Ford Fiesta Get a New Sedan Modification


The sixth generation of “Fiesta” in the body sedan debuted in 2008 at the Auto Show in Guangzhou. The place of the premiere was chosen not by chance, because the three-folder was conceived with an orientation toward the Chinese market, but later went on sale in the Americas, Australia and some countries of Asia.

By the way, the restyling version of the car for the first time “flashed” on the stage of the 2015 auto show in São Paulo, having changed in a similar vein with the hatchback of the same name, but having received more transformations: it redrawn the front and the rear, perfected the interior, reconfigured the steering and suspension, and instead of 4-band automatic installed a 6-band PowerShift robotic gearbox.

Like a Smaller Fusion

The body of the four-door Fiesta in front of its outlines and design is no different from those on the hatchback: a trapezoidal grille with horizontal bars, sophisticated optics with LED navigation lights and a bump in relief. On the side, this Fiesta is perceived as a compact sports sedan, which is facilitated by a sloping bonnet, passing into a heavily laden rear roof rack, the line of which in turn actively falls in the direction of the rear.

The stern of the three-compartment model casts associations with the bigger Ford Fusion, and most clearly the relationship is traced in the arrangement of the lanterns and the trunk lid.

Stylish cabin

The interior of the three-compartment Ford Fiesta almost exactly replicates the one on the hatchback: a comfortable steering wheel with a 3-spoke design, a stylish instrument cluster recessed in the wells, and an unusual center console with a split into two floors. High level of performance is supported by high-quality finishing materials, in particular soft plastics, inserts for piano lacquer and metal elements.

Formally, the Fiesta in the body sedan has a five-seater salon, but only four will be comfortable. The front row of seats demonstrates a well thought-out profile with good support on the sides and sufficient adjustments, and the rear sofa provides the necessary storage of space in height and in the legs.

In the arsenal of the Fiesta sedan of the sixth generation – a spacious luggage compartment, designed to carry 16.4 cu ft of luggage. Trunk has a convenient configuration, the back of the rear seats is transformed, releasing the volume for the transportation of lengthometers, but the flat cargo area does not work.

Three Options For One Engine

Ford Fiesta sedan is offered in three petrol versions equipped with a 1.6-liter 16-valve naturally aspirated engine, which is available in several levels of forcing. Depending on the variant, the engine generates: 85 horsepower and 103 ft lb of torque, 105 horsepower and 110 ft lb of traction, 120 horsepower and 112 ft lb of peak torque.

Gearboxes are two – manual with five speeds or a 6-speed PowerShift with two clutches, in motion are the wheels of the front axle. The best characteristics are the 120-hp sedan with a manual transmission, which accelerates from 0 to 60 in 9.9 seconds, gaining a top speed of 120 MPH.

Sixth generation Fiesta in the body of the sedan in a constructive plan repeats the hatch: platform B2E, independent suspension in the front and semi-independent rear, electric power steering, ventilated discs on the front wheels and drum mechanisms on the rear (in the “top” versions at the rear – disc).
