    Spying: 2018 Ford Fiesta Grows Up


    • The next-generation Ford Fiesta makes its first appearance

    The first spy shots of the next-generation Ford Fiesta have made their way onto the internet. The most apparent thing that the photos reveal is that the Fiesta will grow in size. According to Automotive News, the redesign will fix one of the major complaints of the current Fiesta - a cramped interior. It looks like certain elements of current Fiesta, such as the wide grille, will be retained.

     

    Sources tell Automotive News that the next Fiesta (along with the 2018 Focus) will drop the Powershift dual-clutch transmission that has proven to be problematic. Expect three and four-cylinder engines to be on offer.

     

    The 2018 Ford Fiesta is expected to arrive sometime in the middle of 2017.

    I agree with FordCosworth, it has grown some, put on some bulk by the look of it.

     

    Gotta wonder how the depressed sales of autos across the board will affect this car.

    I don't think it's going to be on D6, so it's going to be a stretch and widen job.

     

    Basic profile reminds me of a Hyundai Accent hatch, though this appears to be taller.

     

    The grille has been widened but lowered in vertical height. 

     

    Some of these compact hatchs are started to look so similar, and I think this Fiesta is going to lose some of the design highlights of the current generation.

    For those who sadly cannot drive stick, the demise of the current automatic cannot come soon enough.  I'll be interested in seeing more of this, as I liked my '11 Fiesta for the few short munts I had it.
