The main difference between the old and new Fiesta
is the uprated engine. The previous version of the Fiesta housed a 1.6-litre engine which was down-rated to 1.5-litres for improved fuel efficiency. Cosmetic changes include new front bumper and grille design and a re-vamped interior dashboard. The new Fiesta also comes with safety airbags for the driver and passenger across all the variants which were previously available only in the top-end models.
Another major change included the pricing which is significantly higher than that of its main competitors.
