The similar vehicle has been doing test runs in India as well for quite some time now, which made us contact to our trusted sources in the Industry. And as per them, the Fiesta hatchback will be rolled out in India in the first quarter of 2013, to be precise in February or March, and will be positioned right above the company's flagship hatchback, the Figo that as well has received a facelift recently.
Ford India had shared its plans of launching 8 new products in the Indian auto market by 2015, new Ford Fiesta was the first of those 8 products, the much awaited Ford EcoSport compact SUV will be the next to come in, and the Ford Fiesta hatchback will be the third vehicle to make its presence in the sub-continent. Ford Focus, new Mondeo and an entry level hatch are other three vehicles that the Ford is expected to launch in India.
Like the EcoSport, the new Ford Fiesta hatchback will as well come powered by the award winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which produces the impressive 99bhp and promises to return the class-leading mileage. The Fiesta's face gets the trapezoidal front grille, bracketed by laser-cut headlamps with daytime running lamps that use LED technology, and features a power-dome bonnet design.
What more features the upcoming Ford Fiesta hatchback will come up with include Active City Stop Emergency Assistance; Sync Voice activated multimedia system with USB and Bluetooth. It also mutes audio until seat belts are fastened and ensures driver aids, safety systems and more vigorous alerts cannot be deactivated when used. As far as the pricing of the vehicle is concerned, we are expecting it to come in a range between 6 and 8 lakh to compete against the Hyundai i20 and Volkswagen Polo.
