Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, our team has got some information that the latest Ford Fiesta could hit the US market as a 2019 Ford Fiesta model. Namely, this hatchback has been one of the most popular and best-selling models in the European market, but that’s not been quite a case with the US. Perhaps, the next-generation changes and improvements will bring more success.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta, you shouldn’t hope for some revolutionary and unique changes. However, the new Fiesta will seem much more modern, futuristic and aggressive than its predecessor. It will share the platform with the current model, but it will get larger proportions as well. The first feature that you will probably notice is that the new Fiesta appears wider in the front and rear end. This definitely promises better handling and stability, especially at higher speeds. Its body will be stiffer with lots of upgraded exterior details. This refreshed hatchback will appear in two configurations when it comes to body style – a two door and a four-door version. We still haven’t got the information which of these two will be offered in the US market.
The 2019 Ford Fiesta is going to reveal some really modern and upgraded interior. First of all, its cabin will be quieter thanks to an improved acoustic isolation and materials that the carmaker has used. The outside noise and vibrations will be reduced, so you will enjoy the ride even more. Also, you will love the fact that there will be more space for you and your passengers. Even the rear seats will provide a perfect accommodation and comfort. Buyers can also expect some high-quality materials to be used and the carmaker will follow the next-generation trends and upgrade its high-tech section as well. The driver will get an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest SYNC3 infotainment and entertainment system. When it comes to safety and driver assist features, some of them will include airbags, seatbelts, adaptive cruise control, park assist, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning and pedestrian detection.
The 2019 Ford Fiesta will offer more than one engine choice under its hood. However, it seems that the two of them will be available in the US market. The first one includes the standard engine version, found in the current model that uses a 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine. The other could come with a 1.0-liter Eco Boost three-cylinder gas engine that hits 138 horsepower. The new Fiesta will probably offer a choice of a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Ford Fiesta Release Date and Price
