trim, you get air conditioning, Bluetooth with the 'My Ford Device Dock' for your smartphone handset and an 'Emergency Assistance' system that'll automatically summon help should the airbags go off. Other standard features include a 6-speaker audio system, a trip computer, driver's seat height adjustment, daytime running lights, auto headlamps, a speed limiter and a pretty complete package of safety features that we'll over later. Plus there's the Ford 'My Key' system that lets you set certain functions that can be restricted with the spare individual keyfob provided, so for instance, the volume of the stereo or the maximum speed can be limited for younger drivers. As a parent, that feature alone would really sell this car to me. Let's consider this Fiesta's safety credentials. Ford says that the B-pillar and the doors have been re-designed to provide better side-impact protection this time round and every variant is fitted with seven airbags - twin front, side and curtain 'bags, plus one for the driver's knees. For highway safety, all variants get two features you wouldn't expect to see fitted right across the range on a supermini: there's a 'Lane Keeping Alert' system that warns you if you veer out of lane and a 'Lane Keeping Aid' that will automatically steer you gently back to where you should be.
One of Ford's priorities this time round was to get the Fiesta's efficiency showing up to scratch right across the range. In the previous generation line-up, the figures you got from the 1.0T EcoBoost turbo petrol three cylinder powerplant and the TDCi diesel units were exemplary - but these were comparatively pricey engine options. In contrast, the returns delivered by the old-fashioned 1.25-litre petrol unit that budget-minded customers often found themselves stuck with at the bottom of the range were terrible. In this day and age, a supermini unable to crack 55mpg on the combined cycle and putting out more than 120g/km of CO2 has an efficiency problem: Ford had to sort it. They have. The normally aspirated entry-level 1.1-litre Ti-VCT three cylinder powerplant we've been looking at here shares much of the technology of the pokier EcoBoost turbo units including, crucially, their engine stop/start systems. As a result, the figures you get are very sensible by class standards, though still not quite as impressive as those of the petrol turbo models. This base engine comes in either 70 or 85PS guises and either way, delivers 64.2mpg on the combined cycle and 101g/km of CO2. Insurance for this 1.2-litre variant is pitched at group 2E for the 70PS derivative, while the 85PS version is group 5E.
The Ford Fiesta has always been a vehicle the British public has warmed to, but the truth is that before this seventh generation model arrived, supermini buyers chose this car either because it was great to drive or because they'd been offered a deal too good to turn down: there wasn't really another reason to buy one. This model changes all that, smarter to look at, smarter to sit in, smarter to operate and affordable to buy and run in this base 1.1-litre Ti-VCT guise. In short, this is, more than ever, a small car that supermini buyers simply can't ignore.
The Ford Fiesta has come of age. Jonathan Crouch takes a look at the much improved seventh generation version.
Ford's Fiesta has always been affordable and great to drive. But state of the art? It's that too in this all-new seventh generation form. Beneath the smarter styling lies some clever user-friendly technology - and cabin quality that'll make down-sizing into one of these less of a chore. This is how you right a best seller.
This Fiesta may still be a small car but these days, it thinks big in almost every way, starting with styling designed to make more of a statement in the supermini segment. Under the bonnet lies an impressively clean and frugal range of petrol and diesel units. Plus there's a more up-market cabin, safety technology that can automatically brake the car for you even at night and a pokier diesel engine option. Ford has also broadened the appeal of the range with an 'Active' Crossover bodystyle, plus variants more specifically aimed at customers wanting luxury and sportiness. And as well as all that, the brand reckon that it'll be even more fun to drive than its predecessor. This is, in short, on paper at least, a thoroughly well thought out piece of supermini design. But will it be enough to keep Ford at the top of the sales charts? Let's find out.
Variations on the Fiesta theme may come and go but before driving any version of Ford's definitive supermini, there's one thing you almost always know for certain: that it'll be a great steer. This new generation model is 15% stiffer and both front and rear track measurements are wider. The engineers tell us that the chassis now offers 10% more cornering grip, supported by Electronic Torque Vectoring Control, which enhances the driving experience by applying a small amount of braking to inside wheels to assist traction and stability when cornering. Braking distances at 62mph are reduced by more than 8%. There are freshly developed five and six-speed manual gearboxes. And rear disc brakes feature on models with engines developing more than 100PS. Ah yes, engines: you'll want to know about those. The three cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol unit is carried over, here offered in 110, 125 and 140PS guises. Sharing this poweplant architecture is a lesser 1.1-litre normally aspirated unit, available at the foot of the range in 70 and 85PS guises. The 1.5-litre TDCi 85PS diesel unit is familiar from before too, but this time round, this powerplant is also being offered in a pokier 120PS guise.
If you go by the maxim that if something looks right, it is right, then you'll probably like the look of this seventh generation Fiesta. As before, it's offered in both three and five-door bodystyles and both are tidy pieces of styling with evolutionary styling and a bolder, wider front grille. The side profile is more settled and less wedge-shaped, combining with 71mm of additional body length and 12mm of additional width to give what Ford hopes is a longer and more premium appearance. Inside, it's completely different from what went before. Gone is the previous button-heavy fascia with its cheap plastics. In fact, the number of buttons on the centre console has been reduced by almost half, with many connectivity and entertainment controls relocated to a freshly developed 'SYNC3' 8-inch touchscreen. A semi-translucent piano black insert stretches all the way from the instrument binnacle to the centre console, giving the cabin a touch of class. Rear seat passengers benefit from 16mm more knee room, supported by new slim-back seats that are softer, and offer greater side-to-side support. This Fiesta's tailgate is wider for easier access to the boot, and improved storage for personal belongings is delivered with a 20% larger glovebox and a 1-litre media bin in the centre console.
As before, there's a choice of either three or five-door bodystyles. Expect Mk7 model Fiesta pricing to start at around £13,000 for entry-level 'Style' models, but most private customers will buy in at the mid-range 'Zetec' level that starts at just under £15,000. Beyond that, there are 'Titanium', 'Titanium X', 'ST-Line', 'ST-Line X' and 'Vignale' specification options. Plus 'Zetec' and 'Titanium' models can be ordered with a 'B&O Play' audio system upgrade. And of course, you can talk to your dealer about the sporty 'ST' version and the Fiesta 'Active' variant that offers SUV styling cues that target the growing Crossover market. Whatever your choice, you'll be offered some up-scale equipment options, examples including an openable panoramic glass roof. There's sophisticated safety too, including a Pedestrian Detection system that can even prevent collisions at night. And 'Active Park Assist' with brake interventions to prevent low-speed collisions when parking hands-free. As for standard equipment, even base models get features like air conditioning, Bluetooth, an 'Emergency Assistance' system and a 6-speaker stereo.
The Ford Fiesta has garnered a reputation for being one of the cheapest superminis to run and this continues. In fact what's remarkable about this improved range is how so many models go below 100g/km. It's now the exception where you find a variant in this line-up that puts out more than the ton. Take the new 120PS 1.5-litre TDCi engine which returns a CO2 emissions figure of 89g/km - or 82g/km in 95PS form. That's down to optimised combustion chamber design, turbocharging - including variable geometry technology for the 120PS version - and sophisticated fuel injection that also enhances refinement. Smart Regenerative Charging enhances fuel efficiency by selectively engaging the alternator and charging the battery when the vehicle is coasting and braking. Ford's 1.1-litre petrol engine shares a three-cylinder architecture with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost unit, replacing the outgoing naturally aspirated 1.25-litre petrol engine and delivering more power and anticipated reduced CO2emissions from 101g/km. Fuel efficiency is further enhanced with AutoStartStop technology offered for all engines, and a clever Active Grille Shutter for 1.0-litre EcoBoost and 85 PS 1.5-litre TDCi engines. A new Eco button for manual transmissions adjusts engine and throttle settings to help drivers save even more fuel when desired. Underbody aero shielding further reduces aero drag.
The Ford Fiesta has always been a vehicle the British public has warmed to but the truth is that before this seventh generation model arrived, supermini buyers chose this car either because it was great to drive or because they'd been offered a deal too good to turn down: there wasn't really another reason to buy one. This MK7 version changes all that, smarter to look at, smarter to sit in, smarter to operate and smarter under the bonnet. A smarter choice all round then? Many will think so. This still may not be the largest or the plushest car in the supermini sector but on just about every other main criteria, it's either up there or class-leading. There's an unpretentious quality to it and a focus on providing the things that really matter to small car buyers - the fun handling and affordable technology Ford has long delivered to them in this segment but also the low running costs, strong safety provision and low emissions they now need too. And it's all been done with a polish and self belief that we've never seen from a Fiesta before. In short, this is, more than ever, a small car that supermini buyers simply can't ignore.
Ford's Fiesta has always been a key model in the supermini sector but the latest seventh generation model is aiming to put rivals well and truly in the shade. June Neary takes a look.
You must have heard of Ford's Fiesta. Women like me and family people up and down the country depend on it. It's been right up amongst the most popular small cars in the UK ever since the launch of the original version way back in 1976 (yes, it was that long ago). Needless to say, Ford's finest has changed massively down the years but rarely, if ever, has the model line made as significant a step forward as the one that Ford say has taken place with the current seventh generation model which now has segment leading technology and further develops Ford's clever three cylinder EcoBoost engine range. Today's Fiesta is a massively important car for Ford and nothing has been left to chance in ensuring it hits the spot with its target market. As target markets go, the Fiesta's is a massive one. This is a small car that needs to appeal across the board to people from all sections of society. First impressions are that it stands a good chance of pulling this off. The car uses the Kinetic design features that have cropped up to critical acclaim across the Ford model range but to you and me, it just looks angular, sporty and well planted on the road. Looking good is half the battle in the supermini sector and the Fiesta certainly manages to do that.
The outside look has merely evolved but I still like it. As before, it's offered in both three and five-door bodystyles and both are tidy pieces of styling with evolutionary styling and a bolder, wider front grille. The side profile is more settled and less wedge-shaped, combining with 71mm of additional body length and 12mm of additional width to give what Ford hopes is a longer and more premium appearance. Inside, the old button-heavy fascia with its cheap plastics that I used to hate has gone. In fact, the number of buttons on the centre console has been reduced by almost half, with many connectivity and entertainment controls relocated to a freshly developed 'SYNC3' 8-inch touchscreen. My passengers were pleased to find that rear seat folk now benefit from 16mm more knee room, supported by new slim-back seats that are softer, and offer greater side-to-side support. This Fiesta's tailgate is wider for easier access to the boot, and improved storage for personal belongings is delivered with a 20% larger glovebox and a 1-litre media bin in the centre console. The windows are small and set high up, so light isn't abundant in the back which might trouble some kids but the shopping bags, coats and road atlases that owners will store there most of the time won't be overly worried. The five door models fare better with a bigger glass area creating a roomier feel and all derivatives share the same easily navigable control system for their various electronic functions. General build quality is a real eye-opener. The Fiesta feels like a far more sophisticated and grown-up car than the models which preceded it and a lot of this is down to the all-round quality of the materials, as well as the solidity with which they knit together.
Despite the fact that it's lighter than previous generation models, today's Fiesta manages to feel larger and more solid on the road - an impressive achievement by Ford's engineers. This new generation model is 15% stiffer and both front and rear track measurements are wider. The engineers tell me that the chassis now offers 10% more cornering grip, supported by Electronic Torque Vectoring Control, which enhances the driving experience by applying a small amount of braking to inside wheels to assist traction and stability when cornering. Braking distances at 62mph are reduced by more than 8%. There are freshly developed five and six-speed manual gearboxes. And rear disc brakes feature on models with engines developing more than 100PS. Ah yes, engines: you'll want to know about those. The three cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol unit is carried over from before, offered in 110, 125 and 140PS guises. Sharing this poweplant's architecture is a lesser 1.1-litre normally aspirated unit, available at the foot of the range in 70 and 85PS forms. The 1.5-litre TDCi 85PS diesel unit is familiar from before too, but this time round, this powerplant is also being offered in a pokier 120PS guise.
Like most superminis, this Fiesta sells in the £13,000 to £18,000 bracket - and there's a small premium if you want to progress from the three-door to the five-door bodystyle. Most private customers will buy in at the mid-range 'Zetec' level that starts at just under £15,000. Beyond that, there are 'Titanium', 'Titanium X', 'ST-Line', 'ST-Line X' and 'Vignale' specification options. Plus 'Zetec' and 'Titanium' models can be ordered with a 'B&O Play' audio system upgrade. And of course, you can talk to your dealer about the sporty 'ST' version and the Fiesta 'Active' variant that offers SUV styling cues that target the growing Crossover market. I'd want to allow a bit extra for the clever options though, an example being the neat openable panoramic glass roof. There's sophisticated safety too, including a Pedestrian Detection system that can even prevent collisions at night. And 'Active Park Assist' with brake interventions to prevent low-speed collisions when parking hands-free. As for standard equipment, even base models get features like air conditioning, Bluetooth, an 'Emergency Assistance' system and a 6-speaker stereo.
The latest version of this Ford Fiesta is a thoroughly impressive car with very few discernable flaws. Ford has elevated its supermini stalwart to a level where it's a prime target for rival manufacturers developing their own new products. Good luck to them in trying to beat this one.
