Ford Fiesta receives striking facelift for 2013

Ford Fiesta receives striking facelift for 2013

The 2013 Ford Fiesta is set to provide drivers with a more sophisticated look over previous models when it goes on sale in the new year.

Petrolheads have so much to love about the newest Fiesta on the market, with its exterior featuring "design cues inspired by the latest Ford global design language" and its interior described by Ford as being "harmonious and ergonomically optimised".

Let's have a look at just what makes the 2013 Ford Fiesta such a brilliant work of mechanical art.

An exterior that simply must be studied in awe

The exterior of the all-new Ford Fiesta is split almost in half between an entirely fresh design at the front end and many familiar features towards the rear.

We will begin with what is different about this Fiesta compared to its predecessors, which is highlighted by its front being converted to conform to the Ford Focus' edgier style.

So what does this mean for those keen to splash the cash on the 2013 Ford Fiesta? It's a face featuring a trapezoidal front grille, new rakish headlights and a 'power-dome' bonnet.

Looking at the car from the rear though and fans of the Fiesta range may find it difficult to spot too many changes in the new model compared to the outgoing model. However, the predecessor's rump has long been praised for being a tightly styled affair, so this is by no means a flaw for the all-new Fiesta.

Step into style heaven with the new Ford Fiesta's striking interior

Just like the exterior of the 2013 Ford Fiesta, there is not much different about the new car's interior when compared to the outgoing model.

Once again though, it is what has been added on top of the usual features that help to make the all-new Fiesta stand out from the crowd, as well as its predecessors.

To begin with, some extra chrome detailing has been added around the steering wheel, the dashboard and driver and passenger doors.

What's more, the half-leather colour combination that has been afforded to the seat, dashboard and door designs gives the interior a distinctive look.

Become one with Ford's cutting-edge technology

As well as being the pioneer of modern-day vehicle designs, Ford has become famous more recently for its state-of-the-art technology musings. Fans of the 2013 Fiesta will be pleased to hear that the new model comes complete with these unique systems.

For starters, drivers of the 2013 Ford Fiesta will be able to see why there is so much attention surrounding the American manufacturer's SYNC in-car connectivity system.

The list of what makes this technology so special just goes on and on. Owners will be able to make voice-activated phone calls from their wheel with the aid of Bluetooth, while music lovers can select their best tunes via a Bluetooth or USB source.

Would you like to have the reassurance that your 2013 Fiesta will get in touch with emergency services should you get into a spot of bother on the road? Or perhaps hear your text messages read aloud while you drive? The Ford SYNC in-car system does all this too.

The all-new Fiesta also marks the European debut of Ford MyKey. Sure to be a welcome feature for concerned parents nationwide, the system enables owners to program a key so that a car's top speed is limited, as well as alert a driver to wear their seat belt or when the car should be refuelled.

Drivers can get their hands on the all-new Ford Fiesta on New Year's Day 2013.
